Five forums, one central idea: the full spectrum of PC-based automation

At the SPS IPC Drives trade show, which will be held in Nuremberg from 22 to 24 November 2016, Beckhoff will present the entire portfolio of PC and EtherCAT-based control technology on now 1,800 m² . Divided into five forums, the booth gives an overview of the comprehensive range of products and systems from Beckhoff. Product innovations from all areas of technology, maximally scalable automation and motion solutions and the Industrie 4.0 theme park offer visitors to Hall 7 vivid demonstrations of the fascination of automation. The Beckhoff team looks forward to seeing you at Booth 406.

Five forums, one central idea: the full spectrum of PC-based automation

Motion
The Motion Forum: Highly-scalable drive technology and new applications for the linear transport system XTS

I/O
The I/O Forum: Modular I/O systems plus product innovations for EtherCAT P and high-end measurement technology

Industrie 4.0
The Industrie 4.0 Forum: Live demos of networked production facilities, including cloud connectivity to Microsoft Azure™, Amazon Web Services™ and SAP HANA® Cloud Platform

Automation
The TwinCAT and TwinSAFE Forum: All the software solutions for PC-based control: PLC, motion control, HMI, measurement technology, analytics and safety

IPC
The IPC Forum: Multi-touch panels, Industrial PCs and Embedded PCs – all highly-scalable to cover every need from mini PCs to many-core servers

High-end measurement technology for PC-based control:
the EtherCAT measurement technology modules

A new series of devices will make high-end measurement technology an integrated part of PC-based control. These new EtherCAT measurement technology modules can be directly integrated into the modular EtherCAT Terminal system. A metal housing offers optimised shielding and cooling for measurement technology applications and increased flexibility with regard to interfaces, such as for LEMO or BNC connectors.

  • Fast: sampling rates of up to 50,000 samples per second
  • Precision timing: precise synchronisation < 1 μs
  • Precision values: measuring accuracy of 100 ppm at 23 °C
  • Proactive: integrated connection and function diagnostics

Welcome to the Industrie 4.0 theme park: Experience the connected production!

Welcome to the Industrie 4.0 theme park: Experience the connected production!

The Industrie 4.0 forum will show you how PC-based control from Beckhoff can be used to implement Industrie 4.0 and IoT applications. Here you can not only experience ways of integrating big data and analysis applications but also other aspects of the connected production:

  • Seamless data acquisition in sync with the processing cycle using TwinCAT Analytics to enable predictive maintenance and machine optimisation
  • Support of standardised protocols for straight-forward cloud communication using TwinCAT IoT
  • Renowned cloud service providers Microsoft, SAP and Amazon will present their cloud services for industrial applications

“Plug and Cloud” with the IoT Bus Coupler

With Industrial PCs and TwinCAT IoT, Beckhoff enables control of complex machinery with simultaneous cloud connectivity. The new IoT Bus Coupler EK9160 for EtherCAT Terminals also enables the easy and secure transfer of process data to cloud systems independently of a control system. The configuration is simple and can be carried out – without the need for programming – via the integrated web server.

  • Wide range of applications in all areas of machine building and building technology
  • Optional use as stand-alone solution or integrated into existing control systems
  • Flexible connection to public or local cloud systems
