Visitors to HANNOVER MESSE can experience components, systems and the latest technology highlights in the five technology forums hosted by Beckhoff Automation GmbH & Co. KG. By systematically bundling control intelligence in software, PC-based control technology combines all the functions such as PLC, motion control and IoT in a single system. Besides the integration of image processing, high-precision measuring technology and cloud services into the central controller, this year's trade fair stand also focuses on innovative hardware such as the AMP8000 servo drive.
The decentralized AMP8000 servo drive system opens up new opportunities for modular machine concepts. Relocating the servo drive including the power electronics directly into the servomotor means the control cabinet only needs to house a single coupling module to power multiple servo drives with a single cable via a distribution module. Visitors to this year’s HANNOVER MESSE can see for themselves just how much they can save in materials, space, money and installation work.
