PC-based control integrates measurement and testing technology into the control system and secures your competitive edge
Nowadays, efficiency, flexibility and transparency are key drivers of sustainable competitiveness. The focus is very different, depending on the industry and application: While customers opt for maximum efficiency and reliability with low energy and maintenance costs where production machines are concerned, test bench providers are successful when they offer maximum flexibility with interfaces, sensors and actuators. Flexible transport systems, image recognition and machine learning are important building blocks in machine construction. Modern test benches, on the other hand, require dynamic, integrated control systems and precise, synchronous and calibrated measured data. Operators of machines and plants want to expand their investments in a sustainable manner and to extend them with new drive and safety technologies, Condition Monitoring for new maintenance concepts or energy measurement as a basis for consumption optimization and optimized control strategies.
As a technology provider, Beckhoff provides you with modern tools that give you the decisive edge in product development and time-to-market. The focus is on PC-based control technology, combined with high-quality measurement, drive and safety technology.
