Beckhoff at OTC 2018

Multitasking automation hardware and software for pharmaceutical machines

Beckhoff Automation invites you to attend Offshore Technology Conference 2018 taking place April 30 – May 3 at NRG Park in Houston, TX.

Visit Beckhoff at OTC 2018 in booth #6531 and experience Beckhoff’s comprehensive line of PC-based automation solutions – including new Control Panel displays and intrinsically safe I/O solutions for use in challenging oil and gas applications that require explosion protection. In addition, cost-saving I/O solutions that connect HART and NAMUR devices to Beckhoff PC-based control architectures will also be on display.

Beckhoff will also demonstrate new advances in IoT and cloud connectivity. With a system-integrated approach to hardware and software, Beckhoff is uniquely positioned to help connect process equipment in the field to the cloud and other higher level systems for advanced measurement, condition monitoring and data analysis.

EtherCAT I/O terminals integrate HART and NAMUR devices

The EL3182 analog input terminal from Beckhoff for HART-capable field devices supplies measuring transducers located in the field and transmits their analog measuring signals electrically isolated to the automation device. With a technical measuring range of ±107 % of the nominal range, the terminal also supports commissioning with sensor values in the limit range and the evaluation according to NAMUR NE43. The EL1052 digital input terminal acquires signals from NAMUR field devices according to EN 60947-5-6. The sensors are supplied with a voltage of 8.2 V and return a diagnosable current signal.

High-end measurement technology built into PC-based control:
ELM series EtherCAT measurement modules.

The new ELM series EtherCAT measurement modules can be directly integrated into the modular EtherCAT Terminal system and connect to all manner of field devices. Robust metal housings in the ELM series offer optimized shielding and cooling for measurement applications as well as increased flexibility with regard to widely-used interfaces, such as for LEMO or BNC connectors.
