Bluetooth RF transceiver module

Wago Corp.'s 750-644 Bluetooth RF-Transceiver module provides fast, bidirectional, wireless communication between I/O nodes. Within 10 ms, the 750-644 exchanges data up to 1,000 m (line-of-sight) or 100 m (within buildings), providing control engineers with a cost-effective wireless solution. This is a September Control Engineering North American edition Product Exclusive.

Wago Corp.'s 750-644 Bluetooth RF-Transceiver module provides fast, bidirectional, wireless communication between I/O nodes. Within 10 ms, the 750-644 exchanges data up to 1,000 m (line-of-sight) or 100 m (within buildings), providing control engineers with a cost-effective wireless solution. It is ideal for a wide range of applications such as robot controls, high bay warehouses, and renewable and traditional energy applications such as oil fields. One 750-644 master can communicate with up to seven slaves on a Personal Area Network (PAN), also known as a piconet, via Bluetooth 2.0+EDR radio technology. Slave-to-slave data transmission is possible indirectly through the master. The module offers robust communications with frequency hopping procedures and adaptive transmitting power technologies, which allows the piconet to co-exist with other radio technologies found in industrial applications. The data exchange can be encrypted, maximizing security.

This is the newest addition to the fieldbus-independent Wago-I/O-System that supports prevalent fieldbus technologies: EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, Profibus, DeviceNet, and CANopen. The Bluetooth module works with all standard fieldbus couplers/controllers found in the Wago-I/O-System, more than 300 analog, digital and specialty modules. Configuration of the 750-644 is easy with Wago-I/O-Check 3 software. Wago-I/O-Pro programming software provides function blocks that make the module's use easier. The module carries eight on-unit LEDs for on-site diagnostics of interference, signal quality and timeouts. The 750-644 also features an SMA socket for Wago's 758-912 antenna, data contact, and power jumper contacts. It is available for immediate delivery.
