XL10 Prime Series, PLC Automation Controller

XL10 Prime Series, PLC Automation Controller

The XL10 Prime OCS Series are all-in-one industrial control devices developed and manufactured by Horner Automation. These automation controllers combine control, user interface, I/O, and networking into a single, integrated package. All units feature a built-in logic engine, operator interface, networking, and a microSD slot supporting at least 32GB. Unique features of the XL10 Prime Series include:

  • bright, 65,536 color graphical touch sensing LCD display
  • display of complex graphical objects including trends, gauges, meters, and animations
  • very high-performance graphic processing
  • advanced control capabilities including floating point, multiple auto-tuning PID loops and string handling capabilities
  • removable media for storage of programs, data logging, or screen captures
  • CsCAN networking port for communication with remote I/O, other controllers, or PCs


  • high speed USB port for communication with PCs and programming of controller
  • configurable serial protocols for communication to drives, PLCs, or other serial peripherals
  • Full featured, built-in I/O including high resolution analog, thermocouple, RTD, high-speed counters, PWM outputs and relays (depending upon the XL10 PRIME OCS model used)
  • advanced high speed I/O capabilities
  • Cscape programming software that allows all aspects of the XL10 PRIME OCS to be programmed and configured from one integrated application
  • optional communication add-on modules
  • two onboard Ethernet ports (10/100Mbps) for Cscape programming and application defined communication, with Auto MDI/MDI-X.

The XL Prime Series features all-in-one automation controllers to perform all machine functions in a unified hardware design: Logic Control, Operator Interface, I/O, and Networking. This automation controller offers modern memory architecture based on a custom SOM (System on Module) designed by Horner Automation, which utilizes a powerful ARM microprocessor and 100% non- volatile memory for reliability. The high performance logic engine offers fast scan times solving user logic using Variable-based Advanced Ladder logic or the IEC 6-1131 language set.


Automation Controller with High Quality Graphics and Advanced Function

With online programming options, users can make logic changes without stopping the controller. The high resolution color touchscreen offers quality detail graphics and nearly instantaneous screen updates. Additionally, the XL10 Prime Series has four built-in high speed counters supporting frequencies over 500 kHz. This automation controller also features plug-and-play data logging capable of machine recording and can process variables to microSD or USB Flash Drive. Industrial ethernet and remote control functions include:

  • Ethernet IP
  • Modbus TCP
  • BACnet IP
  • FTP file transfer
  • email
  • WebMI* for web-based remote monitoring
  • MQTT* Sparkplug for pushing data to the cloud
  • Horner App – the first automation app to give customers the ability to access all WebOCS enabled controllers with their iOS or Android phone or tablet

*WebMI and MQTT require a one-time license

User-Friendly Touch Screen HMI Operation Interface

  • 640×480 LCD TFT color graphics display with a high resolution resistive touchscreen
  • 5 function keys and a system key
  • USB 2.0 On-the-Go port (mini-B 5pin) is available for programming
  • USB 2.0 Host port (A) is available for exchanging files with USB FLASH drives
  • Two (2) RS-232 / RS-485 ports support RTU / Modbus Commander / Responder (Master/Slave), ASCII In/Out, and PLC / Drive downloadable protocols
Built-in Networking Features
  • logic engine features 1MB of application memory with a 0.02mS/K logic scan
  • online programming mode for making logic changes on the fly without going through stop mode
  • two built-in 10/100 Ethernet port
  • two integrated CAN ports that support CsCAN and either CANopen, J1939, or DeviceNet Scanner simultaneously
