Beckhoff at Motek 2019

Performance leap in assembly technology with new
PC-based control highlights

Welcome to Motek 2019!

At the international exhibition for automation in production and assembly, Beckhoff will present new highlights of PC-based control technology that can be used to implement optimised automation concepts. The focus is on the integration of motion, robotics and vision in one control platform for the efficient control and monitoring of individual machines and complete production lines. In addition, there are exciting innovations such as the XPlanar motion revolution or the EtherCAT G high-performance fieldbus with 1 Gbit/s data transfer rate.

The Beckhoff team is looking forward to your visit to booth 8108.

XPlanar: flying magnets with six degrees of freedom

XPlanar: flying magnets with six degrees of freedom

With XPlanar, Beckhoff opens up new perspectives in assembly technology: free-floating planar movers move jerk-free and without contact at up to 4 m/s over planar tiles arranged in an arbitrary layout. Travelling magnetic fields provide for exact and highly dynamic positioning. The result: maximum freedom in product transport, maximum flexibility in positioning and optimum machine and plant design. Experience the new XPlanar at Beckhoff booth 8108!

EtherCAT G: ultimate I/O speed up to 10,000 Mbit/s

EtherCAT G: ultimate I/O speed up to 10,000 Mbit/s

Beckhoff presents EtherCAT G for use in high-performance machines and highly complex applications. As a continuation of the EtherCAT success principle, speeds of 1 Gbit/s or 10 Gbit/s are now available. The data transfer rate of 100 Mbit/s currently used by EtherCAT can thus be increased by a factor of 100. Both power steps can be regarded as system-compliant supplements to the EtherCAT technology. The branch concept enables the integration of 100 Mbit/s EtherCAT segments and reduces the lead times in large networks through the parallel processing of the segments. As the inventors of EtherCAT we are delighted to be able to present this leap in performance personally to you at our exhibition booth in hall 8.

CX7000 Embedded PC: the new entry-level class with 400 MHz processor

CX7000 Embedded PC: the new entry-level class with 400 MHz processor

With the CX7000 Embedded PC the convenient and powerful world of TwinCAT 3 is now also available for small controllers. The scalability of PC-based control technology from Beckhoff – from the mini PLC through to the many-core Industrial PC – is thus increased still further. A modern 400 MHz processor and integrated, configurable I/Os make for an optimum price-performance ratio. Experience the CX7000 in Stuttgart!

Motion, robotics and vision on a single control platform

Motion, robotics and vision on a single control platform

Tasks can easily be synchronised and the engineering simplified through the implementation of the image processing in the same environment as the PLC, motion and robotics. Delays due to communication are completely eliminated. Everything can be configured and programmed in a single tool. The machine manufacturer retains the image processing know-how.
