Phoenix Contact now offers the PLCnext store for its open control platform PLCnext. This software store provides software applications (apps) that users can utilise to add technical functions to the PLCnext Control controller. Depending on the app, the user does not need any deep knowledge of programming to create their application directly using the software.
The open nature of the store also allows third-party providers, in addition to Phoenix Contact, to sell the apps that they have developed. This means that the store is not just of interest for control technology users, but also for software providers. Easy access to software applications and reduced programming work accelerate application development. Innovative solutions can be created and the versatility and application options of automation systems expanded through a dynamically growing range of apps.
At the PLCnext Store, the most varied apps for any application are available – from software libraries for accelerated programming through completely programmed apps that can be used without any programming knowledge. The controller just needs to be configured and adapted to the individual requirements on site.
