Another year has come and nearly gone, and with it, the SPS IPC Drives show. Among those presenting their latest products and services was Phoenix Contact, with a plethora of new apps and products designed to make automation and digitalization easier and more secure. Below are but a few examples of Phoenix’s latest products and services displayed this year.
PLCnext Store – Apps for industrial automation technology
With its PLCnext Technology, Phoenix Contact offers an open control platform that enables the use of high-level languages in addition to classical IEC 61131 programming for application development. Software applications (apps) for industrial automation technology are available for download from the PLCnext Store. With our app offerings, you can extend your PLCnext Control quickly and easily by adding technical functions. For example, you can use All-in-One apps without any special programming skills and refine your PLCnext Control, e.g., for managing a solar park.
