Available now: New Firmware 2019.6

fw2019.6With Firmware 2019.6 , we introduce new and thrilling features in PLCnext Technology - again.

The most interesting thing is our innovative real-time, task-synchronous DataLogger. Record energy data or process steps in next to no time! With the "Record on Change" function, you can keep track which states have changed and when they did. And this all with minimum effort and without programming on your side.

In addition, the embedded OPC UA Server supports Historical Access, so you can access all data recorded by the DataLogger at any time. Read more details on GitHub, and find a config file there.

Firmware 2019.6 also supports MRP Client functions with Profinet devices: The Media Redundancy Protocol (MRP), standardized as IEC 62439-2, allows rings of Ethernet switches to overcome any single failure within a recovery time much faster than achievable with the Spanning Tree Protocol. This feature is highly useful and suitable for most Industrial Ethernet applications.

All the new features will be thrilling to explore, and so we added enhanced performance to the real-time execution as well.

Available now: New Firmware 2019.3

My Post 20The brand new Firmware 2019.3 is out now:

Use the Profinet Redundancy Layer (PRL) for Profinet devices in order to set up a PLCnext Control AXC F 2152 as an underlying device for the RFC 460R in a redundancy system.

The new dynamic bus configuration for the Axioline local bus allows you to configure the Axioline bus from the application* without having to manually assemble the bus structure beforehand. These and other new firmware features will #enhance your possibilities in PLCnext Technology - again.

The Inline adapter terminal AXC F IL ADAPT is supported by the firmware as well as the new PLCnext Store App types: the first Function Extensions and Runtime apps are now available.

* read, configure and start the Axioline bus using the Axioline RSC Service or the corresponding PLCnext Engineer Function Block - this is not related to the PLCnext Engineer feature "Read Axioline Bus"
