The best preparation for the energy market requirements of the future. Select controllers support the IEC 60870-5-101, -103 and -104 telecontrol protocols, as well as the 61850-7, 61400-25 and DNP3 protocols for a wireless (GPRS) or wired (via ETHERNET) connection with the control system.
Recording, digitizing and linking data profitably – these are the core ideas of Industry 4.0. A simple software upgrade transforms WAGO’s PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers into IoT controllers that transmit data from the field level to the cloud.
Embedded Linux is available for users who prefer to use a lean, secure operating system directly. This real-time Linux® provides a wide range of advantages, including the flexibility of being able to adapt open-source code to your specific needs at any time. In addition to being highly stable, this robust operating system also benefits from continuous optimization by the active open-source community, keeping you both up to date and ready to adapt to what’s next – especially when it comes to security.
Increased networking and nearly universal connection to the Internet are fueling the trend towards secure data storage and data transmission. In order to ensure information security and integrity during Web access and data transfers, the SSH and SSL/TLS encryption methods are integrated into the PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers for establishing secure HTTPS and FTPS connections. A firewall provides additional protection against unwanted access.
All WAGO controllers are equipped with the high-performance industry-standard CODESYS development environment. It allows software development in both IEC 61131-3 PLC programming languages (ST, FBD, LD, IL and SFC) and CFC. This proven programming environment makes it easier to get started and lets developers reuse and further develop existing programs without learning a new language. This makes it possible to use advanced paradigms like object-oriented programming (OOP) or modern visualization technologies.
