Extended I/O range for use in extreme environments

30 May 2017

A variant of the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750, the XTR range, is now available to deliver I/O for use in harsh applications. With high protection against environmental and electronic interferences, the system is said to be suitable for hazardous areas including offshore, particularly hot or cold environments, or environments that are subject to strong shocks and vibrations.

The range includes programmable fieldbus controllers, couplers, digital and analogue inputs and outputs, and a range of communication, supply and segment modules tailored to meet the needs of particular industries and applications.

With up to 16 channels in a 12 mm wide module housing, and no additional protective measures or external heating/cooling required, the system is also suitable for situations and applications where cabinet or DIN-rail space is at a premium.

Able to withstand temperatures from -40°C up to +70°C, the XTR range requires no air conditioning and has no moving parts, resulting in lower energy and maintenance costs, while reducing the risk of mechanical failure. It is also able to function at elevations up to 5,000 m, making it suitable for high altitude applications. Vibration protection of 5 g and shock protection up to 20 g defends the system against constant and sudden impact, ensuring maximum uptime and security of investment.

The XTR is protected against electronic interference with isolation up to 5 kV of impulse voltage, lower EMC emission of interference and higher insensitivity against EMC interference compared to conventional I/O systems. WAGO’s push-in cage clamp connections mean that wiring is quick and easy, and that connections remain secure and protected against disturbances, even in unshielded areas.
