Yaska­wa reli­es on PLCnext

Yaska­wa is a Japa­ne­se com­pa­ny that is a glo­bal lea­der in the field of indus­tri­al robots, tog­e­ther with the Japa­ne­se com­pa­ny Fanuc. The inven­tor of the term “mecha­tro­nics” will in future rely on PLCnext Tech­no­lo­gy from Phoe­nix Con­tact.

The sha­red goal of Yaska­wa and Phoe­nix Con­tact is to dri­ve for­ward the tran­si­ti­on away from pro­prie­ta­ry solu­ti­ons towards an open and future-pro­of eco­sys­tem for indus­tri­al auto­ma­ti­on. Yaska­wa, a lea­ding com­pa­ny in this indus­try, has deci­ded to use PLCnext Tech­no­lo­gy. As a part of this frame­work, Phoe­nix Con­tact will licen­se its PLCnext run­ti­me envi­ron­ment to Yaska­wa and has agreed upon joint fur­ther deve­lop­ment. Yaska­wa plans to use the PLCnext run­ti­me sys­tem in the fields of Moti­on Con­trols and Robo­tics, initi­al­ly in Euro­pe and the USA.

I am real­ly hap­py that we are now deepe­ning our long-stan­ding, trus­ting busi­ness rela­ti­ons­hip even fur­ther and expan­ding our part­nership in the field of indus­tri­al con­trol tech­no­lo­gy,” empha­si­zes Bru­no Schne­ken­bur­ger, CEO and Pre­si­dent of Yaska­wa Euro­pe. Ulrich Lei­de­cker, COO and Pre­si­dent of the Indus­tri­al Manage­ment and Auto­ma­ti­on Busi­ness Area at Phoe­nix Con­tact, adds, “The open­ness of the PLCnext eco­sys­tem enab­les a lar­ge num­ber of pro­vi­ders to offer high­ly fle­xi­ble, secu­re, and modern auto­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy. This tech­no­lo­gy part­nership with Yaska­wa is a mile­stone for the auto­ma­ti­on indus­try, becau­se the more part­ners that enga­ge in an open auto­ma­ti­on eco­sys­tem, the more bene­fi­ci­al it beco­mes for every sin­gle par­ti­ci­pant.”

PLCnext Tech­no­lo­gy is the open eco­sys­tem for indus­tri­al auto­ma­ti­on from Phoe­nix Con­tact. With a com­bi­na­ti­on of open con­trol tech­no­lo­gy, modu­lar engi­nee­ring soft­ware, and an online com­mu­ni­ty, this solu­ti­on allows users to adapt easi­ly to chan­ging demands and to use exis­ting and future soft­ware ser­vices effi­ci­ent­ly. Fea­turing a digi­tal mar­ket­place for soft­ware and sys­te­ma­tic cloud inte­gra­ti­on, PLCnext Tech­no­lo­gy is well equip­ped to face the chal­len­ges of the IoT world.
