Reliable process data acquisition

Use data to optimize your machines and production processes

  • Decisions regarding the optimization of machines and production processes are made based on machine and system data
  • The collection and evaluation of values such as flow rates, currents, and temperatures enables predictive maintenance
  • Process data acquisition improves machine performance and reduces machine downtime

Controlling in the control cabinet

The digitalization, networking, and globalization of business and technical systems are generating new requirements for automation. Phoenix Contact therefore provides future-oriented PLCs, I/O systems, and PLC software.

Connection of sensors and actuators in the field in machine building

Signal transmission

There are many different requirements when it comes to controlling machines. While the machine controller is well protected against environmental influences in control cabinets, numerous sensors and actuators as well as their connection are installed in exposed conditions in the field. COMPLETE line provides solutions for the flexible, modular, and efficient connection of these components in the field.
