XL Prime and OCS I/O

XL Prime Series

For years, the Horner XL Series has enjoyed a reputation as one of the most highly functional All-in-one Controller available anywhere. These products are currently trusted with thousands of applications world-wide. The NEW XL Prime Series builds upon that proven reputation – offering new and existing users alike performance upgrades and a highly secure, modern memory
architecture. This is accomplished with a new Horner designed System on Module (SOM) – containing a faster CPU, onboard mass storage and 100% non-volatile memory. The only battery is a small coin cell – simply tasked with maintaining the clock.

If you are a new automation designer looking for an innovative, reliable control solution – the XL Prime Series offers a fully integrated product in hardware and software. If you are an existing XL Series user – your current application program will port straight through in less than 30 seconds. In either case you can’t go wrong!


ALL-IN-ONE CONTROL – performs all machine functions in a unified hardware design; Logic Control, Operator Interface, I/O and Networking.

MODERN MEMORY ARCHITECTURE – based on a custom designed SOM (System on Module) utilizing a powerful ARM microprocessor and 100% nonvolatile
memory for reliability.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE LOGIC ENGINE – fast scan times solving user logic using Variable-based Advanced Ladder logic or the IEC 6-1131 language set.

ONLINE PROGRAMMING – make logic changes without stopping the controller.

HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOR TOUCHSCREEN – for detailed graphics and nearly instantaneous screen updates.

ADVANCED HIGH-SPEED COUNTER – four built-in counters supporting frequencies over 500 kHz.

INDUSTRIAL ETHERNET AND REMOTE CONTROL – Ethernet IP, Modbus TCP and BACnet IP; FTP file transfer, Email. WebMI* for web-based Remote Monitoring; Push data to the cloud with MQTT* Sparkplug. *WebMI/MQTT requires one-time license.

PLUG-AND-PLAY DATALOGGING – record machine and process variables to microSD or USB Flash Drive.

BUILT IN I/O – available on all models.

OCS I/O: Highly Expandable & Flexible Remote I/O for OCS

Maybe You Only Need One More…

Sometimes you only need a little bit. Start with the CNX116 – which includes I/O right on the base. Meant as the perfect small amount of complementary I/O, the CNX116 gives you (2) Flexible Inputs (Digital or 12-bit Analog), (2) Digital Outputs, (1) 16-bit Universal Analog Input and (1) 12-bit Analog Output right onboard. Two inputs that can be used for either digital or analog signals, giving it up to 3 analog inputs without even needing another module.

…Or Maybe You Need A Lot

With expandability up to 7 modules per base and 16 bases per network, OCSI/O can handle almost any amount of I/O needs. It even includes a CsCAN In and CsCAN Out port to allow you to easily daisy-chain multiple bases without requiring a lot of custom wiring.

and Configuration Is a Breeze

Whether it’s a little or a lot, OCS-I/O configuration is meant to be simple and effortless. It’s configured using Cscape software, so when wired up, it can find the base and autopopulate all installed modules automatically. From there you may only need to tweak a couple of configurations for the base or modules to be ready to go. Cscape also calculates the I/O power usage for you automatically, so you’ll never overload an I/O base.
