Eliminate the need for purges and expensive explosion-proof enclosures to communicate to Zone 0. Beckhoff enables safe, efficient networking with our ELX (IP20) and EPX (IP67) terminals. Rated for installation in Zone 2/22, these I/O modules optimize process applications requiring safety, large signal diversity and cabling flexibility.


Harness a comprehensive software solution for automation. As an end-to-end engineering and runtime platform, TwinCAT brings together programming talent from all disciplines skilled in everything from IEC 61131-3 PLC languages to computer science standards. Secure cloud connectivity, condition monitoring and analytics integrate with NAMUR, HART and FDT/DTM to meet process needs.


Send data. Analyze results. Boost productivity. With TwinCAT IoT and the comprehensive I/O and control hardware portfolio from Beckhoff, you can enable digitalization without breaking the bank. Even in hazardous environments, our broad range of  ELX and EPX terminals ensure barrier-free communication from sensors in Zone 0 to the cloud.


Ditch those flimsy, drab plastic panels. The robust CPX series Control Panels offer a sleek, yet rugged operator interface designed specifically for operation in potentially hazardous environments. Milled from solid aluminum, these explosion-proof HMIs support options for flexible mounting or even an integrated CPU to serve as a powerful machine controller in Zone 2/22


Transform your touchscreen into a fully immersive, intuitive operator interface. TwinCAT HMI empowers engineers to use web design standards, such as HTML5, JavaScript and more, along with Websockets and HTTPS for secure communication. Beyond enhancing aesthetics, this simplifies operator training and makes it easy to view your HMI on mobile devices as desired.


No Windows? No problem. Leverage the TwinCAT/BSD alternative OS from Beckhoff, which works on our latest PC-based controllers. TwinCAT/BSD combines the TwinCAT runtime with FreeBSD, an industrially proven and reliable open-source operating system. This creates a low-footprint, high-performance option with the security of a modern UNIX-like OS.
