WAGO’s Devices on the Cutting Edge of Network Computing
WAGO is combining the advantages of decentralized cloud computing with local control networks by debuting their new Edge Controller and Edge Computer. These devices for edge-of-network computing provide low latency control and simplified connection with cloud-based services providing multiple interfaces for connection to field devices and monitors.
The Edge Controller (752-8303/800-002) is designed for edge-of-network applications where deterministic PLC control can be combined with machine learning, data aggregation, cloud services, predictive maintenance, and other analytic algorithms. It allows users to run high-speed and complex applications with its quad-core processor as well as applications through docker containers with its Linux-based real-time operating system.
