My experience with PLCnext

Back in 2020, I was contacted by Director of Marketing, Phoenix Contant Ira Sharp about testing a new product which has revolutionized the way we see PLC. That product was PLCnext AXC F 2132. Before working on PLCnext, I was working extensively on Siemens S7-1200, S7-1500 PLCs. And to make dashboard for my application I install Node-RED on the computer to link it further with Siemens PLCs via OPC UA. It was working great but its not always nice to carry a compuer just for the dashboard.
PLCnext
Here comes PLCnext which solves this problem. PLCnext comes with Linux architecture which supports all the Linux based application. This means, I can install Node-RED in the PLCnext and communicate with the PLC internally using OPC UA layer without needing any extra computer. Its not only just Node-RED, you can install various applications like MySQL, MQTT, Python and many more. You find it interesting?
