WAGO Corp.'s high-speed 750-881 ETHERNET 2.0
Programmable Fieldbus Controller processes 1,000
Î¼S. The first from WAGO's upcoming ETHERNET 2.0 line, 750-881
provides significant amounts of memory for PLC programs and Web applications,
as well as an integrated dual-port Ethernet Switch. To keep pace, independent
Ethernet ports respond in 1ms, transmitting real-time information to production and enterprise
750-881 PFC interfaces with standard network protocols, including unique
support for both EtherNet I/P and MODBUS TCP. The Ethernet switch streamlines
costs and system footprint by facilitating a line topology for fieldbus wiring,
eliminating additional switches and hubs. An onboard DIP switch configures the
last octet of IP address/assignment, expediting commissioning.
Keys to the 750-881's high-frequency processing are a 32-bit CPU and 1Mbyte
of program memory. A 2Mbyte Fast File System supervises
both a Web-Based Management System and substantial data logging. E-mail
capability (updates/alarms) is also provided for authorized personnel. 750-881's
standard CoDeSys V2 programming environment is IEC 61131 compatible and features all
five programming languages. The PFC supports up to 250 I/O modules
and allows users to tailor solutions from the 400+ analog, digital and
specialty modules in the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM.
750-881's new housing design departs from WAGO's traditional architecture. The slotted
housing optimizes heat dissipation while maintaining a 0 to 55C operating
temperature range and IP20 rating. Certifications include UL
508, cUL, GL and CE.
In his keynote address at the RAPID 2015 conference last week, Made In Space CTO Jason Dunn gave an update on how far his company and co-development partner NASA have come in their quest to bring 3D printing to the space station -- and beyond.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
