Solution App 

A Solution App is a fully programmed automation solution for which you do not need any programming knowledge. You download a Solution App from the PLCnext Store directly to a PLCnext Control. To download the Solution App onto your controller, the controller needs to be connected to the PLCnext Store (see the topic Connecting a PLCnext Control with the PLCnext Store).

A Solution App usually contains a web interface. You can adjust the solution via the web interface using several parameters.


  • To use a Solution App, certain hardware components are required. To find out which hardware components you need for the corresponding Solution App, refer to the detail page of the respective Solution App.
  • The source code of a Solution App is not public and cannot be changed.
  • Currently, you can execute only one single Solution App on a controller.
  • If a PLCnext Engineer project is already on your PLCnext Control, it will be deleted by the installation of a Solution App.
  • If there is a Solution App on your PLCnext Control, no PLCnext Engineer project can be started on the PLCnext Control.
  • Delete a Solution App directly via the PLCnext Store or use the WBM of the device for deinstallation.
  • In case of a reset every app will be deleted, the licenses will be retained.
