    EtherCAT G: Ultimate I/O performance for high-performance machines

    With the EtherCAT G technology extension, EtherCAT reaches the next performance level through its capability to superimpose itself on Gigabit Ethernet for particularly data-intensive applications. Compatibility with the globally established standard EtherCAT and the same familiar ease of use are both guaranteed.

    TwinCAT Vision: Programming real-time solutions in a PLC environment

    Industrial image processing has generally been kept separate from traditional control technology. This involves considerable effort in engineering and support, and renders synchronization almost impossible. Beckhoff now takes a fundamentally different path that fully integrates machine vision, both in engineering and runtime.
