Utility-Grade RTU for Telecontrol Applications

The WAGO RTU solutions use the modular WAGO I/O System, which has a long-standing record of success, as the platform. Thus, 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, taking into account the strictest security requirements for critical infrastructure applications (KRITIS).

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

750-890 Controller

The telecontrol technology controllers from the powerful 750-890 line 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 Controller

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.

Telecontrol Technology Protocols

Different configurations of the communication protocols are available depending on the engineering environment. Protocols can also be combined with each other (within the system limits); for instance, in order to implement various gateway functions:

Configurators and Programming

The telecontrol configurators are integrated directly in 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.

Simple RTU applications can also be very readily realized 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.

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

The WAGO Telecontrol Configurator is a 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 coupler
  • Send data from the WAGO I/O System digital and analog measurement module 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 prerequisite for safe, secure operation of telecontrol technology around the word – especially where the functionality of supply and distribution grids is concerned.

Therefore, we have verification for the three most important telecontrol protocols IEC 61850, IEC 60870 and DNP 3 and renew it regularly. So you can use WAGO Telecontrol Technology without any cares at all. The certified telecontrol protocols add an extra level of security whenever third-party components are integrated or attached to the WAGO telecontrol system.
