Beckhoff Automation announces EP7402 controller, TwinCAT/BSD alternative operating system (OS) and C6025 Industrial PC at MODEX 2020
- Beckhoff Automation
The smart distribution center solutions will include the North American debuts of the EP7402 controller for motor-driven roller (MDR) conveyors, TwinCAT/BSD alternative operating system (OS) for Beckhoff PC-based controllers and C6025 ultra-compact Industrial PC (IPC). The eXtended Transport System (XTS) will also make its MODEX debut at the Beckhoff booth (4026).
The X-410 offers the ability to log a variety of data points such as local and remote I/O, registers, tasks, and voltage. Log entries can be made at preset intervals, scheduled times, triggered by I/O changes or logic events. Users can schedule a daily log file to be sent via email or uploaded via FTP server.

The linear axis uses an H2W brushless linear motor BLDM-C08 to generate a continuous force of 26 lb [115.5 N] and a peak force of 78 lb [347 N] with a stroke length of 30 in [768 mm].
All sizes of NITRA rodless cylinders have magnetic pistons and are double-acting. The cylinders have front and rear adjustable cushions and tapped end caps for mounting.
The brushless voice coil motors provide 6.3 lbs (28.2 N) of force and peak forces of 20.0 lbs (89.9 N) at a 10% duty cycle for the X and Y axes. The Z axis linear actuator has a continuous force of 21.2 oz (5.9 N) and 67.0 oz (18.6 N) peak force.
