Beckhoff will present its open PC-based control technology for all vertical process industry markets. PC-based control enables the user to implement holistic solutions for barrier-free system integration through to Zone 0/20 with integrated communication capabilities from the sensor to the cloud. With PC-based control, even distributed systems can be connected with little effort while enabling access to centralised and therefore highly efficient analysis and process control capabilities. Because of its interoperability, openness and integrated support of cloud-based services, the Beckhoff automation system is also ideal for implementing connectivity in production environments in line with current Industrie 4.0 and Internet-of-Things concepts. The user benefits across the board – from horizontal integration, even beyond enterprise boundaries, and vertical integration with connected production systems to consistent engineering over the entire equipment life span. In addition to standard automation components, a broad portfolio of products for use in hazardous areas is available.
