Install the Agilicus connector directly on the PLC for highest security and simplest deployment.

Phoenix Contact PLCnext AXC F x152

The Phoenix Contact PLCnext AXC F 2152 (and 1152 and 3152) provide an ideal platform to run the Agilicus Connector. It has enough storage, CPU, its in the right vantage point in the network. Once installed, you can use it for programming, or for operations.

The installation is the same as all other Linux platforms.

First, we SSH into the PLC. This is typically ssh admin@plc with username ‘admin’ and password ‘plcnext’.

Next we must enable the root password if we have not already:

sudo passwd root
(admin password)
(new root password)
(new root password)

At this stage we can become root:

su - root
(new root password)
#

At this stage, go to the Agilicus admin interface and create a new connector. Select the ‘Linux’ install and paste into the ssh window above:

As a reminder, this command line times out in 10 minutes, if you have note done those steps above first, just regenerate the command-line

The correct output will look something like below. You may need to have DNS enabled and NTP (for time).

At this stage we can check its running. In the Agilicus admin interface, the connector line will go ‘GREEN’ (Good) within a minute or so. We can also test on the PLC:

# ps -ef|grep agilicus

that line should show the service running.

The Agilicus Connector also works on the PLCnext simulator.
