Controller with I/O

For harsh environments

The Wago-I/O-System 750 XTR can for example be used in renewable energy systems. It was designed for extreme environments.

Boasting twelve additional components, the XTR series is ready for renewable energy systems and local area networks. According to the company, the Wago-I/O-System 750 XTR combines the benefits of the Wago-I/O-System with the key features for dependability in tough environments.

These include resistance at temperatures from -40 °C and +70 °C, immunity to interference up to 1 kV (< 60 V, Class VW1) and 5 kV (≥ 60 V, Class VW3), as well as vibration resistance up to 5 g. The company also added that the system requires minimal space and is distinguished by low energy and maintenance costs.

The core product of the system is the CANopen PFC200 controller with a real-time-capable Linux operating system. The 750 XTR controllers are available in two versions with different numbers of communication interfaces including CANopen and CAN layer-2. With the PFC200, users have the option of planning their projects using the e!Cockpit Engineering Software in a Codesys 3 environment or via Wago-I/O-Pro in the Codesys 2 environment. Both versions of the PFC200 are also available for the 750 XTR series as tele-controllers that support DNP3 in addition to the IEC 60870-5-101, -103 and -104, IEC 61850, IEC 61400-25 tele-control protocols.

The tele-control versions have only been configured in a Codesys 2 up to now. The PFC200 tele-controllers also command IPsec and OpenVPN. Featuring SDHC memory, the fan- and battery-free PFC200 is maintenance-free and robust, said the company. The 3-Phase Power Measurement Modules expand the application range. It is available for the 750 XTR series in three versions: for measuring using current transducers at a maximum measuring current of 1 A or 5 A, as well as for measuring with Rogowski coils.

All relevant measured values (e.g., reactive/apparent/effective power, energy consumption, power factor, phase angle, frequency, over-/under- voltage) are transmitted directly into the process image without requiring high computing power from the controller. With this information and an analysis up to the 41st harmonic, the 3-phase power measurement module provides network analysis.
