With the product launch of the AXC F 2152 as the first PLCnext Control is now the PLCnext Technology toolchain in our download center available!

It contains the Software Development Kit (Linux 32/64Bit and Windows 64Bit), the Eclipse® CDT Plug In with the PC Worx Engineer Library Builder.

Next to the toolchain are by now also the first examples, with the focus on real-time user programs, ready to download:

Some of you might remember the start of the "Early Adopter Community" in May, 2017, which was designed to support interested parties during the Early Adopter Program for PLCnext Technology. Since then more than 100 automation companies all over the world have been accepted as Early Adopters and successfully managed the first steps with the new platform for limitless automation.

As the Early Adopter Program is expiring now it was the right time to restructure the community and its added values and to open it to the public. Any interested party is cordially invited to register and start a discovery tour through PLCnext Technology!

You will discover e.g. helpful insights, howtos, and tutorials about PLCnext Technology, PC Worx Engineer, and Proficloud (coming soon). Use and benefit from the possibility to get in contact and exchange ideas, experiences, and feedback with other community members and PLCnext Technology experts!

The first PLCnext Control - the AXC F 2152 - will now be launched at the SPS IPC Drives show in Nuremberg. Don´t miss out and take off into the future with limitless automation. Visit the Phoenix Contact booth in hall 9 from November 28 - 30, 2017, and enhance your automation thinking. For a first impression please visit the new PLCnext website.

We are looking forward to see you there!

Thanks for your vote from the whole PLCnext Technology Team! smile

Sometimes it is easier to follow the steps than to just read manuals or to watch videos.

Therefore we uploaded first examples to make the first steps more simple.

Just check out the Download and Example Area

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"
