What's new?

New Firmware 2019.9

fw2019.9With Firmware 2019.9 , we introduce another bunch of new features in PLCnext Technology. This time it's all about making life in the PLCnext ecosystem easier for all you hardworking engineers:

With the new LDAPs access mode, user management will be much easier: the "Lightweight Directory Access Protocol" (here over SSL, so therefore it's LDAPs) allows to manage all the users on all your controllers from a single point, e.g. your Active Directory. Read more on this feature and how to implement it in the 2019.9 release of the PLCnext Technology User Manual (PDF here).

In addition, you can use more features for Diagnostics from the Web-based Management and force I/Os. And of course there are some bugs fixed. So if you're already hooked on one of our feature updates (2019.3, 2019.6), don't hesitate and update to Firmware 2019.9 now, and don't miss the updated SDK for your Operation System, and the PLCnext Engineer 2019.9 update.
