PC-based Control for Water Management PC-based Control for Water Management

Intelligent automation of water and waste water treatment systems

Beckhoff can realise open automation systems on the basis of PC-based control technology. In addition to the I/O components for recording all data points and the TwinCAT automation software, the product range comprises an integrated, scalable, modular control system: from high-performance Industrial PC as main computer for controlling sewage works to small local controllers for “intelligent external stations” that pick up and process signals directly on site.

Applications & Solutions


Solutions: The special challenge in water engineering applications is dealing with the complex requirements in terms of adaptation to different communication routes, controllers and devices.


Applications: The application reports illustrate application options for Beckhoff products and technologies in practice.

Bus Terminals

Bus Terminals: The Beckhoff Bus Terminal is an open and fieldbus-neutral I/O system consisting of electronic terminal blocks. The head of an electronic terminal block is the Bus Coupler with the interface to the fieldbus.

Scalable control technology

Scalable control technology: Beckhoff offers a scalable, modular control system that provides suitable solutions for any task in terms of computing capacity, complexity and costs.
