Configurable Digital Input/Output Modules Added to Wago Speedway System
- By WorkBoat
Configurable channel-by-channel, the 767-5801 & 767-5802 modules (24V DC, 0.5A) run in direct input (DI), direct output (DO) or mixed DIO modes. Wago Corp., based in Germantown, Wis., says this versatility, and a segment-leading -25°C to +60°C operating temperature range, enables users to methodically tailor Speedway to meet application requirements.
767-5801 (8xM8 connectors) and 767-5802 (4xM12 connectors) record binary signals from sensors, proximity switches and controls actuators, e.g., DC contactors or indicators. Capable of channel and module diagnostics, the 8DIO modules provide parameterization of filter, inversion, substitute value strategy, manual mode and online simulation. Additionally, the modules can be configured with two 1kHz counters with event, gateway time or pulse duration modes. They can also directly switch module outputs based on counter status.Wago Corp. says Speedway 767 takes controls out of the cabinet and directly to applications via rugged, machine-mountable controllers and modules. It accommodates up to 64 I/O modules/station, 8 channels/module, 512 channels/station and 50m between digital, analog or specialty modules. Robust M8/M12 molded cables handle all power and signal transmission. The system is programmable via CoDeSys 3.0 and configurable via FDT/DTM technology. Supported protocols include: EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP, ProfiNet, Profibus, DeviceNet and CANopen.
