At the Embedded World 2018 event in Nuremberg, Germany, Wago showcased its PFC100 and PFC200 controllers. Highlighting the industry trend toward openness in automation, these controllers feature a Linux operating system so that they can be programmed using a variety of languages—from IEC 61131 to Python to C/C++. The controller can also be used as an Industrial Internet of Things gateway with its openVPN, IPSec and Transport Layer Security as well as a built-in firewall. Widely used protocols such as OPC-UA and MQTT are also supported. See the video below featuring Andreas Halter of Wago speaking about Wago’s exhibition at the annual Embedded World event and its highlighting of the PFC controllers there.
