As their platform, WAGO’s Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) solutions use the modular WAGO I/O System, which has a long record of success on the market. For this purpose, special telecontrol protocols (IEC 61850, IEC 60870, DNP3, Modbus®) were added to the scalable-performance controllers. In combination with the option of IEC-61131-3 programming, this allows all tasks – both telecontrol communication tasks and station automation tasks – to be handled flexibly and, above all, easily.

International approvals guarantee continuous operation under the most challenging environmental conditions. The Linux® operating system ensures maximum flexibility along with long-term availability of the automation solution. The strictest security requirements for critical infrastructure applications are also included.

The system’s flexible communication and programming properties, combined with a comprehensive portfolio of I/O interfaces and programming libraries, offer unparalleled openness for automating solutions across industries – particularly for electrical distribution networks, water resource management, oil and gas and infrastructure projects.

Controller, Item No. 750-890

The 750-890 Telecontrol Technology Controllers are compact controllers that can be programmed with CODESYS V2.3 and configured for telecontrol applications. The lean operating system offers an excellent price–performance ratio.

PFC200 Controllers

The PFC200 performance class contains devices that can be programmed and configured with CODESYS V2.3 or with e!COCKPIT (CODESYS V3-based). That makes them an excellent choice for future-proof migration solutions.

The second-generation PFC200 Controllers have received an upgrade. Some controllers of this generation can only be programmed with e!COCKPIT; telecontrol functions can be easily extended through a software license (“DRM”).

The Linux® operating system makes it possible to implement comprehensive cybersecurity measures or use your own Linux® MicroServices or IoT connections with the PFC200.

Configurators and Programming

The telecontrol configurators are integrated directly into the CODESYS V2.3 and e!COCKPIT engineering environment.

After convenient configuration of the desired telecontrol application, the corresponding code is automatically generated for the controller.

Now it is possible to program gateway functions or additional logic per IEC 61131-3, such as a supply controller with a TÜV-certified library.

The integrated Web visualization is ready for diagnostics and/or configurations.

Implementation of simple RTU(Remote Terminal Unit) applications is also very convenient with the new stand-alone telecontrol configurator. This means communication objects can be quickly and easily created and mapped to the existing I/O datapoints – without any complex engineering tools.

CODESYS V2.3: Configuring Telecontrol Stations (Remote Terminal Unit) and Programming Applications

CODESYS V2.3 is an engineering tool based on IEC 61131 3 for creating control configurations, control logic and visualizations. The configurations for telecontrol technology are already integrated.

The Benefits for You:

  • An engineering tool for ETHERNET controllers and PFC200
  • Integration of IEC 60870-5 (client/server), DNP3 (master, outstation), IEC 61850 (Client/Server/GOOSE)

e!COCKPIT: CODESYS Configuring Telecontrol Stations (Remote Terminal Unit) and Programming Applications

e!COCKPIT is based on CODESYS V3 and links the IEC 61131-3 editors with a powerful visualization and a modern control configuration with topology views. The configurations for telecontrol technology are already integrated.

The Benefits for You:

  • HTML5-based visualization
  • Integration of IEC 60870-5 (client/server), DNP3 (master, outstation), IEC 61850 client

e!COCKPIT: WAGO Telecontrol Configurator: Easy Telecontrol Station (RTU) Configuration

The WAGO Telecontrol Configurator is stand-alone software that makes configuring and operating your telecontrol station (RTU) easier. The telecontrol configurator cannot further process the data in the decentralized telecontrol station (RTU) with this software.

The Benefits for You:

  • Easy commissioning of an RTU(Remote Terminal Unit) coupler
  • Send data from the WAGO I/O System’s digital and analog measurement modules to a DNP3 or IE-C60870-5-101-/-104 control system (monitoring direction)
  • Both analog and digital data transfer from the control system to the I/O module (command direction)

Certificates and Approvals

Valid approvals and certifications are required for safe, secure operation of telecontrol technology around the word – especially where the functionality of supply and distribution grids is concerned.

That’s why we have certificates for the three most important telecontrol protocols, IEC 61850, IEC 60870 and DNP 3, and renew them regularly, so you can use WAGO telecontrol technology with confidence. The certified telecontrol protocols add an extra level of security whenever third-party components are connected to or incorporated into the WAGO telecontrol system.

RTU(Remote Terminal Unit) Applications


Whether electrical power, gas, water or heat: Due to the increasing decentralization of energy generation and integrated grids, as well as sector coupling, data transfer volumes and communication challenges are growing. As a telecontrol technology supplier, WAGO has just the solution – secure, economical and primed for the future.

Reliable Telecontrol Technology

The world’s fossil fuel supply is finite, and global warming is already well underway. Failure is not an option for the energy transition. Telecontrol technology will play a special role in the implementation, since the electricity, gas, water and heat infrastructures in particular involve spread-out service areas and remote stations.
