Your advantages

  • Diagnostic display for fast error detection
  • Maximum performance, thanks to high processor speed
  • Communication in realtime via PROFINET
  • Optimum connection with integrated web server and support for all common IT standards
  • High degree of flexibility, thanks to expansion with numerous I/O modules

High-performance PROFINET controllers in use

Automation of a wind park with compact controllers  

Automation of a wind park with compact controllers

The class 400 programmable logic controllers provide optimum control for sophisticated automation tasks, e.g., in control processes or as the central controller in large systems.

You can therefore automate complex networks efficiently, such as painting lines in the automotive industry or wind parks.

Controllers from the RFC 470 series support model-based program development with the Simulink Smart Solution software.

RFC 460R PN – redundant controllers for fail-safe applications

RFC 460R PN controller  

RFC 460R PN controller

Ensure the continuous operation of your automation – with the PROFINET redundancy controllers from Phoenix Contact. The high-performance PLCs establish a redundant system automatically, thanks to AutoSync Technology. As such, there can be up to 80 km between two redundant controllers – thanks to FO synchronization cables.

RFC 470 PN – compact controller with maximum performance

RFC 470 PN controller  

RFC 470 PN controller

The most powerful controllers from Phoenix Contact: the devices are optimally integrated in PROFINET. Control and fieldbus system status messages are conveniently read via the diagnostic display. Thanks to the powerful processor, comprehensive automation tasks can be processed at maximum speed.

RFC 470S PN – high-performance safety controller

RFC 470S PN controller  

RFC 470S PN controller

The safety version offers all the properties of the RFC 470 PN controller and also has an integrated safety controller.

This combination can be used to integrate safety functions up to SIL 3 into existing systems. The use of PROFIsafe reduces wiring effort and installation time.
