Beckhoff meets widely differing requirements in industrial measurement technology with different device lines and system components. Both slow procedures at intervals of one second and dynamic procedures in the kHz range have to be measured in process sequences and testing tasks. The signals to be measured also differ depending on the application: from voltage and current to vibration and force measurements, among others. The Beckhoff measurement technology system is perfectly suited for a wide range of these tasks. Conceived as an IP 20 system, it reads in the sensor signals from its location in the control cabinet. Ideally placed as a supplement to already existing EtherCAT-based Beckhoff terminal systems, the ELM modules measure processcritical measuring channels for which the standard analog technology of the EL/KL systems – with a measuring accuracy of 0.3% or a measuring rate of 1 kSps – is inadequate.
