With the ILC 170 ETH 2TX, the highly modular Inline Controller range from Phoenix Contact has been extended to include a high-performance compact controller. This controller can be used to extend the possible field of application of Inline Controllers right down to smaller applications. With direct integration in the Inline automation system, the compact controller is highly modular and can be adapted to the relevant application requirements. Its integrated Ethernet interfaces enable parameterization and programming using PC WorX automation software according to IEC 61131, and it can also exchange data with OPC servers simultaneously and communicate with TCP/IP-compatible devices.
The Inline Controller range covers a wide performance range. From entry-level versions through to high-end controllers, users can find the right controller for their application. Within the product portfolio, users can choose between controllers with different computing capacities, with or without PROFINET controllers, and with or without GL approval.
