Self-sufficient controller for small and medium-scale automation tasks
Local, stand-alone controllers offer benefits compared to central solutions in a wide range of different
applications: They reduce system-wide data traffic, are resistant to interferences within the network, make
troubleshooting easier and are very well suited to being combined with manual processes. Weidmüller's u-control
2000 web controller offers all these benefits and is based on open web technologies.
It integrates real-time automation and communication for the Internet of Things, thereby forming the perfect
interface between the previously separate worlds of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT).
u-control web is primarily suitable for small and medium-scale automation tasks and is perfectly integrated into
the u-mation portfolio.
u-mation solution portfolio
The term u-mation relates to a range of different automation and software solutions that have been put together
by Weidmüller and that can be tailored to the customer's particular application.
The portfolio combines
modular automation hardware with engineering and visualisation tools, thereby enabling the connection of all
process levels – from the sensor to the cloud. The innovative portfolio includes the u-control 2000 web
controller. The controller's web connection means that machines can be accessed from anywhere, with any end
device and regardless of the operating system. This independence is achieved by shifting the software from the
monitored and programmed regardless of their operating systems.

u-control 2000 is a slimline, 52-mm controller that can be combined with input and output modules just like a
The controller software is based on a powerful dual-core ARM A9 processor with a clock
frequency of 624 MHz, 512 Mbyte RAM and an internal flash memory of 4 GB. Up to 32 GB of data and information can
also be stored on a micro SD memory card. The controller is equipped with a battery-buffered real-time
The user has a variety of interfaces for communication or for carrying out engineering tasks on u-control. The
engineering software is started up using a browser, via one of the two RJ45 ports. Once the programming of the
system is complete, data can be exchanged with a higher-level controller or an ERP system via this Ethernet
The development tool Node-RED guarantees the simple realisation of applications in the Internet of Things
sector. Individual function components (nodes) are easily linked simply by creating connections
