PLC logic, Phoenix Contact’s new programmable logic relay system, is particularly well suited for small automation tasks. It combines the strengths of established relay technology with logic functions in a single package.
The modular design, featuring plug-in relays, enables flexible assembly, depending on the switching task. Pluggable switching elements ensure high machine and system availability thanks to fast replacement during servicing.
The system consists of logic modules, the PLC-Interface relay system, and the Logic+ software. To start up the system, the logic modules are plugged into eight relay modules. A compact 50 mm wide logic module can process 16 input/output signals. The base module can be expanded with up to two add-on modules for more complex applications, making it possible to process up to 48 input/output signals.
Programming is done using the highly intuitive Logic+ software that requires no previous experience in this area.
