aXcontroller A1600

Gateway between IT and The Factory Floor

The aXcontroller provides the plattform for the aXPLC. In addition to time-critical control and remote control tasks, the hardware offers the possibility of a local operation via a control panel on the VGA port. It is installed on a bearing rail TS35.

Features aXcontroller

  • Highly available PLC based on IEC 61131
  • Consistant redundancies over ethernet (4 interfaces) or profibus (2 master)
  • Remote over aX5 IDE projectable
  • Web interface for system configuration and monitoring
  • Embedded operating system (Linux open embedded)
  • Optional PLC redundancy
  • Autarkic data exchange between different aXcontrollers (PLC to PLC communication)
  • No revolving or rotating parts, therefore virtually maintenance-free

The aXcontroller represents the ideal link between field level and IT level and is specially designed for industrial applications. The homogeneous aXcontroller fits into any IT network. In addition, the aXcontroller is characterized by a compact data acquisition. With these properties, the aXcontroller is suitable for decentralized (cell based) automation solutions in the fields of energy, process industry and infrastructure.
