PLCnext Edge Gateway

Phoenix Contact October 17, 2022

Phoenix Contact’s PLCnext Edge Gateway software can collect data in the most demanding IIoT and edge computing environments. The downloadable app has an advanced industrial design and no code/low code programming to collect data from any device or sensor and send it directly to the cloud service of your choice. It is scalable for nearly any control system, from a single small machine to an entire manufacturing floor. PLCnext Edge Gateway requires no programming experience. The simple, web-based configuration uses checkboxes and simple prompts to configure connections. It is compatible with hardware in the PLCnext ecosystem, including the Phoenix Contact AXC F 1152/2152 controllers and Axioline I/O. The PLCnext Edge Gateway currently has drivers to connect with AXIOBUS (local Axioline I/O connection), Modbus, EtherNet/IP (Rockwell controllers only), and the PLCnext API (local control data and variables within PLCnext Engineer.) Cloud connections are available for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and DSA Brokers. It is also possible to connect through SparkplugB as a driver.
