PCWorx Engineer software for the Phoenix Contact 2152 starterkitFollow article
Before you can really get started with the PLCnext starter kit or even just the AXC F 2152, there are a few things that need to be initialized, installed or updated.
In this post, I will demonstrate installing and licensing the PCWorx engineer software needed to program the 2152 within the IEC61131-3 environment
I am told by Phoenix Contact that this may not be needed soon as the software will become available without the need for licensing and will be free. (Special modules may still be at a cost)
