WAGO Corporation’s IEC-compatible TeleControl PLC and four Linux-equipped I/O-IPCs are comprehensive solutions for both control and smart grid integration. These WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM components support IEC 60870-5-101 (serial transmission), IEC 60870-5-104 (TCP/IP-based communication) and IEC 61850 (substation protection/control). This permits use of one DIN-rail mount device for automation and IEC communication, conserving engineering resources.
Programmable via CoDeSys 2.3, WAGO’s TeleController and I/O-IPCs convert signals from process/telecontrol apps via connected I/O into IEC-compliant data. This simplifies monitoring of supply networks/transformers, integration of both pumped-storage and hydroelectric power plants into a control system, as well as networking wind/solar farms.
The 32-bit 750-872 TeleControl PLC provides application protocols for data acquisition/control (MODBUS TCP/RTU, ETHERNET I/P) or management/diagnostics (e.g., HTTP, BootP, FTP and more).
Linux 2.6 I/O-IPC-G2:
The 758-870 is available as a Linux 2.6 Master (PROFIBUS DP or CANopen) or Slave (PROFIBUS DP) — both with a 266 MHz Geode™ processor. The Linux-backed 758-875 I/O-IPC-G2 is available with a 1 GHz Celeron®M processor as a PROFIBUS DP or CANopen Master for extended application ranges. All 758 Series I/O-IPC-G2 Masters can double as a main PLC for industrial applications.
The Telecontrol components are compatible with the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM’s 400+ digital, analog, specialty and Ex-i-compliant modules for custom applications. Both the TeleController and I/O-IPC-G2 units pair with Ex-i-components to eliminate EX-barriers within hazardous control applications, e.g., petrochem. They also provide capital asset management via WAGO’s Vibration Monitoring and 3-Phase Power Measurement I/O.
