Product Review BECKHOFF TwinCat3 PLCs Industrial Automation that transforms almost any PC-based system into a real-time control with multiple NC, PLC, CNC and/or robotics runtime systems




Beckhoff can integrate high performance PLC Industrial Automation, motion control and robotics on a streamlined PC- and EtherCAT-based control platform. This offers the flexibility and also speed required to meet the wide ranging requirements of the packaging industry. With the launch or PC-based control technology in 1986, Beckhoff created a global standard for automation.

The Windows Control and Automation Technology (TwinCAT) automation is the suit PLC Industrial Automation forms to the core of the control system. The TwinCAT software system transforms almost any PC-based system into a real-time control with multiple NC, PLC, CNC and/or robotics runtime systems. Then, the TwinCAT 3 is the further systematic development of TwinCAT 2 with overall redefined automation technology.

TwinCAT 3 is divided into several components that enable the configuration, programming and debugging of applications. The TwinCAT 3 runtime consists of further components that are the basic components and functions. The basic components can be extended by functions. Basic components that build on each other and classification of the functions.


PLC Industrial Automation Beckhoff ‘s TwinCAT PLC TC1200 (TC3 PLC)

PLC Industrial Automation TwinCAT is deal with one or more PLCs with the international standard IEC 61131-3 3rd edition on one CPU. The software can run perfectly on Windows XP, Windows 7/8 and Windows CE. All programming languages described in the standard can be used for programming. The blocks of the type PROGRAM can be linked with real-time tasks. Various convenient debugging options facilitate fault-finding and commissioning. Program modifications can be carried out at any times and in any size online, i.e. when the PLC is running. All variables are available symbolically by ADS and can be read and written in appropriate clients.


PLC Industrial Automation TwinCAT  TC1210  (TC3 PLC/C++)

The software of PLC Industrial Automation is the extension of the TwinCAT PLC TC1200 with the addition of C++ functionalities including online connection to PLC/C++ runtime system in the local network or worldwide through TCP/IP or via fieldbus.  It can also used to online monitoring of variables in variable list, watching windows and editors without setting break points. The targeted system of the software is only Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8.


TwinCAT PLC Industrial Automation  TC1220 (TC3 PLC/C++/MATLAB®/Simulinks®)

This is the extension of the TwinCAT PLC/C++ TC1210 that gives users the possibility to execute modules generated in MATLAB®/Simulink® including multiple instancing of modules, online access to all parameters, and it contains the TwinCAT 3 PLC and C++ runtime.


TwinCAT PLC Industrial Automation  TC1250 (TC3 PLC/NC PTP 10)

This is the extension of the TwinCAT PLC TC1200 by the possibility to realise point-to-point movements in software. It includes standard axis functions such as start/stop/reset/reference, velocity override, master/slave couplings, electronic gearbox, online distance compensation Programming is carried out via PLCopen-compliant IEC 61131-3 function blocks.


TwinCAT PLC Industrial Automation TC1260 (TC3 PLC/NC PTP 10/NC)

Extension of the TwinCAT PLC/NC PTP 10 by the possibility to realise movements with up to three interpolating and up to five auxiliary axes. Various axis types with various fieldbus interfaces are supported. It support up to maximum 3 path axes and up to 5 auxiliary axes per group, 1 group per channel with maximum 31 channels.


TwinCAT PLC Industrial Automation TC1270 (TC3 PLC/NC PTP 10, NC I, CNC)

This is the extension of the TwinCAT PLC/NC PTP 10 by the possibility to realise an interpolation with up to 32 simultaneously interpolating axes. The number of axes and/or the number of channels can be adapted to the requirements of the application via the option packages. The axes and channels are configured in TwinCAT Engineering.


Conclusion

BECKHOFF TwinCat3 PLCs Industrial Automation centralized PC-based control systems, and ever-more connected devices via industrial Ethernet that transforms almost any PC-based system into a real-time control with multiple NC, PLC, CNC and/or robotics runtime systems. It was supported by program modifications that can be carried out at any times and in any size online, i.e. when the PLC is running
