I/O system for harsh environments
Wago Corporation's Wago-I/O-SYSTEM 750 XTR is designed for use in extreme environments and has vibration protection and electrical protection from impulse voltage.
Wago Corporation’s Wago-I/O-SYSTEM 750 XTR is designed for use in extreme environments while reducing system costs with features like flexible system configurations, a compact footprint and multiple fieldbus support.
With an operating temperature range of -40ºC to 70ºC, XTR is dependable in freezing cold, extreme heat and high humidity environments and has the ability to withstand short-term condensation. The XTR also has a vibration resistance of 5g and a shock resistance up to 25g per IEC 60068-2-27, which makes it useful for equipment that have high levels of vibration and shock such as off-road heavy mobile equipment, or in rotating tools found in mining or tunnel boring machines.
The WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 XTR also provides isolation of up to 5 kV impulse voltage. Reduced EMC interference emissions and increased resistance to interference from external components enable engineers to design XTR into high potential applications found in switch gear cabinets and substations.
The XTR can be used as a distributed I/O system connected to a higher level controller via MODBUS TCP, EtherNet I/P, CANopen or PROFIBUS. It can also be used as a standalone system leveraging one of its programmable logic controllers’ powerful processors and extensive memory capabilities, programmed with WAGO’s site-licensed I/O-PRO software that supports all IEC 61131 languages including Ladder, Structured Text, Function Block and more.
XTR I/O modules are compact with 16 channel high density digital I/O in a 12 mm wide housing. The 750 XTR series also offers analog I/O and specialty communication modules.
