To give you a preview of what’s to come, we’re showcasing each session along with our business partners who will be delivering them. This time, we’re taking a look at Phoenix Contact’s session.

New generation PLC Architecture

Tony Parrott of Phoenix Contact will explain how future control & automation applications and challenges will need a new open-platform controller – combining the reliability and security of the classic PLC world, with the openness and flexibility of smart devices. Thanks to an open control platform, developers will be able to implement automation projects without the restrictions of proprietary systems and work freely with their favourite programming languages and development tools.

A platform for limitless automation

The world is becoming more and more connected, with even more devices being networked together than people. Industrial automation is no exception to this advancement, and automation systems need to adapt; they need to be flexible, open and networked.

As mentioned, the reliability and security of the classic PLC world with the openness and flexibility of smart devices is important and PLCnext Control combines those very things. The controller with PLCnext Technology is one complete system, ready to face all the challenges of the IoT world and the first open-platform controller.
