Germantown, WI— Wago recently introduced its Ethernet TCP/IP programmable fieldbus controller (PFC), part number 750-841, which features 100 Mbps Ethernet, IEC-61131-3, and open architecture software interfaces and protocols. 750-841 comes standard with a 32-bit RISC processor, 512 KB program memory, 128 KB data memory and 24 KB retentive memory.

Programs are stored in flash memory to ensure system integrity on recovery from power failure, and eliminate the need for periodic battery replacement. Also, this new Ethernet TCP/IP controllert features a real-time clock.

Besides being a controller, 750-841 supports the functions required to meets the demands of linking factory floor processes to enterprise information systems. This is possible because 750-841 has functions that support HTTP, XML, DHCP, DNS, FTP, SNMP and SMTP. HTML pages can be placed on an internal server for use in web-based applications. Capabilities include e-mailing information directly from the PFC, serving up WEB pages, and generating remote procedure calls using SOAP. Building on industry standards, 750-841 can interface to virtually any enterprise information architecture including Microsoft .NET, UNIX, and Linux-based systems.

'The 750-841 is part of a new breed of controllers that meets the needs of modern manufacturing and process control by providing a high performance, distributed controller with interfaces to enterprise business systems,' explains Bill Lydon, Wago’s advanced electronics product manager. 'This product makes implementation of open architecture, distributed control and information systems easy to accomplish.'

In addition to its industrial sensor inputs and outputs, 750-841 support a wide range of devices including bar code readers, RFIDs, HMIs, encoders, bar code printers, message displays, light boards, drive interfaces and can subnet serial protocols.
