PC-based control as an integrated solution for automation and process technology

With the introduction of specific solutions for the process technology market, Beckhoff is not merely introducing new components, but bringing together two automation concepts that for decades developed separately, side-by-side. While traditional PLC-based systems were optimized predominantly for short cycle times as a replacement for complex relay technology in machine controls, DCS (Distributed Control Systems) for classic PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) closed-loop control focused mostly on scalability and system integration.
