New products

Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE)

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.

Main features

  • Eight safe digital inputs with two test pulses
  • Four safe digital outputs up to 2 A

Your Advantages

  • 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

Control technology of the Axiocontrol series

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.

RFC 480S and RFC 460R high-performance PLCs

PLCs with maximum performance for redundancy and safety

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.

Inline station (ILC and I/Os)

Inline PLC with local I/O terminals

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.
