Secure Networking with Cloud Connectivity

It’s all about data: In the past, the technical data from the field made it through to the control levels at best. That’s changed now. Thanks to modern information technology, the most important information from production is no longer restricted to the classical automation pyramid, but is now available at any time and place. However, the technical conditions must be right for this. The WAGO PFC Controllers are equipped with cloud connectivity and transfer data to the WAGO Cloud – or to any other MQTT broker.

The benefits for you:

  • Connect the field level directly to the cloud
  • Expansion of existing systems with our PFC Controllers as an IoT gateway
  • Distributed data acquisition and visualization from anywhere
  • Connection to Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, IBM Cloud SAP Cloud or other MQTT brokers via standardized MQTT protocol
  • High level of security thanks to TLS encryption


Added Value for Your Company

Recording, digitizing and linking data profitably – this is the core concept behind Industry 4.0. As the interface between automation and information technology, cloud connectivity meets this challenge. Installed on the WAGO PFC Controllers, machine data can be transferred via MQTT to nearly any cloud, for example, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, IBM Cloud, SAP Cloud and last but not least WAGO Cloud, where the information can be aggregated and used for analysis. This capability creates true added value for your company – whether for increasing the efficiency of in-house production, implementing energy management or developing additional end-customer services.

Full Control at All Times

The cloud connection data is configured individually via the Web-Based Management of the WAGO Controller. Furthermore, with the corresponding IEC library from e!COCKPIT, you determine what information should be transferred to the cloud and what information should be processed locally on the controllers exclusively. This allows you to maintain complete control of your data at all times. Controller information, such as run/stop, connection status and device information can also be transferred to a cloud solution with cloud connectivity or distributed via MQTT broker. Cloud connectivity is included by default with PFC Controller Firmware 11 and above, and the required library has been included in e!COCKPIT since Version 1.4.
