Would you like to program in accordance with IEC 61131-3? In order to satisfy your requirements, Phoenix Contact offers PLCs in all performance classes. Use our PLCs, for example, in machine building and systems manufacturing, renewable energy or automotive applications. Utilize our PLC systems with the matching I/Os or select a high-performance controller for maximum performance.

Your advantages

  • Communicative, thanks to integrated, freely programmable web server and a large variety of interfaces and protocols
  • Durable, thanks to the sturdy housing and EMI-resistant electronics
  • High degree of flexibility and extendibility, thanks to numerous I/Os perfectly tailored to the PLC
  • Global service and support as well as short response times increase system availability

Fast and robust PLC with matching I/O system

Axiocontrol with I/O and safety modules  

Axiocontrol PLC with local Axioline F I/O and safety modules

The PLCs from the Axiocontrol series (AXC) 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, thanks to an integrated uninterruptible power supply.

Together with the Axioline F I/O system from Phoenix Contact, Axiocontrol controllers offer maximum speed, thanks to direct bus connection.

Almost all of the PLCs in the Axiocontrol series are also available with an extended temperature range for extreme temperatures.

PLC and I/O system for flexible and cost-effective automation

Inline station (ILC and I/Os)  

Inline PLC with local I/O terminals

Inline controllers (ILC) are the proven standard in the Phoenix Contact PLC portfolio. The PLCs support all common communication paths, such as Ethernet and mobile 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. 

The PLC system can be easily integrated into existing PROFINET networks, thanks to PROFINET device functionality.

Redundant and safe PLCs with maximum performance

RFC 460R and RFC 480S high-performance PLCs  

PLCs with maximum performance for redundancy and safety

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. Thanks to the powerful processor, comprehensive automation tasks can be processed at maximum speed.

Ensure the continuous operation of your automation applications with the PROFINET redundancy PLCs. 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.

Software PLCs

PC Worx RT Basic and PC Worx SRT software PLCs  

Software PLCs for IPCs

The software PLC from Phoenix Contact is a cost-effective alternative to a conventional PLC. Tailored to your performance requirements, an industrial PC or even a conventional Windows PC is transformed into a control unit, operator interface or visualization unit in your system.

Depending on the performance requirements, select PC WORX SRT with statistically guaranteed response times for small to medium-sized tasks.

For complex automation that demands hard real time, select PC WORX RT BASIC. System operation is particularly stable, as a real-time extension is installed in addition to the standard Windows operating system. This ensures the integrity and deterministic behavior of the controller.

PLC programming software

PC Worx PLC programming software, PC Worx Express, SafetyProg, and PC Worx Target for Simulink  

PLC programming software in accordance with IEC 61131 with safety and Simulink integration for various applications

From clear tasks with basic PLCs to complex system automation with high-performance PLCs: you will find the right PLC programming software for your application here.

Use the PC Worx software to perform programming in accordance with IEC 61131, fieldbus configuration, and system diagnostics. For a fast introduction to automation with basic PLCs, we also offer the PC Worx Express software free of charge.

Transform your PLC into a safety PLC with SafetyProg, or integrate the functions of Matlab Simulink with PC Worx Target for Simulink.
