At the Center of it All: WAGO Cloud

The most important foundation for sustainable corporate behavior? Comprehensive information from all business divisions – from sales and purchasing, as well as production as the central part of the value-added chain. Up-to-date data from your machines, systems and processes is the essential prerequisite for implementing future technological changes and puts you one step ahead of the competition. Open automation technology from WAGO provides this information. WAGO Cloud allows access to it worldwide.

Maximum Availability, Minimum Effort

Increasing digitization is bringing automation and information technology closer together. This presents companies with great challenges – after all, not every small or medium-sized business is willing or able to maintain its own IT department. WAGO allows automation engineers to continue to focus on automation.

WAGO Cloud gives you the option of collecting data from various machines and systems in a central location and analyzing it. Furthermore, you can manage and monitor all WAGO controllers, including your data and application, on a PC, in a conference room or on a tablet while traveling. With simple, user-friendly operation, the WAGO Cloud was developed so that people without extensive IT experience can use it.

WAGO Cloud is based on the established Microsoft Azure cloud platform. That has numerous advantages for you: Microsoft Azure is highly scalable in terms of computing power, data storage, transactions, availability and security standards, so it represents a future-proof solution.

Overview of the Most Important Functions

Analyze data centrallyYour measured data can be represented graphically with the push of a button, for example as trend graphs, bar charts or pointer elements. This gives you a central overview of the information on all machines and systems.
Remote monitoringAccess to local configurations and visualizations of the PFC Controllers occurs through secure WAGO Cloud remote access. This allows you to control and monitor your production machines and systems from anywhere.
Always up-to-dateLoad applications, as well as the newest firmware, onto any number of PFC Controllers simultaneously with a few mouse clicks. You decide whether future software updates should be performed from the WAGO Cloud or manually on site.
Manage PFC ControllersConnect the PFC Controllers to WAGO Cloud within a few minutes and associate them with customers, sites and systems, for example. This allows you to manage the technical components of your decentralized automation.
Keep an eye on all your machinesSpecify alarm rules for controllers, connection statuses and applications individually. In the event of overrun or underrun of the specified limiting values, you receive an email notification immediately.
Export data flexiblyThe content from WAGO Cloud is available to you in other programs as well. You can use RESTful API, CSV and other export options to convert the data to the necessary format – manually or automatically.
Manage users and authorizationsEmployees with different kinds of know-how need different access rights. You decide who gets what WAGO Cloud permissions. Powerful user management supports you in the process.
