Open Automation with WAGO

Are Openness and Security Mutually Exclusive? Quite the Contrary – See for Yourself

Digitization makes your machine, system and building data available anywhere in the world. To ensure the integrity of your information during Web attacks and Web transfers, it is necessary to protect it.
With our PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers, you’ll always be on the safe side. Learn how the controllers encrypt information directly in the controller and then transmit it to the cloud via IPsec or OpenVPN.

Cybersecurity Made by WAGO

For many years, machine data was only evaluated and used in the manufacturing facility in which it was generated. Thus, the risk of unauthorized data access was relatively low. Use of classic defense-in-depth measures ensured that machine data was well protected.

WAGO’s PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers encrypt information directly in the controller and subsequently transmit the data to the cloud via IPsec or OpenVPN. This ensures that machine data is optimally protected against unauthorized access.

Step-by-step to the solution:

  • Previously: Data remained in the manufacturing hall.
  • Digitization: Defense-in-depth carries risks.
  • The solution: Data encryption happens in the controller.

White Paper: IT Security in Production Facilities

Cyber attacks on automation systems and critical infrastructure are increasing. How can companies protect effectively against cyber attacks?

Our white paper “IT Security in Production Facilities – An Introduction for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises” has answers. Read about how you can achieve optimal protection of your systems with an integrated approach with “defense in depth.”

The core content of the white paper includes:

  • Standards that play a role in the area of IT security
  • Ten point plan for protection against cyber attacks
  • Requirements on future automation systems

Integrated Firewall Comes Standard in the PFC100 and PFC200

Increased networking has triggered rising concerns about IT security. Therefore, machine manufacturers and operators are intensifying their efforts to protect their own machine data.

WAGO’s PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers come with an integrated firewall that protects against unauthorized network access.

The benefits for you:

  • Support for all relevant secure data exchange protocols: SNMP v3, SFTP, FTPS, HTTPS and SSH
  • Other protocols supported: DHCP, DNS, FTP, TELNET and Modbus TCP/UDP
  • Integrated firewall comes standard, with pre-configured rules for configuration of whitelisting/blacklisting or MAC filters
  • Option of controller setup according to the requirements stated in the BDEW (Federal Association of Energy and Water Industries) white paper and the BSI-IT (Federal Office for Information Security) security catalog

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.
