Modular Inline controller for automation applications in the fields of building technology, infrastructure, and energy technology. Equipped with two logically separated IP address interfaces each with 2 integrated Fast Ethernet ports. Configurable assignment of the Ethernet ports for the use of the spanning-tree protocol, daisy chain and redundant ring structures for maximum availability. Four LAN, two USB, and two RS-485 interfaces are integrated. The data point connections can be extended with up to 63 Inline I/O modules: digital and analog, function terminals for DALI, pulse counting, MBUS or serial interfaces.
Your advantages with control technology in accordance with IEC 61131
Communicative with integrated, freely programmable web server as well as a large
interface and protocol diversity
- Durable with the sturdy housing and EMI-resistant electronics
- High degree of flexibility and extendibility with numerous I/Os perfectly tailored to the PLC
- Global service and support as well as short response times increase system availability
Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE)
Axioline Smart Elements
The new TÜV-certified Axioline Smart Elements enable safe communication over EtherCAT (FSoE).
Axioline Smart Elements are plug-in, system-independent modules without bus communication. The individual element only supports the I/O function. Bus communication for the relevant I/O system is only realized in conjunction with a backplane, which functions similarly to an adapter.
- Eight safe digital inputs with two test pulses
- Four safe digital outputs up to 2 A
- Safe communication over EtherCAT (FSoE)
- TÜV-certified for the highest safety requirements up to SIL 3/PL e
- Significant space savings in the control cabinet with the modularly combinable I/O system
- Reduced wiring time with Push-in Technology
- Simple status signaling with LEDs
Fast and robust control technology
Axiocontrol (AXC) series 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. Furthermore, they provide increased safety with an integrated uninterruptible power supply.
Together with the Axioline Smart Elements and Axioline F I/O systems, Axiocontrol controllers provide maximum speed with a direct bus connection.
The AXC 1050 is also available with an extended temperature range for extreme conditions.
Redundant and safe PLCs with maximum performance
The high-performance PLCs in the RFC (Remote Field Controller) family have a diagnostics display that enables you to conveniently read status messages regarding the control system and fieldbus system. With the powerful processor, comprehensive automation tasks can be processed at maximum speed.
Ensure the continuous operation of your automation applications with the PROFINET redundancy PLC. The high-performance PLCs establish a redundant system automatically, thanks to AutoSync Technology.
You can use the Safety version to integrate safety functions up to SIL 3 into existing systems. The use of PROFIsafe reduces wiring effort and installation time.
PLC and I/O system for flexible and cost-effective automation
Inline controllers (ILCs) are the proven standard in the Phoenix Contact PLC portfolio. The control technology supports all common communication paths such as Ethernet and cellular communication. In addition, they can be easily extended with versatile Inline I/O modules and provide optimum communication with an integrated, freely programmable web server.
PROFINET device functionality means that the control technology can be integrated easily into existing PROFINET networks.
