Unlimited Automation in Extreme Environments – the New WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 XTR
XTR – is our abbreviation for extreme protection against climatic influences, vibration, impacts and surge voltages. These conditions occur primarily in places in which technology is exposed to weather conditions, for example in the sector of renewable energy sources such as wind power, photovoltaic plants or in transformer stations. The automation systems used in these sectors often require additional and expensive protection features to “defy” the climatic and mechanical forces at work on them.
XTR can be used without any additional measures, thus reducing the space requirements on the DIN rail, while reducing energy and maintenance costs and enhancing productivity. All of these features make the XTR the perfect “all-in-one” solution for feed-in management and monitoring of power distribution grids.
Internal Protection Instead of Additional Safety Measures
The WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 XTR leaves no needs unfulfilled: It can be used without any expensive and space-consuming cooling systems, protection circuits or other special solutions. However, it can still be used in extreme temperature conditions of -40 °C to +70 °C and at elevations of up to 5,000 m.
The insulation withstand to impulse voltages is also impressive. It offers reliable protection of the XTR electronics against impulse voltages arising from switching actions and arcing of up to 1.0 kV (24 V modules) and 5.0 kV (230 V modules). Interference emissions have been reduced while interference resistance has been enhanced. This enables the system to even be used in telecontrol applications with more stringent hardware requirements.
A further highlight of the individual components is their compact dimensions: With up to 16 channels over a mere width of 12 mm, these modules save plenty of space in the control cabinet. The DIN rail with the XTR components can be installed near powerful motors or power circuit breakers. The mechanical forces that are exerted in the vicinity of those components have no effect whatsoever on the XTR modules: Immunity to vibrations of up to 5g (50 m/s²) and impact resistance of up to 25g (250 m/s²) keep your applications sure, safe and reliable at all times.
Fully Loaded with Features – Optimal for Telecontrol and Remote Maintenance
The controllers can be programmed in accordance with IEC 61131-3 in the familiar CODESYS environment. The CANopen, PROFIBUS DP and Modbus-TCP/-UPD/-RTU protocols (based on specific device) provide flexible connection to fieldbus systems and external input/output devices. The telecontroller also supports the IEC 60870-5-101, -103 and -104, 61400-25 and 61850-7 protocols for wireless (GPRS), wired (via ETHERNET) or landline (ISDN/analog) connection to the control system. In the event of a connection disruption, all relevant data is stored and transmitted at a later time to the control system.
The many components of this system stand out not only thanks to their robustness, but also to their performance and energy efficiency: Depending on the specific model, energy-saving 16-bit or 32-bit CPUs "churn" inside the devices, surrounded by an up to 1024 kB program and data memory and a 32 kB retain memory. Some versions also feature a 2-port switch and an SD card interface for excellent performance and flexibility. This enables the data memory to be expanded to 32 GB to offer the reserves required for complex telecontrol tasks. An integrated Web server is also on board to make configuring of the WAGO XTR via the Internet or intranet pure child's play and for evaluating diagnostics.
