B&R at Drives and Controls 2014Two main topics are on the B&R agenda this year are maximising scalability and minimising response time. With Scalability+, B&R is establishing a new philosophy for scalability. This new approach opens up entirely new dimensions for machine builders, making it possible to perfectly tailor an automation solution directly to the needs of a specific machine. It allows you to select a hardware and software solution that best fits your automation needs - all without being forced to enter into any kind of commitment. If it becomes obvious during development that the components or solutions need to be scaled up or down, this can be done at any time without losing a single bit of the work that has already been done. All of this makes it possible for machine manufacturers to perfectly adapt automation systems directly to the needs of the machine without having to make compromises along the way.
B&R has developed a whole new series of hardware components that further enhances the interoperability and scalability of automation systems. New compact controllers with integrated I/O have been added to the extremely successful X20 series of controllers. The proven Power Panel product series is also being upgraded to include several new touch screen systems - with and without controller functionality - that will also be given their UK launch at Drives & Controls.
This year's Drives & Controls is also the perfect venue for B&R UK to unveil reACTION - innovative technology that reduces cycle times to unprecedented levels. This new approach allows extremely time-critical sub-processes to be implemented using standard hardware - all within the requirements of IEC 61131- while reducing not just the load on the controller, but overall costs as well. B&R will also be introducing the UK to the latest version of its process control system - APROL R 4.0 - including many new features.
