PLCnext Store for Application Development


2022 NED Innovation Award Finalist

The PLCnext Store is a repository for pre-made libraries, applications, solutions, and PLC runtimes developed specifically for PLCnext Control by in-house Phoenix Contact engineers and PLCnext Store contributors. Many applications and libraries are currently available.


The PLCnext Store is a comprehensive marketplace for users and contributors to buy and sell applications that can be downloaded and used with the PLCnext ecosystem of products. Many engineers have downloaded apps to their smart devices to add new functionality, such as health monitoring, weather, etc. Similar functionality can be achieved with the PLCnext Store. Downloads include functions such as machine learning code, opening VPN tunnels for secure networking communications, and new ladder logic instructions to accomplish tasks such as SQL queries and SNMP commands.


On this digital marketplace, information can be exchanged and traded. At the PLCnext Store, developers can optimize business efforts, discover limitless possibilities, and join the growing community of developers and users. PLCnext Technology is a digital ecosystem with an open Linux environment for edge computing.
