    The robust design of Beckhoff Control Panels makes them ideally suited for harsh industrial environments.The modular Control Panel series encompasses a wide range of variants, including standard displays with touchscreens and complete CNC control panels for machine tools. The combination of Control Panels,Industrial PCs and TwinCAT automation software is ideal for PC-based CNC control systems.

    The new PC-based control concept used at MDC Max Daetwyler AG, a Swiss company producing printingplates for gravure and flexographic printing, has far-reaching strategic significance. As a result of this upgrade, machine performance has increased significantly and development, maintenance and staff training have become much simpler.

    The Motion Control Bus Terminals of the versatile I/O system from Beckhoff offer a cost-effective alternative to more sophisticated drive systems. They enable control of stepper motors, DC motors or hydraulic valves, for example. The motors or valves can easily be integrated into the control system viaTwinCAT automation software.

  • The market is calling for open technologies and rightly so! After all, no-one wants to be fully dependent on a particularsupplier. Accordingly, all new technologies claim to be open. Naturally, users can and should verify the openness of technologies based oncommon criteria. These criteria include free access to specifications, standardization, interoperability, vendor diversity and costs for utilizationand implementation of the technology.

    Ultimately, the crucial aspect is the trust one has in the company acting as the

    driving force behind the technology. If this company has a tradition of openness,

    technology from this company deserves a certain level of trust.

    It is quite amusing to observe how companies who traditionally offered closed

    system solutions are currently trying to portray themselves as particularly open.

    Until recently, some of these companies didnt support any open fieldbus systems

    at all (or perhaps only a single system), while they now see themselves as cham-

    pions of open solutions, as if they had a Road to Damascus experience. For one

    particular industrial Ethernet solution, the key technology is hidden in the highly

    complex optimization algorithm of the configuration tool which happens to be

    excluded from the specification and is not disclosed or made available to third-

    party manufacturers. A representative for a different technology recently told a

    baffled member of its user organization that a particular feature cannot be made

    accessible for competitive reasons. The configuration tools offered by some

    other companies only support their own devices and often have a range of un-

    documented features. Apparently, one supplier even pronounced his proprietary

    implementation, which is incompatible with the rest of the world, as version 1 of

    2 editorial

    Openness who do you trust?

  • the new standard and for the last two years has been refusing to support version

    2 (which was developed by the user organization), because it would mean com-

    petition for his devices from the partner companies. Shame on him who thinks

    evil of it! Particularly remarkable is the fact that time and again renowned sup-

    pliers will enter into strategic partnerships with such companies and start wav-

    ing their banners. There are several examples of arch-enemies from the fieldbus

    wars suddenly becoming partners making friendly overtures it will be interest-

    ing to see how these marriages develop.

    The name Beckhoff has been regarded as the quintessence of open control engi-

    neering for many years. Beckhoff has been using PC-based controllers since 1986,

    when others were still bogged down in court cases trying to deny competitors ac-

    cess to their backplane buses. TwinCAT, the control software from Beckhoff, runs

    on all standard PCs, not just on Beckhoff devices (which incidentally do not lose

    their warranty simply because a card from another supplier is inserted). TwinCAT

    is programmed in the languages of the IEC 61131-3 standard, not in a proprietary

    dialect. Naturally, TwinCAT also features all common, open software
