The new class of Control Performance
With XFC technology (eXtreme Fast Control Technology) Beckhoff presents a new, fast control solution: XFC is based on an optimised control and communication architecture comprising an advanced Industrial PC, ultra-fast I/O terminals with extended real-time characteristics, the EtherCAT high-speed Ethernet system, and the TwinCAT automation software. With XFC it is possible to realise I/O response times < 100 μs. This technology opens up new process optimisation options for the user that were not possible in the past due to technical limitations.
The video explains the XFC technology and their advantages basing on an application example of a tea bag packaging machine.
