EtherCAT – ultra high-speed communication: Outstanding performance, flexible topology and simple configuration characterise EtherCAT, the real-time Ethernet technology.
Safety: The integrated safety solution from the I/Os to the drives.
XFC | eXtreme Fast Control Technology: XFC, the fast control solution, is based on an optimised control and communication architecture that is capable of I/O response times < 100 μs.
EtherCAT Terminals: The EtherCAT Terminal system is a modular I/O system consisting of electronic terminal blocks. The EtherCAT protocol remains fully intact down to the individual terminal.
EtherCAT Box: With the EtherCAT Box modules Beckhoff offers an EtherCAT I/O system in IP 67 protection. This way, the high performance of EtherCAT is available for harsh environments.
EtherCAT drives: The Servo Drives of the AX5000 series are optimised for highly dynamic positioning tasks.
EtherCAT master: The TwinCAT software suite integrates a powerful EtherCAT master and supports all EtherCAT features.
EtherCAT development products: The EtherCAT development products allow the simple and inexpensive integration of the EtherCAT technology into proprietary products.
