Beckhoff congratulates on the win

Emirates Team New Zealand successfully defend America's Cup in Auckland

The Emirates Team New Zealand secured the seventh point and beat Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli 7:3 in the America's Cup. New Zealand has now won the oldest trophy in world sport four times.

Outstanding sailors made this success of the host team possible. Moreover, seven victories in ten races over seven days is a proof of great sportsmanship. It is impressive to see the hard work and meticulousness with which the team prepared for four years for this prestigeous sailing competition. We are proud that our automation technology was on board and part of the impressive victory at sea. Among the Beckhoff products, the New Zealand team in its high-tech boat used Industrial PCs and TwinCAT 3 automation software. EtherCAT Box modules and EtherCAT Terminals were also part of the solution.
