Beckhoff at Light + Building 2024

Energy efficient building automation with PC-based control

Light + Building

Automation solutions for sustainable buildings

Light + Building invites you to Frankfurt am Main from March 3 − 8, 2024. Find out how you can use PC-based control to reduce the costs of building automation right from the project planning and installation stages and reduce energy consumption for your buildings in operation.

We would be happy to demonstrate how TwinCAT 3 Building Automation allows you to integrate all systems on one platform and analyze energy consumption in detail. Beckhoff offers a comprehensive portfolio of automation components for this purpose, e.g. current transformers and EtherCAT Terminals for energy measurement through to the integration of your charging infrastructure. Beckhoff provides you with a powerful communication system with EtherCAT as a fieldbus for building automation, which includes interfaces to sub-systems such as BACnet, M-Bus, DALI, or gateways for radio-based solutions such as LoRaWan.

An extensive program of events will also be on offer at Light + Building. You can find the details on the event page.

We look forward to seeing you at Booth C56 in Hall 11.0.
