Digitization

On the Road to the Smart Factory with WAGO

In the future, production will be networked and intelligent; it will control and optimize itself, semi-autonomously, making it resource-efficient. For the transformation to an “intelligent factory,” the existing processes will be networked, and all products, machines and process data will be recorded. Automation solutions, such as the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750, are available for capturing and transferring data into a “Manufacturing Execution System” (MES) or product management system.

Control Cabinet Construction: from Project Planning to Commissioning

Ordering and production processes are becoming increasingly digital. The goal: Consistency and data transparency along the entire value-added chain in order to save time and lower costs. To support this horizontal integration, WAGO offers smartDATA Engineering, a solution that supports users from planning and design, to engineering, to testing and commissioning of their control cabinet.

WAGO Technology for Mechanical Engineering

Ever greater precision, ever higher speeds, ever greater flexibility – the demands in mechanical engineering are always increasing. At the same time, customization of machines and systems is constantly increasing manufacturing facilities. The right tools are essential. WAGO supplies the right products to help customers realize their projects, including our PROFINET fieldbus coupler and our e!DISPLAY.

Data Acquisition

Industry 4.0 and big data are opening up unexpected possibilities for new business models, so it is important to leverage valuable data collections. WAGO’s flexible and durable automation solutions reliably transfer data from the field level for use by the cloud or an MES without errors; existing systems can be retrofitted conveniently as well. Furthermore, various interfaces and fieldbuses, such as CANopen, PROFIBUS DP, DeviceNet and MODBUS-TCP, can also be utilized independently of the manufacturer.

Automated Production Technology

Automated production technology offers many advantages – from cost savings to optimized processes. Learn more about flexible control and WAGO's I/O modules in the video.

Emergency Lighting: Safe in Case of Emergency

If the power fails and the light goes out in your home, this may be very inconvenient, but it does not necessarily create a significant security risk. The situation is markedly different in a shopping center, in a cinema, at the airport or in a production facility – wherever large groups meet, a sudden lighting failure can quickly lead to critical situations. Even more dangerous is when there is a real emergency occurring at the same time, such as a fire or heavy smoke. In such cases, lighting must be used to ensure that all the people inside the building can find the quickest way out.

PROFINET Managed Switches for Industrial Automation

Three new PROFINET Switches join WAGO's line of industrial switches. Stemming from WAGO’s decades of industrial expertise and backed by the PROFINET CC-B certificate, these new switches can be reliably used in PROFINET networks. They offer both simple integration via device description files and optional cyclic diagnostics via PROFINET. Furthermore, the WAGO PROFINET Switches support the SNMP protocol, provide port speeds of 100 or 1000 Mbit/s and comply with the UL-61010 standard.

Zero Emissions, Doubly Safeguarded

Supported by the Arctic University of Norway in Narvik (UiT) and funded by the Norwegian government, the shipbuilders at Grovfjord Mekaniske Verksted (GMV) have developed an energy management system (EMS) for a zero-emission ship with an all-electric drive. This visionary project was realized with the help of WAGO, which contributed to the central automation.

Aquaculture Leaps into the Digital Age

The notion of the fisherman sailing off to the open seas is scarcely more than nostalgia. In the meantime, according to information from the wildlife and environmental protection organization, WWF, almost half of all fish consumed by humans comes from aquaculture, and the trend is increasing. Fish farmers do not rely on bait, but instead on digital data analysis in order to catch the fattest fish – and to keep their breeding stocks healthy and economically viable. WAGO technology is there to support them.

The Lake is Calm and Still

Embedded in a stunning, idyllic mountain setting, Lake Lucerne provides a traditional atmosphere with its fjord-like straights and winding inlets. Right in the middle of this beauty is a daily shipping route bearing tourists between Lucerne and other popular travel destinations, like Weggis and Bürgenstock. While it may sound less than idyllic, it actually boasts an intriguing eco-friendly twist. The MS Bürgenstock, the new motorized vessel belonging to the Lake Lucerne Navigation Company (SGV), sports a quiet and fuel-efficient hybrid drive. Aventics, a specialist of hybrid drive controls in ships headquartered in Laatzen, ensures optimum control between the electric motors and diesel engines. Several years ago, Aventics expanded their solutions by using the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750.
