WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM Expands to Offer Pluggable Connectors for I/O Module Wiring
"There is a growing trend in the industry for pluggable wiring of either part or all of the control system wiring," claims Dean Norton, Marketing Manager at WAGO Corporation. "We first noticed this trend with our terminal block products and have now addressed this need with our Fieldbus I/O and PLC products."
As a result of this new product development, customers can now pre-manufacture wiring harnesses using the 753 Series Connectors and simply plug them into the 753 Series I/O modules (a variety of both analog, digital and special function modules are available). This serves to simplify installation and reduce wiring errors in the field. Additional features/benefits of this system include:
The 753 Series pluggable I/O modules are 100% compatible with the original 750 Series I/O modules and bus-couplers. Consequently, customers can mix both 750 Series and 753 Series in the same I/O node. This allows the customers to choose whether or not to make all functions on the node pluggable or to us this feature to identify which modules are wired to devices internal (e.g. contactors or relays) vs. external (e.g. sensors or actuators) to the control cabinet.
WAGO is the worldwide leader and innovator in spring pressure connection technology designed to eliminate loose wires as a result of vibration and temperature cycling, as well as provide a highly reliable, corrosion resistant, and maintenance-free connection. Our complete line of spring pressure connection products include DIN rail mount terminal blocks, chassis mount terminal blocks, PCB mount terminal blocks, relays, signal conditioners, power supplies, surge suppressors, the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM and more.
