Eduline PLCnext Technology Board

Ord. No. 1046674

The practical Eduline PLCnext Technology Board is suitable for learning skills in the field of IT automation with a focus on PLC programming. The system board can be used as a module as well as a stand-alone trainer.


Easy to use in class and laboratory scenarios

Ideal for teachers to prepare for lessons at home

Highly durable during transport and in lessons

Pre-wiring enables easy commissioning

Uniform Eduline design with standardized interfaces 

Seamless combination with other Eduline training boards

Relevant Subjects

  • Basic principles of Industry 4.0
  • Programming and operating automated systems
  • Basic principles of PLC programming
  • IEC 61131 programming and high-level languages like C, C++, C#
  • Development of application-oriented automation projects

Product Properties

Our Eduline PLCnext Technology Board is built in DIN-A4 format as a rack or tabletop unit. A transparent rear panel also allows a direct view of the wiring.

  • Depending on the application, up to 16 digital inputs can be controlled via toggle switches and up to 16 digital outputs are available as LEDs.
  • An analog input signal in the form of 0-10 V can be simulated by using a rotary potentiometer as well as a corresponding analog output signal via a graphical bar graph.
  • An additional analog input and output signal can be connected via the existing safety sockets.
  • PLCnext Technology from Phoenix Contact also allows programming in the IEC 61131 languages as well as high-level
    languages such as C/C++ and C#.
  • Digital and analog sensor and actuator technology are
    available directly “on-board”.

Special Features

  • PLCnext Engineer PLC programming software free of charge
  • Programming with PLCnext Engineer
  • Classic and new programming languages
  • Open ecosystem with free trial of for up to 20 metrics per year

We would be pleased to provide you with information about the use of the Eduline PLCnext Technology Board free of charge.
