In combination with the Motion Control solutions offered by the TwinCAT automation software, Beckhoff Drive Technology represents an advanced and complete drive system. PC-based control technology from Beckhoff is ideally suited for single and multiple axis positioning tasks with highly dynamic requirements. The AX5000 and AX8000 Servo Drive series with high-performance EtherCAT system communication offer maximum performance and dynamics.
TwinCAT offers extensive NC and CNC functionalities. Corresponding PLC libraries and engineering tools complete the software solution.
The open control technology of Beckhoff is consistently continued into the drive unit. Fieldbus standards such as EtherCAT, Ethernet, PROFIBUS, CANopen, DeviceNet, SERCOS interface or Lightbus enable the drives to be integrated into complex systems.
