TX1000 | TwinCAT CP

TwinCAT CP is a driver for the Beckhoff Control Panels C6xxx and C7xxx, the industrial operating and display devices.

Control Panels are optimised for use as a human-machine interface. Operating and display elements create an independent unit, separated from the PC by a simple cable link.

TwinCAT CP creates the driver connection between general Windows programs and the operating and display elements on the Beckhoff Control Panel:

The driver permits variable-oriented operation of the Control Panel’s functions by the Windows programs.
