Beckhoff at Hannover Messe 2024

Smart, digital automation with PC-based control

Hannover Messe

Pioneering automation solutions for sustainable production

Today, sustainability plays an essential role in improving many manufacturing procedures and processes. We will present innovative technology with PC-based control that boosts the efficiency of your machines and systems, e.g. with artificial intelligence, at Hannover Messe 2024. See how automation engineers can intuitively develop their own AI models and integrate them into the control system or feed excess energy in the drive system back into the power grid. Find out which of our innovations can give you a competitive edge first-hand.

Precise, flexible, and powerful: Combined multi-functional terminals

  • multi-functional inputs that cover all standard signals in the ±10 V and ±20 mA range (EL307x and EL407x), available in various signal combinations and channel densities, along with combined analog inputs and outputs (EL4374)
  • high output power allows loads of up to 750 Ω (current) or > 2 kΩ (voltage) to be connected
  • low analog uncertainty at less than 0.1% and extended measurement/output ranges (±107%) enable high production quality and precise process control, even at the limit range
  • 16-bit resolution and channel conversion rates of 2 ksps enable close process monitoring and control
  • plain text description of analog values and parameters with floating point numbers simplify commissioning enormously

Performance boost through CPU cores in turbo mode: TwinCAT Core Boost

  • configure the clock frequency of individual processor cores as required
  • up to 50% more computing power for one or more processor cores allows more complex applications to be run on one CPU or implementation of more cost-effective CPUs
  • can be used with all industrial PCs with Intel® Core™ i processors from the 11th generation
  • reliable operation thanks to power consumption and temperature monitoring
  • parameterization and monitoring in runtime are integrated in TwinCAT
