Nexto modular PLC

Classic modular control with innovative CODESYS software

Nexto modular PLC supports our product philosophy of open transparent solutions across the entire product range. That means you can apply the same control project to different Beijer Electronics products depending on preferred choice and best match for the application. You can even adapt projects developed for other brands of CODESYS based products.
