WAGO Corporation's (Germantown, WInew WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 XTR combines the features of the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM with expanded specifications for use in extreme environments. Reliability in extreme temperatures, vibration and shock resistance, and protection against EMC interference are the fundamental features of the XTR. The 750 XTR can help reduce system costs by offering flexible system configurations, a compact footprint and multiple fieldbus support. An efficient and reliable solution for transportation, energy and process technologies, XTR provides the additional protection needed to defy climatic and mechanical forces at work in extreme conditions.

Built on proven technology, the XTR can be used as a distributed I/O system connected to a higher level controller via MODBUS TCP, EtherNet I/P, CANopen or PROFIBUS. It can also be used as a standalone system leveraging one of its programmable logic controllers' powerful processors and extensive memory capabilities, programmed with WAGO's site-licensed I/O-PRO software that supports all IEC 61131 languages including Ladder, Structured Text, Function Block and more.

XTR I/O modules are compact with 16 channel high density digital I/O in a 12 mm wide housing. The 750 XTR series also offers analog I/O and specialty communication modules. With worldwide certifications and reliable CAGE CLAMP® connection technology, the module is easy to implement in any system, saving engineering time and increasing reliability.

WAGO's 750 XTR is ideal for demanding applications, such as oil and gas onshore/offshore, refineries, pipelines, marine, water and wastewater, renewable energy systems (wind turbines, solar systems and biogas plants), cold storage, rail, tunnel control, mobile equipment and transformer stations.

Specifications include:

  • Operating temperature range -40 to 70 ºC.
  • Dependable in freezing cold, extreme heat, high humidity environments, and short-term condensation.
  • Vibration resistance of 5 g.
  • Shock resistance up to 25 g.
  • Isolation of up to 5 kV impulse voltage.
  • Reduced EMC interference emissions.
  • Increased resistance to interference from external components.
