The IoT Controller: A Plug-In Makes WAGO Controllers IoT-Ready

The IoT Controller: A Plug-In Makes WAGO Controllers IoT-Ready

Using a simple MQTT software upgrade, any WAGO PFC can be transformed into an IoT controller with cloud connectivity.

Recording data, digitizing them and linking them to one another in a profitable way – these are the central concepts behind Industry 4.0. A simple upgrade transforms the WAGO PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers into IoT controllers that transmit data from the field level to the cloud, where they can be aggregated and used for analyses. This creates true value added for your company – be it for enhancing efficiency in in-house production, for energy management in buildings, or for development of further end customer services. Existing systems can also be made IoT-ready, making them sustainable and future-oriented. WAGO's PCF controller generation therefore forms the basis for a sustainable corporate world.

Your Benefits at a Glance

  • Distributed data acquisition and visualization independent of location
  • Linking to Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services or IBM Bluemix using a standardized MQTT protocol
  • High level of security, thanks to TLS encryption
  • Direct linking of the field level to a cloud
  • Expansion of existing systems with the PFC as an IoT gateway
  • Available for all PFCs

Profiting from Flexibility

In just a few simple steps both WAGO PFC100 and PFC200 Controllers can be transformed into an IoT device – using a firmware upgrade and programming an IEC application with the corresponding library. After that, status information such as Run/Stop, connection statuses, device information and variables defined in the IEC program can be sent to a cloud and visualized, for example. The customer can decide whether the controller sends data to Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services or IBM Bluemix. Links to third-party solutions are also feasible in the future, thanks to the standardized MQTT protocol. The data is transmitted as JSON files and the link encrypted with TLS.

Simply Upgrade

The user can run the upgrade easily in the Web browser using WAGO's Web-Based Management (WBM) System. Libraries for CODESYS 2.3 and e!COCKPIT are also included in the scope of supply. The cloud connection data are also configured using WBM. Variables that are to be transferred to the cloud can be defined in the IEC program – so the programmer is always in control.

The MQTT software extension is available as a beta version for the PFC family from May 2017 upon request.
