What Makes the PFC100 Controller Successful
The PFC100 Controller can be seamlessly integrated into WAGO's e!COCKPIT Engineering Software, which can be used for hardware configurations, programming, simulations and visualization of complex control tasks. Tightly integrated automation software and controller hardware provide the ideal platform for advanced and intuitive CODESYS V3-based engineering. The controller supports protocols such as Modbus TCP Client/Server or open-source TCP/UDP communication. The serial interface also supports Modbus RTU as a client and server.
The features of the programmable logic controller are impressive: On the inside, PFC100 sports a 600 MHz Cortex A8 processor offering high processing performance for this controller class. Depending on the model, the controller boasts two ETHERNET interfaces, an RS-232/RS-485 interface or a DIP switch. The ETHERNET ports can also be used as ETHERNET switches to create a line topology. An additional advantage is that they can be configured individually (DUAL LAN), so that if necessary, two separate networks can be established using the controller. Larger image files can be stored on an SD card for Web visualization.
Both the PFC100 and WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM feature a compact design for an incredibly space-saving DIN-rail-mount installation. This minimizes control cabinet dimensions, saves costs by conserving installation space and enables complex systems to be built in a smaller footprint. The controller has its own Webserver for visualizations in HTML5. VPN links can be established directly from the controller. This reduces the need for additional investment costs.
Last but not least, WAGO's user-friendly controller is a smart solution that offers a high degree of investment security for long-term automation. Simple wiring and easily exchangeable I/O components are additional benefits that ensure short installation times while preventing unnecessary errors. The scalable I/O system enables the automation of individual machines all the way up to entire systems. A large selection of 500+ different I/O modules offers maximum flexibility and functional variety for easily adaptating to new or changing applications.
Protect your data from hackers and any other unauthorized access! Networking industrial systems via the Internet has made control systems more vulnerable to cyber attacks. The PFC100 offers comprehensive security packages including SSL/TLS, SSH, VPN and a firewall. This high level of protection allows the controller to mitigate the effects of an attack on machines and systems.
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.
All WAGO Controllers are compatible with the high-performing CODESYS industry standard. This enables software development in the IEC 61131-3 PLC programming languages (ST, FBD, LD, IL, SFC and CFC). As a trusted programming environment, CODESYS guides developers, enabling them to reuse and further develop existing programs without relearning software. This means that modern paradigms, such as Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), or modern visualization technologies are available.
