PLCnext Control - PLC for PLCnext Technology

PLCnext Control devices for high-level languages and IEC 61131-3

PLCs for the open PLCnext Technology ecosystem are available in the form of PLCnext Control devices. They are designed for programming with high-level languages, such as C/C++, C# or MATLAB® Simulink®, as well as classic IEC 61131-3 languages. You can therefore implement automation projects without the limitations of proprietary systems.

The PLCs can be extended with modules for the left side and the Axioline and Inline IP20 I/O systems. Benefit from the advantages of cloud integration or download software from the PLCnext Store onto your controller. Security is based on a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) where user certificates can also be stored.

Safe and high-performance PLCnext Control devices

Safe and redundant high-performance controllers

RFC high-performance controllers (Remote Field Controllers) allow you to implement automation applications with special standards for safety or availability, for example. For applications with PLCnext Technology requiring a high safety level, choose our safety controller up to SIL 3 to be on the safe side. Redundant control systems help you reduce downtimes, work cost-effectively, and also avoid potential dangers, such as in tunnels or at airports.

Axiocontrol controllers are designed for maximum performance, easy handling, and use in harsh industrial environments. Their particularly robust housing and excellent EMC properties provide the basis for this.

Together with the Axioline F I/O system from Phoenix Contact, Axiocontrol offers maximum speed thanks to direct bus connection.

Engineering software for automation

To keep pace with the ever-growing demands placed on speed and flexibility in production, software has become a key factor in success in this age of digitalization. Our interconnected software tools reduce your overall engineering effort and the intuitive user interfaces save time.

PLCnext Engineer is the software platform for configuration, programming in accordance with IEC 61131-3, visualization, and diagnostics for PLCnext Technology. In addition, this software also allows you to easily connect high-level language code to the standard application. PLCnext Engineer is the user-friendly engineering solution for your PLCnext Control devices.

For all conventional controllers from Phoenix Contact, we offer PC Worx, our programming software in accordance with IEC 61131-3, which allows the quick and consistent implementation of complex automation concepts. Tools for the configuration of I/O stations as well as for visualization and safe programming also provide the ideal combination of hardware and software.

Apps for PLCnext Control in the PLCnext Store

Software applications (apps) for industrial applications in the field of automation technology are available for download from the PLCnext Store. They allow you to add more technical functions to PLCnext Control devices easily and directly. Accelerate your application development process and use all-in-one apps, without needing any additional programming knowledge.

Ready-to-use: This means that, thanks to the PLCnext Store, a PLCnext Control device can, for example, be transformed into a solar park PLC easily and without programming. Phoenix Contact already provides numerous software libraries for PLCnext Engineer. They are available to you as apps in the PLCnext Store for easy downloading. Using a development app (dev app), PLCnext Technology can be easily extended with your preferred runtime environment. This allows you to also use industry-specific programming languages such as CODESYS, Java, Python, and S5 (Siemens runtime environment).
