The high speed industrial controller of the ZX20-series also do not have any cycle time and thus, always ensures fastest possible - and even more importantly - constantly fast processes, < 9 µsec.
Because of the FPGA chip, instead of a microcontroller, 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, no Jitter effects.
For all ZX20 the programming is done via the Ethernet interface; network applications are easily and quickly realized.
Of course, you can programm the ZX20 as easily as you are used to in a PLC - with Structured Text (ST) according to IEC 61131-3.
The ZX20-series offers more than 20 digital inputs and 16 digital outputs and therefore has more I/Os than the ZX09-series.
Special bus variants with integrated PROFINET (ZX20TP) and EtherCAT (ZX20TC) are also available.
Furthermore, the ZX21TP variant has a higher chip capacity / processing power for complex, multi networked applications.
