WAGO PFC200 Controllers with New EtherCAT® Master Functional Range
Now incorporating EtherCAT® capability, WAGO has significantly increased the application scope for its second generation of PFC200 Controllers. Fundamentally revised for extended capability, fieldbus configuration represents a tremendous advantage for programmers.
It was important for the developers to support the EtherCAT® fieldbus, which significantly increases the number of field devices that can be addressed and widens the PFC200 Controller’s application range. The new version now allows any EtherCAT® slave to be integrated into a PFC200-based control system. With the ability to comprehensively configure the fieldbus, the PFC200’s new developments represent a tremendous innovation: Programmers can specify which bus system should be supported with their existing hardware – nothing new is required.
Anticipated availability: March 2019
