Wago's Web visualization application, the Wago-WebVisu-App, enables the user to monitor and control operations directly from a smartphone or tablet for the plant floor, shipboard, or machine automation.
The Wago WebVisu-App operates exclusively with Wago programmable controllers (e.g., PFC200, Ethernet 2.0 or BACnet/IP Controller). Up to 100 controllers can be defined for direct and quick access via URL. Connecting Wago controllers to a local wireless access point enables plant floor operators and maintenance personnel to easily acquire system information from their mobile devices.
Visualization screens are built within Wago-I/O-PRO, the same software used for programming, to provide an all-in-one solution without needing extra software. Wago-I/O-PRO provides straightforward graphic tools for speedy generation of screens with multiple security levels, enabling task-based login strategies.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
