New Controllers Offer Fiber Optic Option

This content was submitted directly to this website by the supplier.


WAGO is adding three new IIoT-enabled Generation 2 PFC200 controllers to their 750 series.  These include a standard version for factory applications and two XTR versions for work in harsh environments. 

Each of these PLCs come with two standard RJ45 Ethernet ports and two 100 Mbit/s SFP slots for fiber optic modules.  These configurable ports can be used as a switch or with individual IP addresses and support MODBUS TCP/UDP, EtherNet/IP, OPCUA protocols with additional licenses supporting EtherCAT and Sparkplug. 

The fiber optic ports are beneficial where high electromagnetic interference is a concern or where long distance networking is needed.
