Harsh-environment connector helps designers link IP67 components with IP20 controls

GERMANTOWN, Wis., 18 April 2012. WAGO Corp. in Germantown, Wis., is introducing the 756 series M12 socket Ethernet adapter that WAGO designed to simply linking machine-mount IP67 components with IP20 controls. The D-Coded M12 connector provides tool-free terminations with a traditional cable-based RJ45 Ethernet socket that routes data through a screw-locking M12 connector.

The harsh-environment connector comes in right-angle (756-9503) and straight (756-9504) variants. The M12 provides Class D transmission performance to 100 MHz, and are 360-degree shielded to Category 5 standards.

“The adapter supports this flexibility for access to the latest Ethernet-based IP20 controls and rapidly evolving IP67 systems," says WAGO Product Manager Charlie Norz.

Network-based configuration helps to streamline machine-building and control applications for industries such as packaging, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical, WAGO officials say. This approach also economizes device maintenance, minimizing service for difficult-to-access applications such as roof-mounted level control devices on top of silos.

WAGO’s Speedway 767 IP67 system takes controls out of the cabinet and to applications via rugged controllers and modules. Firmware enables Speedway to process as many as 1,000 instructions within 150 microseconds. Three all-8-channel digital I/O modules (DIO) and a controller enable Speedway 767 to match the performance of an IP20 system while retaining the IP67 hallmarks of strength and modularity.
