Interface function block adds efficiency
Wago Corporation’s J1939 interface function block increases large engine efficiency by tracking, and reacting to, engine performance parameters via Wago-I/O-System. Wago’s J1939 Interface is compatible with SAE’s J1939 Protocol favored by prominent engine manufacturers. This enables Wago-I/O-System Programmable Controllers and IPCs to cost-effectively monitor and optimize engine operation on large vessels, generator sets or within plants.
Monitoring multiple engines on one CAN network, Wago’s J1939 Interface directs Wago-I/O-System components to run auxiliary devices, e.g., cooling fans, or execute alarm, start/stop and speed control functions. Engine data may also be transferred to a local HMI or SCADA system via Fieldbus.
The majority of Wago-I/O-System controllers, couplers and modules carry key approvals including UL, ABS, DNV, GL, CE and ATEX. These make Wago’s J1939 Interface and Wago-I/O-System ideal for diverse engine monitoring applications, from those in oil fields to those aboard workboats and cargo vessels.
To simplify J1939 engine monitoring integration, Wago’s Custom Product Division has developed a J1939 Enclosure. The pre-wired NEMA 4X enclosure is equipped with Wago-I/O, such as the ETHERNET 2.0 Media Redundancy Controller for redundant networks.
