Beckhoff at Prolight + Sound 2018

Benefit from the advantages of a universal and highly compact automation platform!

At Prolight + Sound 2018, Beckhoff will be presenting its system-spanning, high-performance automation solution for all areas of stage and show technology. Its high level of integration and extensive connectivity options – from supporting industry-specific communication standards to cloud connectivity – make it an integrated platform that is ideal for controlling all systems and devices. The highlights at the Beckhoff trade show booth will be components that are impressive with their high efficiency and compact form factor.

An integrated automation platform for stage, show and building technology

The Beckhoff I/O systems provide interfaces to all common sensor and actuator technologies. Through integration of DMX, sACN, SMPTE Timecode, Art-Net™, PosiStageNet and AES70 (OCA) into the PC platform, all technical stage and show systems and devices can be optimally networked to ensure that every event is a perfectly staged event. For programming and configuration purposes, TwinCAT provides a uniform software platform.

High-end computing power in an ultra-compact design ideal for stage control

At Prolight + Sound, Beckhoff is presenting two representatives of the new generation of Industrial PCs: The latest addition, the C6030, combines the ultra-compact design of the C6015 with maximised computing power and up to 3.9 GHz per core. This makes it an ideal all-in-one controller for stage control as well as cloud and IT applications.

Increased flexibility and reduced space requirements with the AMP8000 Servo Drive system

The AMP8000 distributed Servo Drive system integrates the servo drive directly into the servomotor, breaking new ground for modular application concepts. By relocating the power electronics directly to the application, the space requirements within the control cabinet are reduced to a single coupling module that can supply multiple servo drives with just one cable via a distribution module.

EL7411-9014 offers fast control technology in a compact design

EL7411-9014 offers fast control technology in a compact design

The EL7411-9014 EtherCAT Terminal offers high control performance in a highly compact design for the medium output range of BLDC motors. Due to the fast control technology and the connection of an incremental encoder, both very high speed profiles and dynamic positioning tasks can be implemented. Numerous monitoring functions afford maximum operational reliability.

EK1000 connects EtherCAT I/Os with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)

EK1000 connects EtherCAT I/Os with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)

With the EK1000 EtherCAT Coupler, Beckhoff broadens the application possibilities of EtherCAT in heterogeneous network environments. Through support of TSN functions, the coupler enables delay times caused by TSN switches in Ethernet networks to be minimised and the wide range of EtherCAT devices and EtherCAT I/O Terminals to be connected to the TSN world.

Small footprint and optimised diagnostics with system-integrated overcurrent protection

In the new EL922x EtherCAT Terminal series, Beckhoff has directly integrated electronic overcurrent protection into the highly compact EtherCAT I/O system in order to safeguard 24 V DC system components. In comparison with currently available protection devices, costs and space requirements in control cabinets can thus be reduced.
