"A major draw of PC-based control was – and continues to be – the ability to integrate third-party technologies on one platform. I was blown away by the technology and the service from Beckhoff Canada, and a complete solution cost less than just the HMI and controller hardware from our legacy PLC vendor.”

"While the automation technologies from Beckhoff are high performing and very reliable, the company’s support is also very helpful and responsive. All in all, the move to EtherCAT and PC-based automation has proven to be an excellent decision for us and our customers."
