Tackle your challenges with a new generation of controllers
There are many challenges for high-performing buildings that can be mastered with the help of the new Desigo PXC4 and PXC5 controllers. These buildings need to intelligently connect field devices, enable quick and easy engineering, be both open and secure at the same time, and provide all the information necessary to optimally manage a building. This calls for a new generation of controllers. It’s time for Desigo PXC4 and Desigo PXC5 controllers – the first of a new range of building automation controllers that expand and strengthen the Desigo system.
Discover the Desigo PXC4 and PXC5 controllersThe new generation of Desigo automation controllers consists of the Desigo PXC4 for HVAC plants and the Desigo PXC5 for system functions and integration. Both offer a wide range of benefits for automating small to medium-sized buildings.
Desigo PXC4 BACnet controller
The Desigo PXC4 controller is designed as a compact device with 16 onboard I/Os that can be expanded to a maximum of 40 IOs with additional TX-I/O modules. TX-I/O modules can be directly connected or installed on another location by island bus. The PXC4 has an integrated power supply for up to 4 TX-I/O modules and an RS485 port used for Modbus RTU. You can add as many devices as you like, either on RTU or TCP, up to a limit of 40 Modbus data points. The hardware is ready for future connection of KNX devices by simply installing a firmware update.
Desigo PXC4 Small BACnet controller
Introducing Desigo PXC4 Small, the smallest family member in the next generation of automation for efficient control of HVAC plants. This cost-effective controller with plenty of I/Os is the optimal solution for small plants needs. It's the right choice for you if 3rd party integration is not required.
The PXC5 is a freely programmable controller used for BACnet system-level functions like alarm routing, system-wide scheduling and trending, and device supervision. It also comes with a web interface for generic datapoint commanding. Two RS485 ports can be configured as either BACnet MS/TP or Modbus RTU, and Modbus TCP devices can also be integrated. Integration of up to 500 Modbus data points is included. The hardware is ready for future connection of KNX and Mbus devices by simply installing a firmware update.
