Thanks to the integrated floating point unit for fast processing of floating point numbers, the ILC 190 ETH 2TX controller from Phoenix Contact especially for fast controls and simple motion applications. The program memory of 1 MB can also be used in larger applications. The controller is characterized by the already integrated Ethernet interface and the associated protocol support of many known from the IT world communication protocols.
These include, for example, HTTP, FTP, SMTP, SNTP, OPC, ODP, SNMP, SQL and other protocols. They are either integrated directly into the device or can be integrated into the PC Worx programming environment simply by installing the associated library.
