Designed to meet the requirements of modern decentralized production facilities WAGO’s new I/O System Field provides maximum performance and high-level connectivity with an IP67 rating. The I/O System Field offers superior flexibility with two housing types: cast zinc and non-encapsulated with electronics.

The metal cast zinc housing devices are Profinet based and have input and output power ports for use with daisy chained modules, while EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT protocols will be supported in future releases. These modules were also designed for the time-sensitive networking (TSN) standard, support OPC UA communications and through Bluetooth technology can be configured via smart device app.

The non-encapsulated modules are lightweight, IO-Link hubs for versatile connection to an IO-Link Client.  These hubs are available in your choice of 8 or 16 configurable DIO ports and each channel is configurable for a 24 VDC digital input or output rated at 2 amps per channel.

WAGO’s I/O System field allows you to extend your network connectivity, combine a functionality and aesthetics, integrate power management with innovative load management and have an all-in-one solution for both data collection and distribution with a variety of connector and cable possibilities.
