The new racehorse from Aachen: ZX20T - the high-speed PLC
Production processes are getting faster and faster. There are many examples: Injection moulding machines, automatic packaging and cutting machines, labelling machines or filling devices in the food industry.
As a result, high demands are put on the controller system. Here, the challenge is not the absolute response time, but rather ensuring exactly reproducible switching points at different machine speeds. Because of varying cycle times, it is often very difficult for conventional PLC controllers to meet these demands.
The state-of-the-art FPGA technology implemented in the ZX20 series enables absolute parallel processing without cycle times and thus, ensures processes at maximum possible speeds and constant pace at all times.
