WAGO Edge Controller and Computer

Digitalization in this global economy has become necessary for modern manufacturing facilities. Companies are leveraging Cloud services to optimize their production systems. Real-time data collection, an important part of this process, can be a daunting process. However, with WAGO's Edge Controller and Edge Computer, engineers can break down this task into small manageable work cells.

By combining the attributes of deterministic real-time PLC control with data mediation and the storage of a PC, WAGO's Edge Devices are the duality of today's smart connected world. As a gateway between industrial networks, SCADA systems and Cloud services, these devices connect people from the enterprise to the plant floor.

Easy Cloud Connection

Collected data can be evaluated directly, displayed graphically and made available to WAGO cloud, for example. Transfer may be appropriate for especially critical data, for instance. Both of the new devices have additional advantages when data needs to be buffered temporarily, for instance in mobile applications. They are based on cabinet-compatible hardware, can be powered with 24 V and thus fit perfectly into the automation environment.

Equipped for High Security

A TPM 2.0 chip allows an encryption mechanism to be used to ensure data security. A large proportion of the software on the devices is open-source, so they are always equipped with the best software technology, since the large open-source community is continually reviewing the source code and providing bugfixes. Besides the standard VPN applications, the devices are open for special security solutions such as Tosibox and Hooc. Thus, in addition to WAGO’s own VPN solution, users can also access other remote maintenance solutions with a high degree of security, in line with the #openandeasy principle.

WAGO Edge Controller

The Edge Controller features an ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor and offers an extensive selection of interfaces, including two ETHERNET ports, one CANopen port and two USB ports. It also has a serial interface and four digital inputs/outputs for connecting local devices or sensors.

The Benefits for You:

  • Easy integration into existing systems
  • Space-saving installation
  • The possibility of project configuration in the familiar e!COCKPIT environment

WAGO Edge Computer

Where demands on computing power and memory are high, WAGO offers the perfect solution with the Edge Computer. It features a 1.91 GHz quad-core Atom processor and is equipped with standard Debian Linux. Users can draw on abundandt resources and model entire automation processes on them.

WAGO also offers an Edge Computer (752-9800) equipped with a dual-core i7 Intel processor, 16GB RAM and 256GB flash for running powerful applications in Docker Containers for increased plant floor performance. This computer is ideal for Linux users who want an industrial grade computer running applications such as Node Red, Grafana, AI, digital twins and so much more.

The Benefits for You:

  • Features high computing power and scalable storage
  • Compact and low-maintenance
  • Allows use of standard software

What are EDGE devices and how can they help your business?

Cloud

Do you want to use your machines, systems and building data for monitoring and analysis in the cloud? Take advantage of our open solutions for an easy and secure connection. In a few steps, you have a site-independent overview of all the relevant information and can identify opportunities for optimization and initiate changes directly. You alone decide which cloud system to send your data to via MQTT – for example, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, IBM Cloud or SAP Cloud.
