PLCnext Engineer is the new version of the Phoenix Contact open source automation platform consistent with PLCnext Control. It combines all of the basic functions needed for configuration, programming, visualization, and diagnostics. PLCnext Control is the first product of Phoenix Contact's open PLC platform based on PLCnext Technology. The controller combines the robustness and security of a classic controler with the compatibility and flexibility of the Smart Devices world. With PLCnext Technology, Phoenix Contact responds to the challenges of the IIoT and simplifies existing control solutions. Automation projects overcome the limitations imposed by proprietary systems and become open to IT languages (C, C ++, Matlab, etc.). Additional modules extend the PLCnext's functionalities by maintaining data integrity (Safety, IEC61850, Cybersecurity, etc.). The new PLC is adaptable and open to future technologies. The extended connectivity offered by open interfaces and direct cloud connection provides more freedom. PLCnext Control impresses with its open character, powerful processor and large memory capacity in a compact design. This solution allows you to rethink the automation, the limits disappearing in favor of new possibilities of industrial automation.

mGuard products are developed to guarantee the safeguarding of the companies know-how and all the the production process sensitive data assets. MGuard security appliances provide stand-alone, custom-designed protection for systems that need it, and are ideally suited for use in the industrial sector with robustness, transparent communication and high encryption power. With their different formats, they are optimized for use in a wide variety of environments. Phoenix Contact's mGuard firewalls offer you double protection. In addition to the installation of firewalls as close as possible to the equipment, we have developed the CIFS PC monitoring technology. This concept places the mGuard firewall in the ability to scan selected PC directories, for example "system32", at the frequency you determine. After a first checksum, considered a clean image, the mGuard will check the integrity of the directories and send an alert to the supervision in the case of an infected file. This will allow quick action before threat propagation or file encryption by a kind of virus like WannaCry. We added three essential functions in the cybersecurity: - Detailed analysis of OPC-DA frames - Detailed analysis of Modbus TCP / IP frames - A scan of industrial PCs to analyze unwanted changes on vital files. The addition of these three new features allows them to offer a true defense in depth on all systems. Protecting the various production sites effectively is the main goal of Phoenix Contact's solutions.
PLCnext Control est le premier produit de la plate-forme d'automate ouverte de Phoenix Contact reposant sur la PLCnext Technology
L'automate allie la robustesse et la sécurité d'un API classique à la compatibilité et la flexibilité de l'univers des Smart Devices. Avec la PLCnext Technology, Phoenix Contact répond aux défis de l'univers de l'IIoT et simplifie les solutions de commande existantes. Les projets d'automatisation s'affranchissent des limites imposées par les systèmes propriétaires et s’ouvrent vers les langages IT. Des modules additionnels permettent d’étendre les fonctionnalités des automates en gardant l’intégrité des données (Safety, IEC61850, Cybersécurité, etc ).
