Screw-less, Spring Pressure Connections:
1951 marks the beginning of WAGO’s success story. In this year, the first terminal block with spring pressure termination technology was born. This innovation led to the first push-wire connection in 1968, and then in 1977 to the industry changing termination technology known as CAGE CLAMP®.
In contrast to traditional screw-type terminations, WAGO’s screw-less, spring pressure termination technologies reduce wiring time by up to 75%. Even more important is the fact that, because the clamping force automatically adjusts to the size of the conductor, it provides a highly reliable, maintenance-free contact that is independent of operator skill. The end result is a secure, vibration proof, corrosion resistant, temperature cycling resistant, and cost saving connection – every time.
In 1995, the world’s first fieldbus independent, modular I/O system was introduced by WAGO. In contrast to other solutions available at the time, the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM® supported multiple fieldbus networks and offered granular (as little as 1 channel), slice style I/O modules. Today the system has grown to support more than 16 fieldbus networks, granularity up to 16 channels of I/O in just a 12mm housing, and has proven to be an industry standard.
The spirit behind CAGE CLAMP® and the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM® continues to fuel our drive to provide engineering solutions.
The 750 XTR offers a modular, compact solution for automation architecture operating in
extreme environments. It is capable of withstanding temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C,
5g vibration resistance, 25g shock resistance, and EMC isolation of up to 5 kV impulse voltages.
The 750 XTR product line includes PLC’s for stand-alone applications, couplers for distributed I/O,
plus digital, analog and specialty I/O modules. For more information visit: www.wago.us/xtr
The PFC200 offers advanced compact, computing power in an easy to use environment for PLC programming and process visualization. The PFC200 acts as a fieldbus gateway to communicate between MODBUS TCP/UD/RTU, CAN, PROFIBUS, Smart Grid and RS-232/RS-485, eliminating the need for third-party converters. A 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor offers the high speed processing and support of 64 bit variables, required to power applications involving complex algorithms.
