PLCnext Control Extensions

The following extension modules can be used with every Axioline-based PLCnext Control (e.g. AXC F 2152) with left side PCI express interface.

AXC F XT ETH 1TX - already available

Extend your PLCnext control with an additional high performance (based on Intel® i210 chipset) 1 GbE network card.

Order No.: 2403115

AXC F XT IB 1H - later in 2019

Integrate new or old (Supi 3 device chips or higher) Interbus networks with this new Interbus G4 Master extension.

Order No.: 2403018

AXC F XT EXP - End of 2019

Extension module for expanding the left side PCIe lane to 3 lanes.

AXC F XT PB - End of 2019

Upgrade your PLCnext control to a Profibus Master.
