WAGO is pleased to announce that their Touch Panel 600 and Generation 2 PFC200 have been listed as part of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Device Catalog for AWS IoT Greengrass 1.10.0.
The Touch Panel 600 line of Operator Interface devices brings high-tech screens and high quality visualizations to accompany machines. You have the ability to operate, observe, visualize and diagnose in factory, process and marine applications all within one operator interface.
The Gen 2 PFC200 controllers have increased processor speed and more onboard memory, and offer gateways between multiple industrial fieldbuses. They also enable data transfer with Cloud Services and SCADA via the MQTT protocol. An onboard web server enables dynamic HTML5 visualizations that can be used by operators and maintenance personnel for system operation. In addition, a built-in Firewall and VPN helps you deploy Defense-in-Depth strategies without the need for additional components.
Both products are Linux based and now have the ability to run AWS’s Greengrass Core service, enabling deployment of custom Lambda functions to the Edge device for scaleable IIoT applications.
