Product News: WAGO PFC200 controllers

Feb. 26, 2021
The new controllers offer fiber-optic options.
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.
