Currently it is planned to start with the AXC F 2152 (Small Scale PLC) and RFC 4072 (High performance PLC).

In the next year will the portfolio grow and also a Soft PLC of PLCnext Technology could be possible.

The cycle time is with the initiate firmware versions of both controls (AXC F 2152 and RFC 4070S) 500us, but will be imporved with later firmware versions.

Please check back the PLCnext Controls - Implementation Roadmap, for further updates.

Depending on the version of the new firmware it might be necessary to recompile the C++ application with the SDK of the used firmware.

Otherwise it might happen that the PLCnext Technology framework can not boot completely, please reset the AXC F 2152 (Reset the AXC F 2152 controller) in such cases.
