WAGO Intrinsically Safe 2-Channel Analog Output Module
Press release date: December 1, 2012
GERMANTOWN, WI – WAGO Corporation’s new, 2-channel Analog Output Module carries Ex [ia Safety Approvals, expanding the company’s Ex-i portfolio. The Intrinsically Safe 750-586 Module provides a signal current of 4–20 mA, linking WAGO Ethernet Controllers with actuators in hazardous location Zones 0, 1 and 2.
ATEX and IECEx certified, the 750-586 galvanically isolates field and system levels while providing short circuit-resistant outputs. These measures bolster safety in atmospheres, such as those in mining, where gas and dust accumulate or hazardous location applications such as oil/gas.
The 4–20 mA 750-586 joins WAGO’s Intrinsically Safe 750-585 2-Channel Analog Output Module with a 0–20 mA signal current. The 750-585 0–20 mA unit also carries short-circuit-resistant outputs and an Ex [ia safety Approval.
WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM and Hazardous Locations:
Both 2-Channel, Intrinsically Safe Modules reside within standard WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM nodes. WAGO separates Intrinsically and Non-Intrinsically Safe sections within one node, providing hazardous location applications with fieldbus-independence and economical sensor/actuator connections.
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.
