Pluggable, high-density I/O modules earn GL Marine Approval

Wago Corporation’s 753 Series Pluggable I/O Modules and High-Density 16-Point I/O Modules have earned GL Marine Approval


Wago CorporationWago Corporation’s 753 Series Pluggable I/O Modules and High-Density 16-Point I/O Modules have earned GL Marine Approval. This reportedly enables Wago to offer more than 150 marine and offshore products with multiple marine ratings including ABS, BV and DNV.

Based on standard 750 Series Wago-I/O-System modules, 753 Series provide pluggable field wiring via 753-110 Pluggable Connector. GL-Approved Pluggable Connectors are ideal for applications, such as marine systems, that require removal of a module in the fieldbus node without disturbing existing wiring.

The separation of function and wiring layers enables 753 Series to eliminate wiring errors while expediting changeover via pre-wired connectors. 753 Series provides conveniences such as coding options and strain relief, as well as direct testing for commissioning and maintenance.

Wago 16-Point I/O modules feature 16 inputs, 16 outputs, or 8 inputs/8 outputs in a 12mm-wide module. Available with either Clamps Spring Pressure Connections or HE10 flat Ribbon Cable connection, the 16-Point I/O Modules are among the most compact solutions for streamlining control-to-machine wiring.

Flat ribbon cable variants enable the use of pre-wired assemblies to minimize wiring time and errors, while providing multiple connection options. The Cage Clamps modules offer quick and reliable connections for 24 V DC I/O.

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.
