Early Adopter program

Become an Early Adopter

Be one of the first users of PLCnext Technology: apply for the Early Adopter program and experience the new solution based on PLCnext Technology, even before official market launch.

PLCnext Technology

Automation solutions need to be more flexible to shorten development times and to adjust production processes as quickly as possible. The pace of innovation is increasing rapidly, technologies are converging, and products and infrastructures are becoming more intelligent. A future-proof automation solution must be open and flexible and permit quick adjustments.

With PLCnext Technology, developers from a range of areas, disciplines, and generations can work independently, in parallel, and in an agile way, on individual parts of a complex application – in their usual programming environment.
