ZX08DIO high-speed-controller

The ZX08DIO is digital high performance in small format. This high-speed programmable logic controller (PLC) based on an FPGA has 8 digital inputs and outputs in a super slim format. Furthermore, it offers up to two RS-485 interfaces or up to two SSI interfaces to communicate with external devices.

The ZX08DIO 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 ZX08DIO seamlessly connects to a ZanderLink-capable controller and expands it by 8 digital inputs and 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.
