How can PC-based control help you create genuine added value in Industrie 4.0 and IoT applications? Beckhoff will answer this question at Hannover Messe 2017: On the one hand with all basic technologies and components available for PC-based control systems – from PLC to robotics through to measurement technology. And on the other hand with the comprehensive product portfolio designed for “Integrated Industry” that Beckhoff will highlight in its own Industrie 4.0 theme park. Directly integrate Industrie 4.0 and IoT applications into the higher-level control system. Tap into the benefits of increased production efficiency as well as machine and system optimization through advanced functionality.
