Beckhoff can support the requirements of any cloud-connected operation to gather and store process data, integrate condition monitoring or implement track and trace functions in machinery. With TwinCAT IoT and TwinCAT Analytics, machines in any pharmaceutical, biotech or medical device factory directly benefit from Industrie 4.0 and IoT applications. Engineering efficiency is greatly increased because the software packages share the universal platform as all other machine programming tools from Beckhoff, including PLC, motion control, safety, HMI, robotics/kinematics and much more.
With TwinCAT HMI software, Beckhoff has ushered in the next generation of HMIs for all kinds of screens, from industrial displays to mobile devices. Instead of using proprietary systems for engineering and communications, Beckhoff relies on IT standards such as Visual Studio® for engineering, HTML5 for design and TLS for secure communications. The user interface runs on any HTML5-enabled browser, regardless of operating system, resolution or display type.
