WAGO "ECOnomy" Fieldbus Coupler Offers Economical Solution For Automation Systems
Germantown, WI, January 2002-WAGO Corporation has once again expanded its line of WAGO I/O SYSTEM products to include the new ECO Fieldbus Coupler, bringing the same quality and reliability to a wider variety of applications.
The ECO Fieldbus coupler is recommended for applications that have reduced I/O requirements. As a result of its smaller, 8-bit microcontroller format, the ECO Fieldbus Coupler offers a cost-effective solution for use in I/O nodes with maximum 32 byte data sizes. Analog and specialty I/O modules can still be included on the node.
