A new safety controller with programming flexibility

By Chemical Engineering |

Phoenix Contact

The Phoenix PLCnext Control RFC 4072S controller (photo) is the first high-performance controller for this company’s PLCnext Technology ecosystem. It can be used to leverage all the advantages of the control platform: programming in users’ preferred programming language and programming environment, using open-source software, apps, Proficloud and soon, the realtime version of the PLCnext store. In addition to a high-performance Intel i5 dual-core processor, the controller also includes 4 GB of RAM. The safety-relevant calculations are performed by two independent CPUs that are based on different architectures. Therefore, it is suitable for applications with high safety requirements in accordance with SIL 3 or PLe. The safety-oriented controller uses the current Profisafe profile 2.61 for Profinet and Profisafe systems. — Phoenix Contact GmbH & Co. KG, Blomberg, Germany
