The Beckhoff Automation product range covers industrial PCs, I/O and fieldbus components, drive technology, and automation software that can be used as separate components or integrated into a complete and seamless control system.

As the world leader in PC-based control systems, Beckhoff Automation enables companies to take advantage of the step change in universal, open control, and automation solutions.

The Beckhoff® TwinCAT® software system turns almost any compatible PC into a real-time controller with a multi-PLC system, NC axis control, programming environment, and operating station. TwinCAT replaces conventional PLC and NC/CNC controllers as well as operating devices with open, compatible PC hardware, programming and run-time systems, and connection to all common fieldbuses.

The integration of MATLAB® and Simulink® enables execution of TwinCAT modules that were generated as models in the Simulink simulation environment. The chosen interfacing type displays the parameters and variables in the graphic interface of TwinCAT 3 and enables viewing and modification in the real-time environment at runtime.


The Cambridge Science Centre exists to:

  • Spark the scientific curiosity within every child
  • Ignite an enduring passion for experimentation and discovery
  • Fuel self-belief in those who doubt their own potential
  • Illuminate pathways into STEM education and careers

We believe early experiences of scientific experimentation and discovery should be accessible, tangible, enjoyable, and fascinating; as much rooted in simple fun and wonder as they are in effective educational principles.

We want children to explore their own potential, to dare to wonder where studying STEM subjects could lead them and who they may become, and whether they wish to go from pupil to professor or from dreamer to pioneer.

MathWorks is a principal member of our Executive Council and provides vital support for our activities in several ways, including employee volunteering days.
