WAGO in the VDMA Working Group

WAGO is a member of the VDMA working group "MTP in shipbuilding", a working group that was formed as an industry initiative from the VDMA exchange of experiences regarding "ship automation". MTP (Module Type Package) describes the standardization of communication between systems and the control level in order to reduce complexity for everyone involved. In addition to the process and manufacturing industries, the technology is also used extensively in shipbuilding.
