Controller - RFC 4072R

High-availability PLCnext controller with redundancy functionality

Product Details

High-availability PLCnext controller for PROFINET networks with S2 system redundancy functionality.
When it comes to high-availability, distributed, and modular automation, PLCnext controllers with IEC 61131 control intelligence, redundancy technology, and network connection are the ideal solution. Thanks to the integrated FO-based redundancy function, you can reduce system downtimes, work cost-effectively, and also avoid potential hazards. Virtual IP technology enables the easy and convenient connection of SCADA systems. The integrated OPC UA server/client function enables a cascaded topology of redundancy levels.
