Beckhoff Automation was established in 1980 and the first PC-basedmachine controller was delivered by Beckhoff just six years later. Itwas a ‘simple’ controller for a double miter saw, which encompassedsingle-axis positioning control with a few machine sequence functions.The saw was a well-known standard machine, which became a directsales success for the machine manufacturer due to the innovativePC Control technology. The combination of IT functions and automa-tion technology (AT) in a controller was and isstill a revolution. The benefits resulting from thisrevolution were recognized even at the begin-ning and received enthusiastically by machinemanufacturers and users. For example, datacould be read directly into the machine control-ler using standard IT media (floppy disks). In1986, this represented significant progress inproductivity.Beckhoff expanded the company’s PC Controlconcept consistently and quickly in the yearsthat followed: Multi-axis NC functions anda complete, integrated software PLC enabledthe PC-based Control of highly complex ma-chines and plants. It should be mentioned herethat Beckhoff has advanced this technology in close cooperationwith many mid-sized customers, who were open to the new technol-ogy concepts and certainly benefited from them. These ambitiouscompanies have made an important historical contribution to thedevelopment of PC Control.In 1990, PC Control technology had matured to the extent thatBeckhoff presented the concept to the wider public for the first timeat Hanover Fair. The professional world was surprised, skeptical andimpressed. The high performance and value for a low cost quicklyconvinced many customers, however. Starting with this HanoverFair, PC Control has become generally accepted worldwide as astandard technology in automation and has enabled the Beckhoff workforce to grow from 40 employees at that time to 1650 peopleworldwide today.There have been no fundamental changes to this successful conceptsince then: the abstraction of the control function from the devicehardware and the consistent use of ‘mainstream’ IT technologiesconverging with the principles of automation technology lead, onthe one hand, to continuously improving performance and functional-ity and, on the other, to cost reductions. The PC Control principle isvery simple: a powerful Industrial PC, an equally high-performancefieldbus to which peripheral devices for sensor and actuatorsystems are connected and control software with real-time capabilityfor motion and logic – nothing more is required.Of course, Beckhoff has developed further important products overthe last 25 years that could be considered milestones, since they eachrepresent a smaller or larger revolution and have contributed in nosmall way to the current state of PC-based automation. I would liketo mention here:| 1989: Lightbus fibre optic fieldbus for fast I/O coupling| 1995: Bus Terminals fine granular I/Os| 1996: TwinCAT standard real-time automation softwarerunning on Windows| 2003: EtherCAT real-time Ethernet for automation| 2005: TwinSAFE functional safety in non-safe environments| 2006: Scientific Automation measuring technology andengineering science as a control component| 2008: XFC eXtreme Fast Control for efficient machinesand plants| 2010: TwinCAT 3 – engineering tool for object-oriented andmodular automation| 2011: CCAT – C for Control Automation Technology – automationbased on high-level languagesWhen we at Beckhoff want to describe the variety of demandsplaced on automation, we say: “The world is big and colorful” – andwe are proud of the fact that our PC Control technology has foundthe widest use in this big, colorful and also beautiful world: in machineconstruction and plant engineering, in measurement and testingtechnology, in wind turbines and photovoltaic manufacturing, in of-fice buildings and private houses, in stage technology and on luxuryyachts, in medical technology and in particle accelerators … PC Con-trol from Beckhoff is the basis for intelligent, powerful and reliablecontrol technology in all fields.And the revolution continues, driven by hardware and softwareadvances in IT and AT. Multi-core technologies permit the provisionof virtually unlimited computing power and new software toolsare improving engineering. All automation engineers are called on touse these increases in performance, for example, to control machines,plants and buildings with greater efficiency while using less resources,and in particular to give free rein to their imaginations and to contrib-ute to the future revolutions of the next 25 years.Automation remains exciting!Hans Beckhoff
