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"
