PLSN Staff • International News • January 29, 2020

AMSTERDAM – Beckhoff Automation will be on the floor at ISE on February  11-14, at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Center. Take a look at some of the equipment and software they will be sharing at the upcoming show.

More details from Beckhoff (www.beckhoffautomation.com/usa):

Direct connection of Q-SYS™ devices via QRC: with PC-based control

The open control technology from Beckhoff creates new opportunities in AV system integration. Through support for the QRC protocol, Q-SYS™ devices can be remotely controlled directly from the Beckhoff PLC. Conversely, Q-SYS™ devices can send information to the Beckhoff TwinCAT system.

The QRC protocol opens up new possibilities in AV system integration.

Smart engineering directly in the cloud: TwinCAT Cloud Engineering

With TwinCAT Cloud Engineering, Beckhoff is for the first time enabling the instantiation and use of existing TwinCAT engineering and runtime products directly in the cloud. Access is provided via the Beckhoff website, which means that no additional software components are required apart from a web browser. AV and media technology users benefit from all advantages of the TwinCAT software architecture, secure connection to the existing hardware, simplified collaboration and diverse user models.

 

With TwinCAT Cloud Engineering, even globally distributed control systems in Industrie 4.0 environments are easy to operate and maintain remotely.

Performance boost: Industrial PCs with new processor generations

At ISE, Beckhoff is presenting several Industrial PC (IPC) series that are equipped with three new Intel® processor generations. The new CPUs are available for Embedded PCs, control cabinet and Panel PCs as well as the ultra-compact IPC and 19-inch slide-in PC series. Moreover, the introduction of the fanless, ultra-compact C6025 IPC with Intel® Core™ i U computing power further expands the variety of the Beckhoff IPC performance range.

 

The new Beckhoff C6025 (center) adds a fanless, Intel® Core™ i device to the C60xx series of advanced, Industrial PCs that are compact and easy to install.

TwinCAT Analytics: One-Click Dashboard

TwinCAT Analytics’ automated functionality for converting analysis configurations into executable PLC code now also includes dashboard generation. With One-Click Dashboard, all it takes for users is a simple mouse click to generate an entire HTML5-based analytics dashboard based on the PLC code and load it into a selected Analytics Runtime container. This enables substantial time savings in engineering processes. Individual user specifications can be taken into account during automatic dashboard generation. If required, the corresponding TwinCAT 3 HMI project can also be freely modified after generation.

 

The TwinCAT Analytics One-Click Dashboard saves valuable time during the engineering process.

Media and control technology: combined on a single platform

The PC-based control solutions from Beckhoff enable you to run any application for building and media technology on a centralized control platform: from audio and video control through integrated building automation and digital signage to operating and monitoring. Your possible applications are almost unlimited – whether in control centers, commercial or public buildings, conference centers, lecture halls, entertainment parks or stadiums. Users benefit from significantly reduced hardware and software costs, and integrated cloud connectivity. Beckhoff provides the key components for these achievements: they are highly scalable, an exact match to your requirements and based on comprehensive expertise in stage and show technology as well as building automation.
