The high performance and freely programmable L-INX Automation Server LINX-212 and LINX-213 are used for control applications in hotel and building automation. They can integrate physical I/Os through L-IOB I/O Modules via LIOB-Connect, LIOB-FT, or LIOB-IP. Local operation and override is provided by the built-in jog dial and the backlit display (128x64 pixels). Device and data point information is shown on the display via symbols and in text format.

The built-in PLC functionality (IEC 61131-3) provides a high level of programming freedom. Programming is done with the L-LOGICAD programming tool. The programming tool is based on the IEC 61131-3 standard and offers the programming languages Function Block Diagram (FBD) and Structured Text (ST).

The L-LOGICAD programming tool allows online testing of the IEC61131-3 application over the building network. New IEC 61131-3 applications can be downloaded onto the device without interrupting the current program execution. Multiple IEC 61131-3 programs can be executed in parallel with different cycle times down to 10 ms.
Commissioning and data point definition is done by the L-INX Configurator. Defined Data points coming from different technologies (BACnet, Modbus, M-Bus) can be processed by the L-logiCAD programming tool.
Designed to report high volume of information from remote, LINX also includes an internal SCADA server over which it is possible to design multiple screens with different monitoring values and control any datapoint of the remote building.

The L-INX is a device with two Ethernet communication ports over which the user can share information from inside or outside the building. Several filed buses are available for any kind of management with other peripherals that have one of the following buses:

  • BACnet/IP
  • Modbus TCP (Master/Slave)
  • KNXnet/IP, connection to KNX TP1 through LKNX-300 Interface
  • OPC
  • BACnet MS/TP
  • Modbus RTU (Master/Slave)
  • M-Bus
  • EnOcean wireless devices via LENO-80x Interface
  • WLAN through LWLAN-800 Interface

The L-INX Automation Servers have automation functions for a comprehensive alarming, scheduling, and trending. They feature an integrated OPC XML-DA and OPC XML-UA server and the ability to host customized pages with dynamic content using standard Web technologies.


LINX is a device designed to be installed in DIN rail mounting cabinet and allows the use of different field buses for multiprotocol building control automation.


A free configuration tool is available to configure the L-INX Automation Server LINX-212 and LINX-213. The configuration tool offers a consistent philosophy regarding the handling and operation of the different types of Automation Server and communication technologies (see Data Point Manager under Additional Information for details).

Programming functions must be done using the LOGICAD lincensed tool. System integrator must become a Certified Partner in order to get access to buy the products.
