WAGO Corporation’s new 758-915 Bluetooth® ETHERNET Gateway wirelessly transfers ETHERNET protocols, such as PROFINET, MODBUS/TCP or EtherNet/IP via Bluetooth® 2.0. Replacing communication lines between two automation systems, 758-915 features a 400 meter range courtesy of an international, license-free 2.4–2.480 GHz ISM band. This is ideal for mobile applications or those where cable-based data transmission would be too costly, complex or impossible.
758-915 employs Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology and Low Emission Mode™ for coexistence with other technologies such as WLAN. The 758-915’s on-board “Mode-Button” simplifies connections and automation system configuration. Web-based Management provides additional configuration options, e.g., password or IP address; on-unit LEDs provide configuration and diagnostic status.
Engineered for harsh applications, the IP65-rated 758-915 employs rugged M12 cables for automation connections and carries a temperature rating of -30° to +65°C. 758-915 features an internal, circularly polarized antenna for reliable radio connections in metal-intensive environments.
