High speed PLC for machine control

Nexto Xpress PLCNexto Xpress compact PLC  is our main product for the segment. Created to meet the demands of the machinery market, the controller is perfect for applications that demand speed and precision in control. Its 32-bit ARM processor, combined with the real-time clock (RTC) and the high density of multipurpose digital and analog I/O points (voltage, current and temperature) give the solution a high processing capacity, precision and agility in data acquisition.

Connectivity is another highlight of Nexto Xpress PLCs. With built-in Ethernet, Serial RS 485, CAN and USB communication interfaces, the Xpress PLCs also support a wide range of communication protocols, such as MODBUS TCP and RTU, PROFINET, CANopen and J-1939, IEC 60870-5- 104, EtherNet/IP, OPC DA, OPC UA and MQTT. The features also allow the controller to communicate directly with the most relevant cloud hosting services on the market, such as Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Google One and Amazon AWS.
