Expansion modules for PLCnext Control controllers
PLC Next Technology now offers users even more flexibility for individual requirements with PLC Next Controllers from Phoenix Contact: The interfaces of the PLC Next Controllers can be adjusted using expansion modules.
These expansion modules are then connected to the left side of the controller. The first module to be released is the ETHERNET derivative. It provides an extra Ethernet interface with an additional MAC address. Configuration is performed via the PLCnext Engineer software.
In the near future two additional Field bus-specific modules will be added to left hand side the expansion module options. Both variants will include a master function to allow both existing and new INTERBUS and PROFIBUS networks to be controlled by PLC Next controllers.
