WAGO IoT Box

Ready-to-Use Solutions for Industry 4.0

The WAGO IoT Box is the perfect solution for connecting new and existing systems.

Integrating machines and systems into the “Internet of Things” ” is incredibly simple with WAGO’s IoT Box. The complete system is ready for immediate use and offers all the functions required for digitalization from signal acquisition to cloud connectivity. The IoT Box was designed as a plug-and-play device – no hardware engineering is needed. Collected data is transferred to the desired IoT application with just a few parameter settings. The hardware includes a controller with its own communication interface, I/O modules with analog and digital inputs/outputs, and a 24 V power supply unit. Depending on the application, additional I/O modules, including a 3-phase power measurement module, can be added later to adapt the system to specific requirements. Additional options include a protocol gateway to various fieldbus and control protocols or the evaluation and pre-processing of data using PLC functionality and/or applications under Linux®

Benefits

  • Ready to use
  • Hardware/software expandable and customer-specific adaptable
  • Flexible connection via ETHERNET, WLAN or mobile network

WAGES Monitoring for Manufacturers: Enhancing Efficiency and Sustainability with the WAGO IoT Box

In today's competitive manufacturing landscape, plant managers strive to enhance efficiency and drive down costs. The key to powering manufacturing operations lies in effectively managing WAGES (Water, Air, Gas, Electricity, and Steam). By optimizing resource utilization, manufacturers can unlock a range of benefits, including cost reduction, improved quality control, and predictive equipment maintenance.

Reliable, Flexible, Secure

Connect Machines, Systems and Buildings

The company of the future will be one thing above all else: thoroughly networked. Anything that’s not connected to the IT system must be connected sooner or later, especially production. Many companies are not ready for this – and their machines and systems are inherently unable to transmit data. This is the key point where the WAGO IoT Box comes into play.

The IoT Box is a completely ready-made solution, which can be docked to existing machines retroactively, with no need to interrupt the production process. Due to the open automation technology, the IoT Box is universal and ideal for recording current, voltage, production cycles and system statuses, among other things.

Various options are available for connecting to the company’s IT infrastructure: Ethernet or WLAN connection, or completely location-independent access via the mobile communication network. The necessary security is provided not only by the separation between the IT and OT networks, but also by further measures such as TLS encryption and VPN tunneling, which are built right into the PFC controllers.

TTS Automation

Automated Loading Documentation

It’s uncommon to find systems in production plants that combine the three different worlds smoothly. A project by WAGO and TTS-Automation shows exactly how providing an open control and protocol landscape can achieve this. This project combines the IT environment, process technology and logistics to implement an efficient, safe, well-documented loading processes.

TTS Automation

Safe Filling in Hazardous Areas

As a solution provider for explosion-proof cameras in process and system monitoring, TTS Automation has developed a system for safe loading processes. The intelligent industrial camera allows tank loading processes to be monitored and anomalies detected early. As an intelligent interface for image analysis, TTS relies on the IoT Box from WAGO.
