Finalist in Networked Building Automation Systems/Controls, Energy Management Systems in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
WAGO Corp.’s 750-882 Ethernet 2.0 media redundancy controller provides two redundant networks via dual, independent Ethernet interfaces without additional hubs or switches, which can help increase the reliability of critical applications within building automation networks. With this simultaneous media redundancy, networks are accessible through two different IP addresses and MAC IDs; independent Ethernet ports permit redundant connection of two transmission paths. Designed for fieldbus communication via Modbus/TCP, the product can process 1000 instructions in less than 235 microsec. It also accommodates HTTP, BootP, DHCP, DNS, and FTP. This flexibility supports energy solutions, such as three-phase power measurement modules.
