Open control platform


Open control platform

PLCnext Control is Phoenix Contact´s first open control platform product based on PLCnext technology. The controller combines the robustness and security of a classic PLC with the openness and flexibility of the world of smart devices. PLCnext Technology is designed to meet the challenges of Industrial IoT and simplify existing controller solutions, as automation projects can now be implemented without the limitations of proprietary systems.

As an enhancement to classical IEC 61131-compliant PLC programming, PLCnext Technology makes it possible to program controllers using high-level language, thus ensuring PLC-typical real-time performance and data consistency for high-level languages and model-based code. Multiple developers can work independently in different programming languages, using their preferred development tools. The result is significantly faster application development. Open source software and apps can also be incorporated into the system in a flexible way.

The new controller is adaptable and open to the application of future technologies. The expanded connectivity provided by open interfaces and a direct cloud connection give users more freedom of choice. In addition to its open design, PLCnext Control offers a high-performance CPU and large mass storage in a small housing.
