Wago Corp. says its industrial PC with embedded PC technology, Wago-I/O-IPC Series 758, integrates standard PC functions, including network and fieldbus interfaces, to quickly and easily achieve decentralized control, sub-networking with popular fieldbuses, as well as recording, analyzing, and measuring even large amounts of data.

Wago-I/O-IPC provides flexible interfaces, including 2x USB ports; 1x RS-232 Serial (Com1) 9 pin d-sub; DVI for graphic interfaces (HMI/OI); 2x digital in, 2x digital out, 2x fast Ethernet 10/100 Mbps; and compact flash type 1 drive. The unit can also be ordered with optional interfaces for DeviceNet, Profibus, or CANopen for sub-networking tasks. Also, built-in LED diagnostics for power supply, watchdog, IDE, internal bus, and run/stop mode enable easy status indication.

Using a 266 MHz Intel Pentium processor, Wago-I/O-IPC offers 32 MB of memory; 128 KB PLC SRAM; battery back up; and RealTime Linux or Microsoft Windows CE embedded operating systems. It's programmable according to IEC 61131-3 standard via Wago-I/O-PRO CAA programming tool, which supports all six programming languages. The programming tool is compliant with the CoDeSys automation alliance, which allows free upgrades and downloads of new features. Wago-I/O-IPC 758 PC-based controller is compatible with all 750 series I/O modules, allowing interface with over 100 modular (2, 4, or 8 channel) digital, analog, and special function I/O modules. www.wago.com
