Introducing enhanced programmability and functionality for AC drives and control systems, thanks to innovative solutions jointly developed by Danfoss Drives and Beckhoff Automation. System integrators and OEMs can now profit from new time and material savings opportunities, enabled by deep integration of our respective products.
Eliminate excess – to save time and effort
Machine builders and integrators can now commission and program their Danfoss AC drives faster and more simply, directly through TwinCAT automation software. No need to work in multiple platforms. Now just one tool does it all, thanks to mutual plug-and-play integration between the Beckhoff TwinCAT software platform and Danfoss AC drives.
Flexibility – choose the best components for optimal performance
System openness is important to system integrators and machine builders, who should always be able to choose optimal components to integrate when creating their own solutions: diverse motor technologies, fieldbuses and automation systems. Danfoss Drives is proud to offer the highest level of freedom of choice and easy integration of any AC drives manufacturer. The Beckhoff platform support via TwinCAT integration is the newest addition to our comprehensive and open offerings in system compatibility.
Equipped for tomorrow
The need for sustainability whilst maintaining competitiveness is intensifying. The Beckhoff-Danfoss collaboration brings innovation to our customers so that they can continue to realize optimal efficiency gains whilst development is rapid. Constant innovation, elimination of waste, and higher efficiency translate directly into energy saving and care for our environment.
