Open Automation with WAGO

Working Together to Benefit from the Best of All the Worlds of Modern Engineering.

In order to develop practical, future-oriented solutions in automation, we need consistent openness so we can build on the existing expertise of the relevant experts. This is best achieved by joining forces – which is why we developed a shared platform for IT and OT early on. On this platform, programmers from different disciplines can complement each other’s strengths and work to advance the Industrial IoT (IIoT).

Our open, Linux®-based automation platform provides easy access to state-of-the-art engineering at all automation levels – leaving users free to choose their preferred programming method.

Flexibility and openness are the most important drivers in automation: WAGO therefore relies on strong partnerships – because developing qualified solutions in Industry 4.0 can only succeed together.


PLC Programming

Our e!COCKPIT Engineering Software is ready for your PLC programming. It is based on the CODESYS V3 industry standard, which enables software development in the IEC 61131-3 PLC programming languages (ST, FBD, LD, IL, and SFC), as well as CFC. The trusted programming environment makes it easier for you to get started: Existing programs can be reused and further developed without learning new software. This allows you to use advanced paradigms like object-oriented programming (OOP) and modern visualization technologies.


Embedded Linux

The Linux® operating system on our PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers offer you, the user, a lean and secure operating system with numerous advantages. Since it is open source, you can adapt the source code to your requirements at any time. Furthermore, the operating system is subject to continuous optimization by the active open source community, keeping you both current and ready to adapt to what’s next – especially when it comes to security.
