GERMANTOWN, WI – WAGO Corporation’s new IP67 SPEEDWAY 767-1311 Fieldbus Coupler links the fieldbus level to Sercos V1.2 real-time Ethernet fieldbus system. Supporting all Sercos cycle times, WAGO’s high-performance coupler integrates into a Sercos system via Standardized Sercos Profiles and Device Description (SDDML). The machine-mount coupler features 10µs high-speed synchronization for harsh-environment motion control applications that may not have the resources for enclosures.
DOING HARD “REAL-TIME”:
SPEEDWAY Sercos coupler’s eight high-speed digital inputs capture binary signals from switches and sensors with a 10ìs (microseconds) scanning cycle — compatible with 31.25µs Sercos cycles. Because the coupler connects to a wide range of WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM modules, SPEEDWAY can support “hard” real-time applications with I/O cycles of a mere 250µs. The coupler is extendable up to 64 modules, which can be installed away from the Sercos coupler for system expansion up to 200m. This enables digital and analog I/O modules to be installed directly next to sensors and actuators.
767-1311 determines station structure upon install, generating the process image for configured I/O — even for mixed (analog, digital and specialty modules) stations. Parameter setting via FDT/DTM (including diagnostics and simulation) simplifies integration. Dual, integrated Ethernet ports create both line and ring topologies without additional components. Supporting Auto MDI/MDI-X, the ports detect transmission direction — patch and crossover cables can be used. 767-1311 carries UL 508.
WAGO is the leader in spring pressure connection technology that eliminates loose wires resulting from vibration and temperature cycling, while providing highly reliable, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free connections. Products: DIN-rail, PCB and chassis mount terminal blocks; signal conditioners; the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM and more.
