Connect your WAGO PLC to the cloud with the embedded IXagent

The IXagent, an alternative to the IXrouter, is the powerful software that is specifically developed to be integrated in PLCs from different manufacturers. The IXagent is now also available for WAGO PLCs, in addition to the previously available integrations with manufacturers such as Berghof, Beckhoff and Sigmatek.

Easily connect your device with the IXON Cloud via the IXagent and gain insight into your machines. No need to invest in costly and time-consuming development of custom software. Securely connect your equipment to the cloud. The IXagent offers a seamless integration with the IXON Cloud, without requiring any additional hardware.

How to utilize the IXagent for WAGO

When the IXagent is installed in the WAGO PLC, the user can access IXON Cloud and easily establish a VPN connection to the PLC for industrial remote access and troubleshooting. Securely and easily access the PLC’s local web page using IXON’s Cloud Access.

Start logging data with Cloud Logging to gain relevant insights into your machines. Protocols such as Modbus TCP and OPC UA are supported by default. The data, stored up to 7 years, can easily be accessed through advanced dashboards. The user can also choose for which events notifications should be sent. Relevant users will be notified by email or push notification. IXON Cloud ensures that users will also be notified when the connection between the PLC and cloud is lost.
