The new high speed controller of the ZX09-series do not have any cycle time and thus, always ensures fastest possible - and even more importantly - constantly fast processes < 3 µsec. How is this possible?
The ZX09-series has another core element. This core element is not a micro-controller, but an FPGA chip. Because of this no cyclic program is executed - all programs 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 with a reaction time of < 10 µsec!
For all ZX09 the programming is done via the Ethernet interface; network applications are easily and quickly realized.
Of course, you can programm the ZX09 as easily as you are used to in a PLC - with Structured Text (ST) according to IEC 61131-3.
ZX09-series is very fast and cost efficient and offers 10 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs as well as a high speed analog output.
The ZX09A has additionally RS485 / SSI interfaces.
Analog variants with 6 analog high speed inputs as well as 2 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs are also available (ZX09B, ZX09C).
