PLCnext Control Extensions

The following extension modules can be used with every Axioline-based PLCnext Control (e.g. AXC F 2152) with left side PCI express interface.

AXC F XT ETH 1TX

Extend your PLCnext control with an additional high performance (based on Intel ® i210 chipset) 1 GbE network card.

Part No.: 2403115

AXC F IL ADAPT

Set up an Inline station for PLCnext Technology and to integrate INTERBUS™ devices.
This Inline adapter terminal (INTERBUS™ Master) is designed to be aligned to the right of an Axiocontrol series PLCnext Control device.

Part No.: 1020304

AXC F XT IB 1H

Integrate INTERBUS™ networks (Supi 3 device chips or higher) with this new INTERBUS G4 Master extension.

Part No.: 2403018


Latest Update: November 29th, 2019
