Phoenix Contact has launched the new Axiocontrol AXC 3050 controllers designed to deliver high performance in complex automation tasks within industrial environments.
Featuring high-speed counters and event tasks, the controller offers fast processing speed and short response times without the need for special I/O modules. The rugged, EMC-resistant housing opens up new possibilities for use in harsh industrial environments.
To set up local stations, the Axioline F I/O system modules can be installed in the modular controller as required. The controller can be integrated into existing networks via three Ethernet interfaces and expanded to include additional local I/O modules.
The user can choose between the TCP/IP, UDP, Modbus/TCP, and Profinet communication protocols, with the controller functioning as both a Profinet controller and a Profinet device. A USB connection makes it easy to log data on removable media as well as update the controller program. In the event of power failures, the Axiocontrol PLC automatically backs up all controller data from the application onto the flash card.
