Beckhoff at MODEX 2018

Beckhoff Automation invites you to attend MODEX, a leading material handling trade show taking place from April 9 - 12 in the Georgia World Congress Center.

While you’re at the show, visit Beckhoff Automation in booth # 1921 and experience the company’s comprehensive line of PC-based automation solutions for distribution centers, automated warehouses and other material handling applications. Beckhoff Automation will continue to showcase new, system-integrated solutions for IIoT and Industrie 4.0 this year at MODEX.. From new equipment designs to retrofits, system-integrated hardware and software technologies are available for secure connectivity from sensor to cloud. Additional Smart Factory solutions will factor heavily in the Beckhoff booth, such as One Cable Automation via EtherCAT P, which integrates power and signal lines into a single, standard 4-wire Ethernet cable. The latest motor and drive solutions with One Cable Technology (OCT) will also be shown with demos and test stands for hands-on evaluation.

Meet the smallest Industrial PC from Beckhoff: the C6015.

Meet the smallest Industrial PC from Beckhoff: the C6015

Beckhoff has changed the game yet again with another redefinition of the “compact Industrial PC”. With minimized dimensions of just 82 x 82 x 40 mm and flexible installation options, the award-winning C6015 opens up new fields of application for control in material handling applications. Equipped with an integrated Intel® Atom™ CPU with up to four cores, the fanless device provides high performance reserves.

  • extreme space-savings
  • high performance at low cost
  • Intel® Atom™ CPU with up to 4 cores with 1.91 GHz
  • flexible installation options
  • wide operating temperature range


EtherCAT P can reduce cabling and connectors up to 50%

EtherCAT P integrates the EtherCAT communication as well as the system and peripheral voltage in one cable and enables power supply forwarding directly via the devices. The combination of high EtherCAT performance and flexible EtherCAT topology make the single-cable solution the optimum bus system for sensors, actuators and measurement technology: Material and assembly costs are reduced and the mounting space is minimized in drag chains, control cabinets and machinery.

Scalable drive technology for any application

All demands for motion control in material handling applications are perfectly covered with highly scalable drive solutions from Beckhoff. The AM8000 series servomotors are available in six sizes. Installation time and cabling/connector costs are reduced through the use of One Cable Technology (OCT). Servo, stepper and DC motors can be directly integrated into Beckhoff I/O system by using compact drive technology terminals, permitting the realization of motion control systems that are as compact as they are cost-effective.
