WAGO I/O System Advanced

“Time-Sensitive Networking” (TSN) is the forward-looking technology for end-to-end, flexible, powerful and secure networking of machines and systems. The I/O System Advanced, our brand new “made for TSN” automation solution, allows you to raise your industrial automation to a new level.

The Benefits for You:
  • An open, innovative and future-proof automation system for mechanical engineering
  • The I/O System Advanced combines the proven benefits and functionality of the 750 Series with outstanding performance and an ergonomic mechanical design that help prevent errors.
  • The new WAGO PFC200 Controller combines the many possibilities of PFC technology with the I/O System Advanced.
  • High performance, short reaction times and a high level of synchronicity for connection to various fast ETHERNET fieldbuses

WAGO at Work


Connectivity and speed are the foundations of modern production facilities. With the I/O System Advanced, WAGO has developed a solution that allows you to easily meet all of the requirements on upgradable automation systems. The fast new IP20 I/O-System puts a face on trending topics such as OPC UA and TSN – and gives you the ability to set new standards.

Top Performance and Functional Design

As a gateway to the universal WAGO 750 Series I/O System, the new I/O System Advanced combines the proven benefits and functionality of the 750 Series with a fresh and ergonomic design, mechanical features that help prevent errors and outstanding performance. The results: short reaction times, high signal transmission synchronicity and, in future, the ability to use fast ETHERNET fieldbuses (e.g., PROFINET, EtherCAT® and Ethernet/IP) – all of which make the I/O System Advanced the new benchmark for high-end industrial automation systems.

“Made for TSN”

Industrial communication must be fast, real-time capable and standardized if production facilities are to be ready for the future. “Time-Sensitive Networking” (TSN) is the key to this, since it presents the prospect of significantly increasing performance for individual networks. It also provides the basis for direct communication from the field level with each device on other levels, while no longer needing to access gateways or completely revamp communication technologies. TSN becomes even more effective in combination with OPC UA. Together, they enable equipment, machines and system parts to describe themselves, understand each other and configure themselves automatically, for example. This in turn is necessary in order for the modular approach to mechanical engineering to really take off.

» With this new and incredibly fast IP20 I/O system, we’re putting a face on technologies such as OPC UA and TSN.

Proven PFC Technology

With the debut of I/O System Advanced, WAGO is also relaunching the PFC200 Controller, which is based on industry-proven PFC technology, with a new matching exterior design. This further development will make it as easy as possible for customers to get started with the new system. The new controller forms a bridge to various technologies via the Linux® operating system and Docker virtualization (IT), as well as to OT technologies thanks to the IEC 61131 runtime system. Sending data to the cloud and leveraging all the benefits of cloud computing are simple thanks to a large number of interfaces and the highest cybersecurity standards.


Maximum Independence and Flexibility

Users can benefit from all of these advantages without investing significant time or money. The I/O System Advanced supports well-known PFC functionalities and CODESYS-based programming via the e!COCKPIT Engineering Software. In addition, this gateway to the universal 750 Series I/O System allows all 500+ modules to be directly connected, maximizing the return on investment.

» This further development of our proven PFC technology enables our customers to get into the new system as simply as possible. «
