WAGO Gen 2 PFC200 controllers offer fiber optic option.
WAGO has adding three IIoT-enabled Generation 2 PFC200 controllers to its 750 series, including a standard version and two XTR versions for work in harsh environments. Each PLC model comes 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, OPC-UA 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.
