e-Brochure: eXtreme Fast Control Technology (XFC)

March 4, 2010
XFC technology from Beckhoff permits highly optimized control architectures and I/O response times less than or equal to 100 µs.

With XFC technology (eXtreme Fast Control Technology) Beckhoff presents a new, fast control solution: XFC is based on an optimised control and communication architecture comprising an advanced Industrial PC, ultra-fast I/O terminals with extended real-time characteristics, the EtherCAT high-speed Ethernet system, and the TwinCAT automation software. With XFC it is possible to realise I/O response times ≤ 100 μs. This technology opens up new process optimisation options for the user that were not possible in the past due to technical limitations.
