WAGO Compact Controller 100 supports multiple protocols, Codesys and 61131-3 compatible languages.
WAGO unveiled its Compact Controller 100, a small-scale PLC with a wide variety of remote I/O for use in smaller applications. The PLC can interface with industrial protocols including MODBUS TCP/UDP, EtherNet/IP or EtherCAT via its two EtherNet ports. The Ethernet ports allows for use of a switch or two unique IP addresses. The CC100 uses Codesys 3.5, allowing users to program in one or more of the IEC 61131-3 compatible languages and utilize the controller’s built-in Web Server to develop HTML 5 visualizations. Along with its processor and MicroSD card slot, the CC100 includes a serial port and a variety of built-in digital and analog I/O, plus RTD inputs can be used with WAGO’s 750-362 MODBUS Coupler for I/O expansion in any application.
