The Ethernet 2.0 ECO Telecontroller by Wago converts signals via connected IO into IEC-compliant data and maximizes space within compact substation control cabinets. Courtesy: WagoWago expanded their Smart Grid-Ready I/O portfolio with the DIN-rail mount Ethernet 2.0 ECO Telecontroller. ECO Telecontroller supports Smart Grid integration of small, localized renewable energy producers. These producers accommodate a limited amount of I/O. Since utility incorporation relies on collecting precise network states, the ECO Telecontroller facilitates this by converting signals via connected I/O into IEC-compliant data.

Packing an integrated Ethernet switch and dual Ethernet ports, 750-880/0025-0002 ECO TeleController maximizes space within compact substation control cabinets. ECO TeleController's SD Card Memory Expansion slot supplements 1 Mbyte of data memory with up to 32 Gbytes of additional memory. It also allows transfer of device parameters or files, e.g., boot files, from one controller to another.

Applications include power reduction of renewable energy units, or the polling of thermal power stations to virtual power stations. Typically, small energy producers require just four modules and an End Module. Example: A power supply, two four-channel DI, one 4-channel AO and one 2-channel AI, ending the K-bus with a 750-500 End Module.
