New Firmware 2020.0 LTS for AXC F 2152

Firmware 2020 0


After a year with three quarterly feature releases, we've published today our new version Firmware 2020.0 LTS with long-term support for the PLCnext Control AXC F 2152!

In this cumulative update, all previous features, functions, and fixes are integrated as well as some new features:

  • Docker™ readiness
  • Some improvements for the Real-time DataLogger
  • Implementation of the “SysV IPC” Linux extension
  • OpenSSL update to version 1.1.1 (which is recommended)
  • Axioline Smart Elements support
  • Some bugfixes - see Change Notes

There will be security updates and bugfixes for this LTS version throughout the next year. And there will be some feature releases available for those of you who are eager to develop faster and adopt early...

Don't hesitate and update your PLCnext Control AXC F 2152 to firmware 2020.0 LTS now, and don't miss the updated SDK and PLCnext CLI for your operation system, and the according PLCnext Engineer 2020.0 LTS.

Users with the need for higher performance will find their PLCnext Control RFC 4072S firmware here, next to their according SDK and PLCnext CLI for both operation systems.

Note: Updating the Eclipse® Add-in maybe requires updating your Java installation to version 9 or above. Since Eclipse® only requires Java v8, you might check this first. Linux users: find a brief description for updating to JDK v9 or later Updating Java to JDK version 9 for use with the Eclipse Add-in 2020.0 LTS.

I'm currently in the middle of a project. Should I keep 2019.9 or should I update? Because I should update all of my programblocks if I do so right?

Hello Arne,
of course the compatibility of the different firmware versions is one of our biggest concerns. But despite all the care we put into this, there might still be a chance to experience incompatibilities with certain projects - depending on the functions and features you're using.

We recommend to read and follow the hints in the Change Notes (find them next to the firmware download) before updating.

And of course the technical contact at a Phoenix Contact subsidiary in your region will support you with checking your project in detail! :-)
