Beckhoff at Logimat 2019

Optimised intralogistics: with open, PC-based control technology

At LogiMat 2019 in Stuttgart, PC-based Control specialists from Beckhoff will be demonstrating how logistics users can respond even more flexibly to market trends and optimise logistics processes with an automation platform that is designed with openness in mind. An essential prerequisite for this openness are interfaces with standardised hardware and software, which facilitate connection of the IoT and control technology to existing infrastructures and servers.

The modular and precisely scalable range of Beckhoff automation and drive technology components enable even the most complex intralogistics scenarios to be implemented.

PC-based Control: the fully integrated control platform

The Beckhoff control solution is based on a uniform hardware and software platform consisting of Industrial PCs, Embedded Controllers, EtherCAT and decentralised I/Os and drives. TwinCAT is an integrated automation software, which bundles all the machine functions that are required, including PLC, Motion Control, CNC, robotics, HMI, vision, safety and measurement technology, cloud communication and data analysis.

Open for integration into existing infrastructures: TwinCAT

TwinCAT handles all runtime functions in real-time and simultaneously serves as a development environment for programming, diagnostics and configuration, with all main IEC 61131-3 programming languages and interfaces for C/C++ and MATLAB®/Simulink® modules. Open interfaces open up a wide range of options, such as integration into existing visualisation, control and database systems. TwinCAT also supports functions and protocols that determine the implementation of the Smart Connected Warehouse concept as new standards for Industrie 4.0 and IoT solutions.

Open design: IoT concepts without limitation to specific cloud services

With TwinCAT IoT, standardised interfaces and protocols such as OPC UA, Beckhoff offers the basis for implementing IoT and Industrie 4.0 solutions. Here, too, users benefit from the openness of the control architecture, for example through unrestricted choice of the cloud solution. All the systems involved in the configuration, including control level, warehouse management and e-commerce software, are fully networked. This enables fast and intelligent handling of all products and reliable order processing. TwinCAT Analytics is a tool for system-integrated data storage and comprehensive analysis functions. Based on seamless data analysis, individual predictive maintenance concepts can be implemented and machine downtimes can be reduced.

Open and flexible: the ultra-compact Industrial PC series

Open and flexible:
the ultra-compact Industrial PC series

The Industrial PC series launched with the C6015 is characterised by a small footprint, universal applicability and flexible installation. The C6017 offers additional interfaces and an integrated UPS. The C6030 provides maximum computing power with four cores and up to 3.6 GHz per core. The series is complemented by the new C6032, which offers additional interfaces compared to the C6030.

Open and scalable safety solutions: TwinSAFE

Open and scalable safety solutions: TwinSAFE

With the new generation of Beckhoff safety controllers, the intelligence of the entire safety application is distributed via the TwinSAFE Logic-capable I/O modules. This enables even more efficient and flexible modularization and adaptation to the specific safety requirements of individual machine concepts.

Opens up new savings potential: AMP8000

Opens up new savings potential: AMP8000

The AMP8000 servomotor with directly integrated servo drive paves the way for the minimisation of the control cabinet. The performance values remain unchanged with a virtually identical size. Reduction to a single coupling module supplying several servomotors via a single cable saves material, space, costs and mounting effort.

Open for image processing: TwinCAT Vision

TwinCAT Vision integrates image processing tasks directly into the PC-based automation platform, including detection, measurement, identification, pick-and-place and quality control. In addition, all control functions derived from the image processing can be synchronised precisely in real-time in a runtime. Engineering takes place directly in the PLC. GigE Vision interface supports line scan and area scan cameras.
