iF Awards for Beckhoff products

Judges impressed by function and design

The ultra-compact C6015 industrial PC has been honored with the iF Gold Award by the iF Industrie Forum Design in the Product category. Beckhoff was also named an “iF Winner” in the same category for its CU81xx-series UPS components. The design of both model ranges was developed for Beckhoff by Frank Greiser and Brigitte Adrian of Design AG in Rheda-Wiedenbrück.

The C6015 impressed the judges with its compact and attractive architecture while delivering great performance and functionality, especially within the context of the internet of things and cloud computing. This was Beckhoff’s first iF Gold Award.

The models of the CU81xx series combine intelligent power supply and storage technologies for secure shutdowns during voltage drops. This application also determines the design. Beckhoff offers a space-optimized version, a performance-optimized version, and a version with condensers. The housings can be mounted on the standard C-rail in the component cabinet or with a flange attachment. The batteries are accessible from the front, which makes replacing them easy even in tight quarters with permanently installed wiring. Interfaces like USB 2.0 or UPS-OCT provide status information for PC-based diagnostics and configuration.

The iF Design Award honors special accomplishments in industrial design. It was introduced in 1954 and is conferred each year for outstanding product design by the highly respected iF Industrie Forum Design e.V., which has its headquarters in Hanover, Germany.
