Wago Corporation's updated 758 Series industrial PCs. Wago Corporation's updated 758 Series industrial PCs combine CoDeSys V2 software, Linux OS, IEC programming languages, and multiple onboard fieldbus protocols for real-time control applications. Characterizing this design as a PC and PLC hybrid, Wago says the 758 Series offers a robust, scalable solution and network connectivity.

Models in the series include traditional PC interfaces like compact flash, USB, RS-232, and DVI ports. Independent Ethernet ports provide fieldbus connectivity, supporting Profibus and CANopen protocols. Wago adds that the PCs permit direct connection to the more than 400 specialty, analog, and digital modules in its Wago I/O System.

CoDeSys V2 enables development of IEC 61131, C, or C++ user-defined function blocks, protecting intellectual property in secure, organized code. The company says that using Linux maximizes control and programming capabilities within a stable, open system. Four variants within the series provide up to 256 MB of RAM and up to 512 MB flash memory for large system programs and extensive data logging.

CoDeSys visualization tools and the unit’s DVI port provides users with an effective local HMI solution. Wago says it designed the 758 Series' Web-based management system to enable simple system configuration and project commissioning.

The 758 series industrial PCs offer passive cooling and non-rotating data storage media. The 758-875 variant operates in temperatures from -20 to 60 °C. All four models carry UL 508 and CE listings.
