Industry 4.0

Cloud Connectivity

Adaptable Production

Integrated Engineering

From the Cloud to New Business Models

Cloud and Big Data open up new possibilities for manufacturers and lay the groundwork for promising business models. However, existing data records need to be lifted. WAGO's Cloud Connectivity solutions are the foundation for this. They are the right choice for linking machine-to-machine communication, as well as networking machines with the entire organization in order to process and analyze newly gained information density. Finally, the evaluation and usage of data is increasingly becoming competitive advantage.

With Excellent Methodology to Lot Size 1

Adaptable production processes are the key to flexibility, efficiency and lot size 1. In order to realize them, production modules must be flexible and not tied to any one manufacturer. This places special demands on the automation system and communication. WAGO has solved this with DIMA and has earned the Industrie 4.0 Innovation Award from VDE Verlag and ZVEI.

DIMA makes possible what modular system operators have wished for years: Coupling and uncoupling modules within a control system – without programming. This solution allows modules to be integrated into an application and working in less than three minutes.

From Engineering to the Finished Product

In the industries of the future, ordering and production processes will be increasingly digitalized and automated. The goal: consistency and data transparency along the entire value-added chain in order to reduce costs and times and prevent unnecessary added expense. To support this horizontal integration, WAGO's solution is smartDATA, an engineering service that assists users from planning and designing through engineering up to testing and commissioning.

IT SECURITY

Ultimately, production data are a valuable asset that must be well protected. Internet of Things (IoT) applications demand reliable automation technology solutions – like WAGO's.

+ Previously

Data remained in the manufacturing hall

For a long time, machine data were only evaluated and used in the manufacturing facility in which they were generated. Thus, the risk of undesired data access was relatively low. By establishing classic defense in depth measures, the machine data were well protected.

+ Digitalization

Defense in Depth represents risks

The continuing digitalization requires constant availability of data at various locations. Therefore, machine data must be encrypted. The path of the data from the controller to an external encryption component, like a router or firewall, can, however, be exposed to the risk of undesired data access.

+ The solution

Dataencryption in the controller

The WAGO PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers encrypt information directly in the controller and subsequently transmit the data to the cloud via IPsec or OpenVPN. Machine data are thus optimally secured from undesired data access (see also pages 36 and 37).

Integrated Energy

Intelligent Networks

Energy Storage Facilities

Cloud Solutions

Efficiently Automate Energy networks

WAGO controllers can play a key role in the conversion of the energy networks into smart grids. As a core component of intelligent local area networks (iONS), they provide important network data and thus allow the network operators to access automation as required. In virtual power plants, the VHPready (Virtual Heat and Power) communication standard ensures smooth interaction of these systems. In the field of gas and heat supply, WAGO technology allows control and access to all data of the systems connected in the networks from any connected location.

Intelligently Control Power Storage Units

Storage units can compensate for fluctuating green electricity generation caused by the weather, thereby relieving the electricity supply. WAGO's remote control technology is at the heart of everything. It records all measured values, such as the feed-in data of solar plants or wind turbines, and enables the monitoring and customer-specific control of the storage.

Securely Archive, Analyze and Visualize Network Data

Because the expansion of renewable energies will make the flow of energy more complex and generate more and more data, cloud-based software solutions are becoming increasingly important for analyzing the network state. The PFC controllers provide all the necessary measured values and, as full-fledged Linux computers, ensure that they are transmitted to the computer cloud in accordance with the highest security requirements.

Measurement System with Added Value

Transparent data is the cornerstone of every efficiency improvement initiative. Only with this data can savings potentials be identified, improvements addressed and measures taken for predictive maintenance. The WAGO Energy Management system, consisting of software in combination with a modular control system, offers a solution. It collects data from various media, influences variables for energy monitoring and processes them for further analysis, archiving and reporting. The software automatically detects different signals from the connected meters and sensors.
