Beckhoff implements open automation systems based on PC-based control technology.
Founded in 1980 and now a world leader in automation, Beckhoff owes its success to its continuous development of innovative products and solutions using PC-based control technology. Many automation technology standards that are taken for granted today were conceptualised by Beckhoff at an early stage and successfully introduced to the market.
A genuinely holistic approach to Industry 4.0 requires horizontal integration across company boundaries, vertical integration through networked production systems, and integrated engineering throughout the product lifecycle. PC-control offers the right solution for all this, flexibly adapting to varying application requirements. Intelligence can be arranged in a hierarchically modular fashion under the central controller, but also be decentralised.
Beckhoff’s solutions include industrial PCs, I/O and fieldbus components, drive technology and automation software.
