XFC eXtreme Fast Control Technology

Higher production efficiency with fast control solution
With XFC technology (eXtreme Fast Control Technology) Beckhoff presents a fast control solution: XFC is based on an optimized 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 realize I/O response times < 100 μs. This technology opens up new process optimization options for the user that were not possible in the past due to technical limitations.
Photoelectric BOS 21M ADCAP
Configurable multi-functional sensor

The BOS 21M ADCAP stands for ADvanced CAPabilities which this sensor definitely demonstrates with its programmable functionality.
Configuration of this multi-function sensor is accomplished via IO-Link. One sensor can be configured as background suppression, diffuse, retroreflective or through-beam and these modes can be changed on the fly to meet the demands of flexible manufacturing processes or support recipe and format changes in production. One part number simplifies design of equipment regardless of sensor application required. For a plant, one part number can be used for many applications, condensing spare part inventories.
Not only can sensing modes be configured, the sensor has the ability to provide simple distributed logic such as counting parts, speed monitoring, and controlling the outputs accordingly. With IO-Link, simple installation and easy controls integration translates to cost savings .
