Beckhoff Automation provides advanced, open automation products based upon proven industrial technologies. Solar cell manufacturers, machine builders and solar power plants can implement high performance Beckhoff control systems more efficiently and at a lower overall cost than traditional PLC and motion control systems. Beckhoff has been a long-time proponent of open controls architectures, full system interoperability, advanced remote connectivity and lean automation solutions. As more businesses in the solar industries are calling for these types of cost-effective solutions, Beckhoff is well positioned today to support them. Beckhoff sales and service are handled directly, with no intermediaries involved for exceptional customer service and consultation.
Beckhoff’s product range includes PC-based control, Industrial PCs, Embedded PCs, programmable automation controllers (PACs), PLCs, operator interfaces, EtherCAT® (next generation Ethernet fieldbus technology), I/O compatible with over 15 different fieldbuses, servo drives and motors.
Beckhoff is also advancing leading edge automation solutions that deliver high performance at a low cost. This includes Scientific Automation, which merges automation, PLC and motion control with advanced condition monitoring and high precision measurement technologies. Today this can be handled all on one powerful, PC-based automation controller and cost-effective EtherCAT Terminals, eliminating the need for many expensive “black boxes.” Another advanced solution from Beckhoff is eXtreme Fast Control Technology (XFC), which efficiently brings automation performance to new heights, with greatly increased system precision and I/O response times < 100 μs.
