Transport System Creates Realistic Representations of Complete Systems

Provides collision-free motion with movers working independently or in groups

Beckhoff E Xtended Transport (xts) System

The Beckhoff transport system includes an application-specific human-machine interface (HMI) control for the visualization of dynamic product transport. The mechatronic eXtended transport (XTS) system generates matching visualizations from an existing XTS track configuration with one mouse click. The control is automatically linked with all necessary parameters for the user’s application and can directly display the current positions of all movers within the system. The solution consists of three levels and combines with other HMI controls or animated images, as required. The control can locate certain movers in complex transport systems through color highlighting, and can be used in simulations prior to building and commissioning systems.
