The next step toward Industry 4.0 is PC-based control
In the movement toward Industry 4.0, PC-based control technology from Beckhoff Automation provides the ideal toolbox to implement the leading automation concepts of our time. These concepts include the Internet of Things, cloud computing, centralized PC-based control systems, and ever-more connected devices via industrial Ethernet and OPC UA. Many users are already integrating Beckhoff controllers into their production networks, enabling them to communicate with databases, perform remote maintenance over the Internet, or request cloud-based services.
TwinCAT, Beckhoff’s PC-based control software, also permits the secure integration of a wide range of connected devices into the control system such as: smartphones, tablets, and wearable technologies in the form of smart watches and data glasses. Open industrial Ethernet technology in the form of EtherCAT and “vendor neutral” solutions via OPC UA are available from Beckhoff to ensure data security without restricting connectivity. With the Power of One controls philosophy from Beckhoff (one PC-based controller, one software platform, and one network), leading manufacturers and packaging machine builders can make great strides toward establishing meaningful Industry 4.0 practices while ensuring lean automation designs and streamlined system architectures.
