The laboratory of “Embedded Control Systems” was created at the DOED Department of NURE together with the company Phoenix Contact
September 24, 2020 at the Department of Design and Operation of Electronic Devices of Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics together with Phoenix Contact LLC and PHOENIX CONTACT GmbH & Co. KG opened a laboratory of “Embedded Control Systems”
PLCnext from Phoenix Contact appeared in NURE.
PLCnext Controlare are the first PLC based on the open automation platform PLCnext Technology. They allow to implement automation projects without the traditional limitations of proprietary systems.
PLCnext Technology allows to run parallel programming based on common software tools such as Visual Studio, Eclipse, Matlab Simulink, and PLCnext Engineer, as well as arbitrarily choose the relationship of the source code they create. In this way, the functions of the IEC 61131-3 standard can be combined with C/C++, C# or Matlab® Simulink® systems and combined into a common system.
The creation of such a powerful laboratory became possible thanks to the fruitful cooperation of the DOED staff with Phoenix Contact within the framework of the international educational network EduNet.
“Creating a laboratory of “Embedded Control Systems” based on PLCnext will allow the DOED Department to move to a qualitatively new level of teaching and implement the concepts of Industry 4.0. In the laboratory,” – said senior lecturer of the DOED Department Pavlo Galkin.
At the opening of the laboratory, the Dean of the ACT Faculty Filipenko Olexander Ivanovich stressed the importance of opening software and hardware laboratories in terms of implementing the concept of Industrial Internet of Things.
