AV Stumpfl integrates Beckhoff automation into show control offering

PC-based automation components from Beckhoff will be integrated into AV Stumpfl’s show control system, Pixera control.

Beckhoff implements open automation systems using PC-based control technology. The main areas that its product range covers are industrial PCs, I/O and fieldbus components, drive technology, and automation software.

The recently released Pixera control is a distributed, software-based integration and control framework that supports the hosting of new functionalities within the Pixera media server system and controls all aspects of an extended project environment. Anything users create and integrate can be distributed across their connected systems and shares itself.

Specialist planners and system integrators can freely configure and create connections between AV and media technologies with Pixera control.

The first step in the partnership between Beckhoff and AV Stumpfl sees four software-based module connections added to Pixera control, which allow for a simple integration of digital, analogue, serial, and DMX-based Beckhoff hardware-modules.

The module integration is based on the Beckhoff ADS (automation device specification) interface. Inputs for effects like light switches or photoelectric barriers, or analogue inputs like control dials and encoders, as well as outputs for motors or switching relays, can be implemented within existing systems this way.

AV Stumpfl will exhibit at the ISE 2022 trade show taking place February 1 to 4 in Barcelona in Hall 3 on stand B600. Beckhoff will be found in Hall 4, booth N700.
