Ethernet Controller Offers New Functions

WAGO Corporation is pleased to introduce the addition of their upgraded Ethernet TCP/IP Programmable Fieldbus Controller (PFC) to the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM product offering. Designated the 750-841 Series, this upgraded Ethernet Controller provides the solution to growing demand in a PFC by the manufacturing and process control industry with new functions such as double the data memory to 256kb, the addition of a multi-tasking operating system, and the ability to complete on-line programming changes.

Key features of the Ethernet Controller include a 32bit RISC processor; 512kb program memory, 24kb retentive memory, 100Mbits/s Ethernet, IEC-61131-3 programming and the latest open architecture software interfaces and protocols including the industrial Ethernet protocols ModbusTCP and EtherNet/IP. As part of the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM, the Ethernet Controller is 100% compatible with all 750 series I/O modules allowing the flexibility to interface with over 100 modular (2,4, or 8 channel) digital, analog, and special function I/O modules. Additional features include a real-time clock for time stamping and scheduling applications, as well as having programs stored in flash memory to ensure system integrity on recovery from power failure--eliminating the need for periodic battery replacement.

This upgraded Ethernet Controller easily interfaces to virtually any enterprise information architecture (including Microsoft .NET, UNIX, and LINUX-based systems), to link factory floor processes to enterprise information systems through functions that support HTTP, XML, DHCP, DNS, FTP, SNMP and SMTP. Greater versatility is also realized by this controllers capability to support a wide range of devices including bar code readers, RFIDs, HMIs, encoders, bar code printers, message displays, light boards, drive interfaces and can subnet serial protocols.

"The WAGO Ethernet Controller is part of a new breed of controllers that meets the needs of both modern manufacturing and process control by providing a high performance, distributed controller with interfaces to enterprise business systems," explains Mark DeCramer, Advanced Electronics Product Manager at WAGO. "Customers will now have the flexibility and ease to implement open architecture, distributed control, and information systems."

WAGO offers the complete software suite including program editor, simulator, online debugger and basic HMI software for a one-time site license of $600 list price. As new features are added to the controller, the software libraries may be downloaded from the WAGO website at no charge.

WAGO is the worldwide leader in spring pressure connection technology designed to eliminate loose wires as a result of vibration and temperature cycling, as well as provide a highly reliable, corrosion resistant, and maintenance-free connection. Our complete line of spring pressure connection products include DIN rail mount terminal blocks, chassis mount terminal blocks, PCB mount terminal blocks, relays, signal conditioners, power supplies, surge suppressors, the WAGO I/O SYSTEM and more.
