Reliable under Extremes: PFC200 XTR Controller

The PFC200 XTR Controller for extreme environments and Ex areas: Engineering, controlling and visualizing where other controllers fail!

With the PFC200 XTR Controller, WAGO offers a rugged device that is second to none and excels in extreme environments. Requiring no additional protective equipment, the controller defies temperature fluctuations of −40 to +70°C (−40 ... +158°F), has extreme resistance to impulse voltage up to 5 kV, is immune to interference and vibration-proof up to 5g. Thanks to the e!RUNTIME environment based on CODESYS V3 and the real-time-capable Linux® operating system, this PLC is the efficient control system for your automation tasks. This includes locations that demand more than a typical automation system can provide.

Your benefits:

  • Linux® real-time operating system
  • Runtime system for CODESYS 2 and e!COCKPIT (CODESYS 3)
  • Telecontrol protocols
  • Comprehensive range of XTR components for extreme environments

What Makes the PFC200 XTR Controller Successful

Extremely Rugged

The PFC200 XTR is unfazed by both freezing cold down to −40°C and scorching heat up to +70°C (−40 ... +158°F). The maximum approved operating altitude of 5,000 m is another highlight. Even in the thin air of a high mountain station, the system impressively demonstrates its high performance and availability. The PFC200 XTR provides greater immunity to impulse voltages up to 5 kV, lower EMC emission of interference and higher insensitivity to EMC interference, ensuring trouble-free operation in virtually any application.

Embedded Linux

Embedded Linux is available for users who are ready to take complete control and prefer directly using a lean and secure operating system. This real-time Linux® software provides a wide range of advantages, including the flexibility of using open-source code that adapts the source code to a user's specific needs at any time. Another huge advantage: Extend the functionality of your control application on the PFC200 by integrating open source packages or with external CODESYS libraries in the base image.

CODESYS 2 and 3

Thanks to the e!RUNTIME environment based on CODESYS 3 and the real-time-capable Linux® operating system, this PLC is the efficient control system for your automation tasks. This includes locations that demand more than a typical automation system can provide. The PFC200 XTR Controller also stands apart because it packs dual operating systems. Choose to use the e!COCKPIT engineering software based on CODESYS 3 or WAGO-I/O-PRO based on CODESYS 2 to design your projects.

Telecontrol Protocols

The PFC200 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 PLC 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.

Applications

Marine and Onshore/Offshore Automation

Use in these areas requires assessment and qualification by independent classification societies (e.g., ABS, GL, LR). More than half of the 20 tests administered apply to EMC. The results achieved from these tests permit operation on marine diesels exposed to vibrations and in the EMC-sensitive area of a vessel’s bridge (compass approval). Of course, they are also suitable for other industries – at no additional cost.

Process Automation

Protecting people, a clean environment and safe, trouble-free plant operation are particularly important to this sector. The possibility of use in hazardous locations is also a frequent requirement in the chemical, energy, gas and oil industries. The WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM is suitable for use in Zone 2 in order to process field signals in Zone 1 and Zone 0 via intrinsically safe I/O modules.

Energy Grids (Telecontrol Technology)

The main objective of the power generation and distribution industry is ensuring reliable, safe power supply. With an extensive product portfolio, WAGO offers customers a broad spectrum of application possibilities. These include automating energy generation plants and energy distribution to safe remote solutions, as well as energy monitoring and control with I/O components for current and energy measurement technology.
