GERMANTOWN, WI – WAGO Corporation’s updated 758 Series IPCs pair CoDeSys V2 software, Linux OS, IEC programming languages and multiple onboard fieldbus protocols for real-time control applications. A PC and PLC hybrid, the 758 Series IPCs offer a robust, scalable solution and network connectivity. The IPCs include traditional PC interfaces like compact flash, USB, RS-232 and DVI ports. Independent Ethernet ports provide fieldbus connectivity; the IPCs also support PROFIBUS and CANopen protocols. Direct connection to the 400+ specialty, analog and digital modules in the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM is also possible.
The inclusion of CoDeSys V2 enables development of IEC 61131, C or C++ user-defined function blocks, protecting intellectual property in secure, organize code. Opting for Linux maximizes control and programming capabilities within a stable, open system. Four IPC variants provide up to 256 MB of RAM and up to 512 MB flash memory for large system programs and extensive data logging.
Leveraging CoDeSys visualization tools and the IPC’s DVI port, users are provided with an effective local HMI solution. The 758 Series’ Web-based management system enables simple system configuration and project commissioning.
Developed for areas too harsh for traditional PCs, the 758 series IPCs offer passive cooling and non-rotating data storage media. The 758-875 IPC variant operates in temperatures from -20°C to +60°C. All four IPC models are available and carry UL 508 and CE listings.
