Beckhoff at Meorga 2018

Beckhoff will present its integrated PC- and EtherCAT-based control solution at the specialised trade show for measurement, control and regulation technology, which is scheduled to take place on 10 October in Bochum. With the integration of PLC, motion control, HMI, process and measurement technology as well as IoT applications, PC-based control opens up great optimisation potential in terms of efficiency, accuracy and costs. Beckhoff also seamlessly integrates process technology into the overall control system by supporting protocols and interfaces specific to process technology as well as a comprehensive product range for hazardous areas. With the high-precision, fast and robust EtherCAT measurement technology modules, EtherCAT as the measurement technology bus system and the TwinCAT software solutions, a complete measurement chain that ranges from data acquisition to analysis in the cloud is available.

High-end measurement technology: extremely accurate, fast and robust

  • EtherCAT measurement modules can be directly integrated into the modular EtherCAT Terminal system
  • fast: sampling rates of up to 50,000 samples/s
  • precision timing: exact synchronisation in < 1 μs
  • precision values: measurement accuracy of 100 ppm at 23 °C
  • Input circuits: voltage 20 mV...60 V, current 20 mA, IEPE, DMS, RTD/TC
  • integrated Beckhoff measurement chain: from data acquisition to analysis in the cloud
