What Makes the PFC200 Controller Successful
Use Applications More Quickly with Docker
Docker container technology speeds up software development, testing and deployment, since its handling is based on the behavior of apps. WAGO’s line of PFC200 Controllers now makes it possible to exploit these advantages on an embedded platform. In order to be able to react cost-efficiently to ever shorter product cycles in production, production must be networked and become more flexible and agile. Software is required to support factories in meeting new production requirements. However, the preparations for development, testing, delivery and distribution are anything but easy, especially on embedded platforms: Installing and configuring the programs is often laborious, which takes time and slows the digital transformation in companies.
The PFC200 XTR variants can also be used as telecontrollers. In addition to the IEC 60870-5-101, 103, -104, IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25 telecontrol protocols, they also support the DNP3 communication standard. Even the interfaces are compelling: The controller is available in two versions with different numbers of communication interfaces – either two ETHERNET connections and an RS-232/RS-485 interface or two ETHERNET connections, RS-232/RS-485, CAN, CANopen and PROFIBUS DP slave interfaces.
Retrofit BACnet Functionality
BACnet/IP Firmware Extension for PFC200 and Touch Panels 600
BACnet is one of the most commonly used communication protocols used in building automation. Recognizing this, WAGO is now offering a firmware extension for its range of PFC200 Controllers and Touch Panels 600; the extension can be used to activate existing devices by licensing for BACnet/IP.
This addition allows a large number of BACnet objects to be automated with just one PFC200 Controller or Touch Panel 600. With the powerful Linux®-based Touch Panels and BACnet licenses, control and visualization of larger building automation projects can be implemented on a single device. The devices act as BACnet Building Controllers (BBCs) per BACnet Revision 14. The BTL listing means that they meet the typical requirements found within tenders. WAGO offers two different licenses: One supplies up to 256 BACnet objects, and the other has no limitations.
PFC200 Controllers Now with Four ETHERNET Ports
Two Additional Interfaces Offer More Connectivity and Additional Freedom
The latest generation of WAGO's PFC200 Controllers now provides up to four separately configurable ETHERNET ports, allowing the implementation of applications with high connectivity demands. The networks on the ports can be freely configured. This means that the controller can be integrated into a large-scale network and a smaller local network at the same time, with two ports each. The possibilities range from connecting to four different networks to connecting all four ports with other switches. This flexibility can prevent using an additional switch in the control cabinet, which is often the case.
Integrated firewall functionality ensures high security in local networks. The four interfaces on the PFC200 are designed as 100BASE-TX ports with RJ-45 sockets. All common ETHERNET protocols are supported. Typical applications for the PFC200 can be found in machinery and equipment control, in the process industry and in building automation. The powerful controller works with the real-time capable Linux® as its operating system and can be programmed with the IEC 61131-3 languages.
