  •    -   Comprehensive and consistent – optimally coordinated PLCs, I/O systems, and PLC software from a single source
  •    -   Versatile and individual – whether programmable logic relay systems or high-performance PLCs, in the control cabinet or the field, the wide range provides you with creative automation solutions
  •    -   High quality and robust – cost-effective and reliable automation with Phoenix Contact, even in extreme conditions
  •    -   Safe and reliable – intelligent safety solutions protect personnel and machinery, and ensure high system availability



Open and innovative – PLCnext Control

PLCnext Control devices are the first PLCs for the open PLCnext Technology automation platform. They enable the implementation of automation projects without the limitations of proprietary systems. Connect directly to Proficloud and integrate tailored cloud services and future technologies.

PLCnext Technology enables parallel programming based on established software tools. These include Visual Studio, Eclipse, Matlab Simulink, and PLCnext Engineer, as well as the freely selectable integration of existing program code. This enables you, for example, to freely combine functions in accordance with IEC 61131-3 with routines from C/C++, C# or MATLAB Simulink, and to merge these to create a complete system.



PLCs in all performance classes for IEC 61131-3 programming

Phoenix Contact offers a wide range of PLCs to meet every requirement. Choose from programmable logic controllers for small to medium-sized systems. PLC systems with matching I/Os, high-performance PLCs for complex automation tasks. Software PLCs that enable you to transform your industrial PCs into high-performance PLCs complete the product range.



I/O systems for the control cabinet (IP20)

Choose from a comprehensive range of I/O modules and I/O terminals for the control cabinet – including for very fast data communication. Implement safety applications with Phoenix Contact's PROFIsafe modules, for example, or with no safety controller at all by using SafetyBridge Technology.

Phoenix Contact's I/O systems can be optimally combined with all Phoenix Contact programmable logic controllers.



I/O systems for the field (IP65/IP67)

I/O devices that support modular extension and have a high degree of functionality can be used in the field, or particularly robust devices with a block design can be used for harsh industrial environments.

Phoenix Contact's IO-Link/analog converters and IO-Link masters also provide a high degree of flexibility in the field and can be used to implement analog communication without any shielded cables.



Controller for building automation

You can use the ILC 2050 BI building IoT controller to quickly and efficiently automate all subsections in building infrastructure, data centers, and decentral properties. The controller is the platform of the IoT-capable automation system from Phoenix Contact that enables the technical management of buildings and properties.

The device features a variety of interfaces, and therefore supports all relevant and current building automation protocols. The data types of the various protocols are standardized, therefore enabling IoT-based automation.



Programmable small-scale controller

Implement small automation tasks using the PLC logic relay system. This combines the advantages of plug-in relays with logic functions and intuitive software.

Technologies such as Push-in, Bluetooth, and a specially developed PLC logic app simplify integration, monitoring, and operation.

Pipeline Hack Raises Questions and Concerns: How Secure is your OT Network? - JMP Solutions

JMP SolutionsHow secure is your industrial network? Do you have shared passwords? While working on OT related networks, can you access the internet and your email?

If you have been following the news and happen to work in a process or manufacturing facility, you are probably thinking about how secure your environment is, and if it is at risk for critical production halting threats.  Whether your company manufactures cars, packages food products, or provides an essential resource or goods to society, an attack could be crippling to not only your business but the population who may very well rely on the goods that you produce.

UCEC Identifies What Makes Them a Top Notch Control Panel Builder


UCEC has existed for more than sixty years by building the best control panels, period. To keep their focus on quality custom panels, they have never defined themselves as a “one-stop shop." To be all things to all people with something as complicated as a control panel should send up a red flag. When panels shops try to do everything (a “one-stop shop”), that’s when things get diluted and messy.

There is so much talent and work that goes into a UCEC panel. UCEC knows their industry thoroughly, and they wish to remain highly relevant in the field. No one gets there by being all things to all people. UCEC shares two examples of this philosophy in action.


UCEC's talented craftsmen contribute their years of knowledge of panel building to each project. Conversely, most engineering firms who try to build panels quickly learn there is more to them than meets the eye. As UCEC's President and CEO, Mark Inboden said, “Two specialized companies collaborating to solve a customer’s problem often leads to a better result for the end user.”

UCEC finds that the best results happen for their clients when they partner with other experts and this case study demonstrates exactly that.
