In order to provide an array of small, flexible PLCs, Beckhoff Automation has added new models to its Ethernet TCP/IP controller family.
Beckhoff’s BC9000 and BX9000 series Ethernet PLCs for the Bus Terminal I/O system are now complemented with the new BC9120, BC9020 and BC9050 variants. The BC controllers include a direct connection to Beckhoff I/O terminals and can be operated as a stand-alone PLC or as decentralized intelligence in an Ethernet network. All Beckhoff Ethernet controllers have implemented the Modbus TCP, ADS/TCP, ADS/UDP, BootP, DHCP, SNTP and SMTP protocols.
