Powerful and stable – the Valueline industrial PC as a PLC

Using an IPC as a PLC  

Your IPC can be used as a PLC.

The software PLC from Phoenix Contact is a cost-effective alternative to a conventional PLC.

Matching your performance requirements, such an industrial PC or even a conventional Windows PC turns into a control, operation, or visualization unit in your system.

Stable operation, thanks to separate operating system extension

Shielded control part of the software PLC  

The shielded controller ensures the stability of the controller.

PC WORX RT BASIC enables you to control your system in real-time. System operation is particularly stable, due to a real-time extension being installed in addition to the standard Windows operating system.

This real-time extension - INtime from TenAsys - can shield the real-time control part from the Windows environment. Therefore, the integrity and deterministic behavior of the controller is protected.
