WAGO Controller PFC200 with integrated 4G cellular modem for location-independent applications
The WAGO Controller PFC200 is now available with an integrated 4G cellular modem and can therefore also communicate in LTE networks. The further development of the tried and tested PFC200 makes automation solutions with a mobile network connection future-proof. The solution with control and cellular modem in one compact device not only saves space in the control cabinet, but also offers advantages with regard to cyber security – because the unnoticed exchange and manipulation of the modem are not possible. The new version of the PFC200 for LTE networks is particularly powerful. The Cortex-A8 CPU with 1 GHz offers sufficient computing power for complex control tasks. The PFC200 can connect to the Internet via the cellular modem. The settings for the cellular network can be configured directly via the control’s web-based management. Among other things, the telecontrol protocols IEC 60870-5-101, -103 and -104, which are important for the energy sector, can optionally be activated on the controller. In addition, a magnetic base antenna with a 2.5 m connection cable and an angled SMA plug is available. In addition to LTE, the antenna supports common radio technologies.
