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.
