WAGO Edge Controller and Computer

Optimal Data Use in the Field

Intelligent processes are requiring more and more computing power, and this places corresponding demands on databases directly in the field. WAGO offers the right hardware for any edge application.

Where real-time data is involved, data processing is becoming more and more important. More and more computing power is needed, and this places corresponding demands on databases, as well as analysis and optimization algorithms, directly in the field. WAGO offers solutions in the form of the Edge Controller and Edge Computer. These devices process applications right on the machine, taking the pressure off the controllers so they can focus on their actual control duties with low latency and a high level of determinism.

Easy Cloud Connection

Collected data can be evaluated directly, displayed graphically and made available to WAGO cloud, for example. Transfer may be appropriate for especially critical data, for instance. Both of the new devices have additional advantages when data needs to be buffered temporarily, for instance in mobile applications. They are based on cabinet-compatible hardware, can be powered with 24 V and thus fit perfectly into the automation environment.

Equipped for High Security

A TPM 2.0 chip allows an encryption mechanism to be used to ensure data security. A large proportion of the software on the devices is open-source, so they are always equipped with the best software technology, since the large open-source community is continually reviewing the source code and providing bugfixes. Besides the standard VPN applications, the devices are open for special security solutions such as Tosibox and Hooc. Thus, in addition to WAGO’s own VPN solution, users can also access other remote maintenance solutions with a high degree of security, in line with the #openandeasy principle.

WAGO Edge Controller

The Edge Controller features an ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor and offers an extensive selection of interfaces, including two ETHERNET ports, one CANopen port and two USB ports. It also has a serial interface and four digital inputs/outputs for connecting local devices or sensors.

The Benefits for You:

  • Easy integration into existing systems
  • Space-saving installation
  • The possibility of project configuration in the familiar e!COCKPIT environment
