July 12, 2018 – Beckhoff Automation has introduced the TwinCAT 3 Building Automation software platform to modernize intelligent building systems. TwinCAT 3 Building Automation meshes with existing TwinCAT 3 modules for HMI and IoT, along with Analytics and Scope, and bundles functions for building automation into one universal tool.
With TwinCAT 3 Building Automation, users can now utilize the TwinCAT 3 automation platform for building control: full Visual Studio integration, an integrated engineering environment, eight programming languages with interacting modules in a single runtime, reusability of source code and scalability to suit different controller performance levels. The meshing of TwinCAT 3 Building Automation with the numerous software modules available in TwinCAT 3 provides system integrators with a toolbox that covers all functions and systems found in building automation.
By adding TwinCAT HMI software, users can create customized operator interfaces. With TwinCAT IoT, PC-based controllers can outsource the functions of individual building automation components to the cloud or use cloud services. The analysis of cloud-based building data can also be integrated directly in PC-based controllers using TwinCAT Analytics. This offers data transparency, predictive maintenance and security against potential failures. As a big data oscilloscope integrated in the building controller, TwinCAT Scope facilitates clear visualization of data quantities and increases data transparency through comparison and evaluation of measured values.
