Communication protocols

Reliable inclusion of all participants in the field

In addition to OPC UA, the new control platform also understands multiple other communication protocols. PLCnext Technology also realizes horizontal data exchange, i.e., between different controllers, in addition to vertical communication, i.e., with the control system or the Phoenix Contact Proficloud.

The connection to the conventional field level is still provided. Here, in addition to PROFINET, CANopen®, and Modbus, remote control protocols such as IEC 60870-5-104 and 101 are supported.
