The new high speed controller of the ZX-series also do not have any cycle time and thus, always ensures fastest possible - and even more importantly - constantly fast processes. How is this possible?
The ZX09 and ZX20 have another core element. This core element is not a micro-processor, but an FPGA chip. Because of this no cyclic programme is executed - all programmes take place in a parallel manner in real-time and that too, several times faster than in a PLC. This also applies to the analogue inputs and outputs!
ZX09 and ZX20 are communicative. Programming is done via the Ethernet interface; also, interconnected applications are easily and quickly realised.
Of course, you can programme as easily as you are used to in a PLC - with Structured Text.
