Experience the full range of PC-based automation!

Beckhoff is presenting its full range of products for PC and EtherCAT-based control technology at the Hannover Messe 2018. Experience our components, systems and the latest technology highlights in five technology forums. Through the consistent bundling of the control intelligence in the software, PC-based control combines all functions such as PLC, Motion Control and IoT in a single system. This year’s trade show presentation will focus on the integration of image processing, high-precision measurement technology and cloud services in the central controller.

TwinCAT Vision

Beckhoff has integrated comprehensive image processing functions into its controller with TwinCAT Vision. Machine manufacturers can program image processing tasks directly in the PLC. This covers various tasks, such as detection and measurement of components as well as the identification of codes. The result: contemporary machine concepts that increase the competitiveness and investment security.

C6030 ultra-compact IPC

Starting with the C6015, the new series of ultra-compact Industrial PCs has proven itself through its flexible usage possibilities. With the new C6030 the benefits such as low space requirement, universal usability and flexible mounting now also stand for applications with the highest performance demands. The multi-core computer integrates Intel® Core™-i processors of the 6th and 7th generation in a space of 129 x 133 x 76 mm and offers top performance with four cores and up to 3.6 GHz per core.

EtherCAT Terminals

In the EL922x EtherCAT terminal series, Beckhoff has integrated electronic overcurrent protection for the protection of 24 V DC system components directly in the EtherCAT system. This enables a condition monitoring which reduces downtimes and consequently also costs. Another advantage is the reduced space requirement compared with conventional solutions due to two protection channels on only 12 mm width.

AMP8000 servo drive

The AMP8000 integrates the servo drive directly in the servomotor in a very compact design. By shifting the power electronics to the machine, the space requirement in the control cabinet is reduced to a single coupling module that supplies several servo drives with just one cable via a distributor module. The result: a significant saving of material, space, costs and assembly work.
