ZX06AIO high-speed-controller

The ZX06AIO is analog high performance in small format. This high-speed programmable logic controller (PLC) based on an FPGA has 6 analog inputs (0..10V or 4..20mA) and 4 analog outputs (0..10V) in a super slim format. The processing time of the analog inputs and outputs is within a few microseconds (< 7 µs). It also provides up to two RS-485 interfaces or up to two SSI interfaces to communicate with external devices.

The ZX06AIO can be used as a stand-alone PLC or as a modular expansion unit with our ZX controllers. Using our own high-speed protocol ZanderLink, our ZX06AIO seamlessly connects to a ZanderLink-enabled controller and expands it by 6 analog inputs and 4 analog outputs. The data exchange takes place within a few microseconds.

The PLC itself is freely programmable via our EX_PRESS 6 software (part no.: 589591) and an additional programming adapter.
