Software PLC: the Industrial PC becomes a controller

Use the full power of your Industrial PC by turning it into a full-fledged PLC. With PC Worx RT BASIC, you can control your system in realtime. In addition, the entire system is as reliable and stable as a conventional PLC.

Save money and control applications reliably

The software PLC from Phoenix Contact is the cost-effective and high-performance alternative to a conventional controller. This transforms the industrial PC into a combined control unit, operator interface and visualization unit within your automation system.

The stability of the controller, which is independent of the operating system, is achieved by means of a realtime extension.  This is installed in addition to the standard operating system, meaning that the realtime control part is shielded from the Windows environment and runs particularly reliably.

The software PLC also supports all common protocols such as PROFINET, INTERBUS or Modbus and offers maximum Ethernet openness. Visualization tasks can be processed quickly and easily thanks to the integrated web server.
