Beckhoff at Prolight + Sound 2017

Brings your ideas on stage: PC-based control.

At Prolight + Sound Beckhoff first introduced the principle of PC-based control for stage and show technology in 2011. Since then, PC-based control from Beckhoff has become firmly established in the event sector. References from all over the world demonstrate how PC-based control technology is an exact match for the diverse needs of stage and show technology with its high performance, modularity and comprehensive connectivity. As technology leader for PC-based automation, Beckhoff contributes to process optimisation on a variety of different levels: maximum performance, simplified operation, minimal installation space for control components and lower cost.

Come and see us at Booth B72 in Hall 3.0: Our experts for stage and show technology will personally show you our latest technological innovations and suggest ways of implementing your creative ideas using PC-based control.

More processing power. With the many-core CX series.

With the many-core CX series.

The new many-core CX has redefined the benchmarks for DIN rail PCs:

  • 4, 8 or 12 cores
  • task cycle times of 100 µs per core
  • high temperature stability from -25 °C to +60 :°C
  • a dedicated graphics card

Many-core CX

The fast way to a platform-independent user interface.
With TwinCAT HMI.

Instead of using proprietary systems, Beckhoff relies on IT standards:

  • Visual Studio® for engineering
  • HTML5 for design
  • TLS for secure communications
  • The user interface runs on any HTML5-enabled browser – regardless of operating system, resolution or display.

Utilise cloud-based services.
With TwinCAT IoT and TwinCAT Analytics.

Benefit from secure and straightforward cloud connectivity:

  • TwinCAT IoT supports standard protocols such as AMQP, MQTT and OPC UA for communicating with local or public cloud systems.
  • TwinCAT Analytics facilitates cycle-synchronous recording and analysis of process data as a basis for predictive maintenance.
