Outstanding performance, flexible topology and simple configuration characterize EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology), the
real-time Ethernet technology from Beckhoff.
The continuation of the successful EtherCAT technology moves the available data rates up to 1 Gbit/s and 10 Gbit/s.
The one cable solution – One step closer to automation without control cabinets.
XFC is based on an optimized control and communication architecture to realize I/O response times ≤ 100 μs.
With the aid of the TwinSAFE SC technology (TwinSAFE Single Channel) it is possible to make use of analog standard signals for safety tasks
in any network or fieldbus.
Extended environmental conditions
The Beckhoff I/O system contains selected products with increased resistance to temperature, weathering and mechanical stress.
From pure network condition monitoring, power measurement or process control to high-end power monitoring, energy management in the machine
environment and in the energy industry has many different requirements.
Scientific Automation is the integration of automation software with findings from engineering science.
