WAGO Expands Performance Class PLC line
By Mario Cywinski
WAGO has expanded its line of performance class PLCs with the addition of nine new PFC200 controllers. The new controllers offer increased processor speed, more onboard memory, as well as offering gateways between multiple industrial fieldbuses and enable data transfer with cloud services and SCADA via the MQTT protocol.
An onboard web server enables dynamic HTML5 visualizations that can be used by operators and maintenance personnel for system operation. A built-in firewall and VPN help deploy defense-in-depth strategies without additional components.
Controllers are programmed with WAGO’s e!COCKPIT software tool and are ideal for OEM-based applications.
