IoT PAC Controller
HX Series
Next generation
industrial controller
Automation Solutions by Hitachi
HX Series – IoT Enabled
The new Hitachi HX series PAC Controller
combines powerful features and efficiency
to meet the demands of a global supply
chain in manufacturing industries. In
addition, HX series is already prepared
for the next generation requirements in
automation thanks to its IoT capabilities.
Manufacturing & service innovations can
be achieved with integrated functions and
seamless connectivity from field machine
level to cloud services.
Open standards
The Hitachi HX Series supports global manufacturing by standardized programming with
5 programming languages compatible with the
IEC61131-3 international standard. The integrated
EtherCAT master function (industrial open
network) enables interconnection of a wide range
of devices. Seamless data transfer from field level
to cloud is achieved via OPC-Unified Architecture.
Improved processing speed
Through the effective combination of the recently
developed high-performance CPU with CODESYS
software, Hitachi provides sequential control
(logic) and motion control on one CPU platform
with very fast execution speed.
Simple & easy design environment
Next generation HX Series models are designed
to provide the functionality as PAC Controller
(Programmable Automation Controller) which is
considered as evolution of both PLC & IPC. This
enables users to achieve lower TCO (Total cost of
ownership) through space reduction, lower installation, development and maintenance costs.
