When people speak of custom products, their minds immediately drift to custom cars, custom built homes or other custom-made extravagances that have unique and elegant exteriors. On a few special occasions, these thoughts may reference the internal workings of a finished product, but it always seems that the outer façade gets the lion’s share of the glory. However, discerning minds realize it is truly what is on the inside – the products running the machine – that are at the crux of what makes the end products truly special. That is the thought process that drives WAGO and their Custom Products and Engineering Services (CPES) Team to design their products from the inside out. By focusing on making user applications run efficiently and effectively, the CPES team helps makes life easier for customers by design.
One of the more popular custom product series that WAGO has designed recently is their comprehensive Interface Wiring System. Initially, it was designed for use with the WAGO–I/O– SYSTEM, but it also featured a unique flying lead cable option that can be connected to any PLC. The time-consuming process of point-to-point wiring is further simplified by using pre-wired cables. When using the input module, simply wire your conductor from the sensor to the maintenance-free, CAGE CLAMP® and that’s it. The signal is then transferred to the pre-wired cable and distributed without having to individually wire the inputs to the PLC. These compact modules come in a variety of options including LED indication, relay, fused and many more. With a full complement of pre-wired cables, these modules help reduce space in the control cabinet and are beneficial to a multitude of industries.
WAGO’s Interface Wiring System has the unique feature of being able to take a legacy 120 V output, which continues to be used in some systems and convert it to 24 V, making it more than capable for PLC operations. Another unique characteristic of this multi-faceted system is that the power distribution plug cables and pluggable power distribution modules are designed to make it easy for daisy chaining and jumpering between interface and I/O modules. This system is not just for input; WAGO has designed output modules as well and constructed the relay boards into double-decks, making its 16-channel version the most compact in the industry.
Reducing time, space and overhead are big keys to running successful applications in any industry. WAGO’s custom designed Interface Wiring System does this while at the same time eliminating any costly and dangerous wiring mistakes. One of the biggest advantages to this system is that it is UL compliant for UL 508A Panel building. This system is just a small sample of the innovations that WAGO’s Custom Products and Engineering Services Team can provide.
