Bring IIoT to Your Equipment

The Wx100 PLC is the main controller of the new, MQTT-ready Super PLC family. Beyond serving as a low cost, super powerful standalone PLC for OEM equipment, a Wx100 can also be an IIoT companion that instantly transforms your existing OEM product or factory automation equipment into IIoT (industrial Internet of Things) without any re-engineering! This allows OEMs to quickly update their products as IIoT-capable with minimal investment and zero risk!

  • No need to reprogram existing equipment
  • Wx100 connects to OEM product or factory equipment via RS485/RS232
  • Retrieve equipment data using Modbus RTU or an ASCII protocol
  • Or monitor equipment's I/Os using Wx100's built-in analog and digital I/Os
  • Publish equipment data to MQTT Server (Clear or SSL)
  • Subscribe to MQTT topics and transfer received data to the equipment via RS485 or RS232.
  • May also act as a WLAN ModbusTCP to Modbus RTU gateway

Wx100 itself is actually an extremely powerful programmable controller with built-in MQTT client functions and connect to the LAN or Internet via WiFi. It is able to act as a serial protocol master to an existing equipment's controller via its RS485 port. As such Wx100 can extract data from the equipment controllers, process it and then upload the data to a MQTT server directly. Wx100 also has built-in analog and digital I/Os that can connect to your existing equipment for I/O monitoring or data collection. Therefore, Wx100 is a perfect IIoT companion to any industrial equipment that either has a controller with RS232 or RS485 port and support a serial communication protocol (e.g. Modbus RTU or some ASCII string based protocol), or has digital or analog I/Os that Wx100 can connect to obtain data.

So whether you have OEM products that need an IIoT upgrade, or you would like to add IIoT capability to your in-house production equipment without major re-engineering, a Wx100 can easily accomplish your goal with minimal cost and effort. In addition, Wx100 provides your equipment a mini-HMI that can make your product more attractive and competitive.

Of course, Wx100 can also be the main PLC if you are building a new product. It's incredible amount of capability at an unbelievably good price will ensure that your new IIoT-ready OEM product is highly competitive and attractive to your customers.

Integrated HMI & I/O Ready

The Wx100 PLC has an integrated 16-key keypad and a 128 x 64 pixels OLED display screen. Likes its Fx series PLC cousins, Wx100 PLC supports full floating-point math and is programmed using the new i-TRiLOGI version 7.5+ software that also support programming of its new keypad and OLED display capability.

Easily add terminal connections for the available digital and analog I/O via our ready-made I/O board options or custom-build your own.

For basic I/O needs, choose Wx-TERM8 that includes:

  • 8 PNP/NPN configurable digital inputs
  • 6 digital outputs
  • Up to 6 analog inputs (shared with DI 1-6)
  • Special I/O such as HSC, Stepper Control, PWM



For additional I/O needs, choose Wx-TERM16 that includes

  • 16 PNP/NPN configurable digital inputs
  • 14 digital outputs
  • Up to 6 analog inputs (shared with DI 1-6)
  • 4 analog outputs (2 channel 0-20mA, 2 channel 0-5V).
  • Special I/O such as HSC, Stepper Control, PWM
  • Expansion Port to add digital and/or analog I/O

So whether you have OEM products that need an IIoT upgrade, or you would like to add IIoT capability to your in-house production equipment without major re-engineering, a Wx100 can easily accomplish your goal with minimal cost and effort. In addition, Wx100 provides your equipment a mini-HMI that can make your product more attractive and competitive.
