Ethernet 2.0 Programmable Fieldbus Controller with SD. Wago's 750-880 Ethernet 2.0 Programmable Fieldbus Controller enhances control with high-speed processing, Ethernet flexibility, and expandable memory via SD port (up to 8GB of additional memory with SD card). This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.Wago's ultra-compact 750-880 Ethernet 2.0 Programmable Fieldbus Controller expedites programming/upgrades and advances data management via an integrated SD port. Nearly 60% smaller than other PLCs, the 750-880 also supports control applications with unmatched flexibility and high-speed processing. Via the SD card, the 750-880 provides programming, Back-Up, and Restore functions along with the unique ability to insert/remove the SD card during operation. Users can easily back-up controllers or expedite large-scale programming by transferring device parameters, boot files, or other file types between controllers. Back-Up and Restore eliminates users having to travel to a plant for programming/updates; they can simply issue these via new SD card. Critical updates can also be e-mailed for faster implementation. The 750-880 employs 1MB of both data and program memory while accommodating up to 8GB of additional memory via the SD card. Machine/process data or programming can be uploaded or downloaded to an SD card for controller-to-controller exchange. Data storage is managed by a robust 2MB Fast File System, while Web-based management provides access to machine health and configurations. E-mail capabilities and FTP technologies simplify data transfer between production and manufacturing enterprise systems. 

Blending IT-style network flexibility with PLC functionality, the 750-880's integrated dual-port Ethernet switch eliminates switches and hubs. Unlike other SD-capable controllers, the fieldbus-independent 750-880 supports EtherNet I/P and MODBUS TCP for seamless system integration. Complementing 750-880's technological advancements is the ability to process 1,000 instructions within 235 microseconds. The multitasking 750-880 relies on a robust, industry-proven TCP/IP stack and an IEC61131-3 compatible environment.  Leveraging a footprint that's up to five times smaller than that of other controllers, the 750-880 streamlines controls, permits cost-effective upgrades, and simplifies networking to boost the bottom line.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
