Open Automation with WAGO

For Easy Connection to the World of the Industrial IoT

The basis of successful digitization and automation is a comprehensively networked infrastructure in which all the data is integrated into the IT. To ensure successful conversion of data to digitized, networked processes, we’ve developed an open automation platform for easy connection of both new and existing technologies.

Under the motto “open to the Industrial IoT,” our components’ connectivity options go beyond the field level and build a bridge to the IT infrastructure. This allows smooth, continuous communication from the field level to the cloud.


PFC Controllers

Optimal performance and availability: Thanks to top performance, low power consumption, numerous interfaces, a compact design and a high degree of safety, our user-friendly controllers (PLCs) offer cost-efficient automation solutions.


WAGO Touch Panel 600

The WAGO TouchPanel 600’s control panels allow simultaneous control and visualization. With the right library, control panels also become IoT controllers that can send data from the field level to the cloud.



The WAGO IoT Box is an open, ready-made solution for connecting existing machines, equipment and properties to IT systems. It can be linked to WAGO Cloud and serve as a gateway for existing production systems.


Cloud Connectivity

Via the MQTT protocol, you can connect data directly to WAGO Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, SAP Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud and other MQTT brokers.


WAGO Cloud

WAGO Cloud lets you collect and analyze machine data from a central location. Its simple, user-friendly operating concept has been developed even for users without IT expertise.


Cloud Integration

WAGO Cloud can be connected via APIs (interfaces) to other cloud platforms, such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and the SAP Cloud Platform, allowing the data you collect – using WAGO’s IoT Box, for example – to be passed directly to existing cloud applications.



Connecting WAGO IoT products for manufacturing allows you to use machine data easily and directly – whether in WAGO Cloud or in existing customer applications on other cloud platforms.

WAGO Cloud

WAGO Cloud allows you to collect and analyze data from different machines and systems in a central location. In addition, you can manage and monitor all your WAGO controllers, including your data and applications. With its simple, user-friendly operating concept, WAGO Cloud was developed for users without extensive IT know-how.

Cloud Connectivity

It’s all about data: In the past, technical data from the field only made it as far the control and management level at best. The situation is different now – thanks to modern information technology, important information from production is no longer limited to the conventional automation pyramid and is available anytime and anywhere. However, this has certain technical requirements. The WAGO PFC Controllers and Touch Panels 600 feature cloud connectivity and transfer data to WAGO Cloud – or any other MQTT broker.



With the IoT Box, WAGO takes the first step, offering an easy-to-use, practical solution with concrete added value. The box is universal and ideal for machine, device and property connection, as well as asset management. It is completely pre-assembled in a solid housing and equipped with WAGO’s pioneering automation technology.

Distribution Network in Real Time

SWO Netz GmbH, an incorporation of the Osnabrück municipal utility, is preparing for electrical distribution in the future by establishing a cloud project. The company, which is based in Lower-Saxony, uses WAGO technology to manage and analyze their data.

Digitization as the Basis for Sector Coupling

Sector coupling, digitization and customer centricity – these are the cores of energy service provider Avacon Natur’s business! All of this increases the efficiency of power plants and district heating networks and provides information as needed. Above all, sector coupling – integrated control for heat, electricity and electromobility – requires digital data acquisition.
