WAGO I/O System Field
July 31, 2020 | By MRO Magazine
WAGO I/O System Field is IP67 rated and offers flexibility with two types of housings: Cast zinc housings with encapsulated electronics, and non-encapsulated plastic housings with low mass.
The cast zinc housing devices have input and output power ports for use with daisy chained modules, and are Profinet based. Future releases will be able to support EtherNet/IP and EtherCat protocols. They are designed for the time-sensitive networking standard, support OPC UA and MQTT communications, and can be configured via smart device app using Bluetooth technology.
The non-encapsulated lightweight modules are IO-Link hubs for connection to an IO-Link Master. They are available in eight or 16 configurable DIO ports and each channel is configurable for a 24 VDC digital input or output rated at two amps per channel.
Both are equipped with load management. Current and voltage levels can be recorded and evaluated, and overload limits and alarms can be set for each channel.
