The System for eXTReme Environments
XTR – this abbreviation stands for extreme protection against climatic influences, vibration, impacts and surge voltages. These conditions occur primarily in places where technology is exposed to weather. The automation systems used in these sectors often require additional expensive, space-intensive protection features for the switch/control cabinets in order to withstand climatic and mechanical forces. The WAGO I/O System 750 XTR does not require any additional measures in these conditions, and it also offers outstanding features such as an extended temperature range from −40 to +70 °C (−40 … +158 °F).
With a permissible surrounding air temperature ranging from an ice cold −40 °C to a sweltering +70 °C (−40 °F … +158 °F), the remote I/O system requires no air-conditioning, allowing usage anywhere in the world at the lowest possible cost – even in the tightest spaces. That’s an impressive level of reliability!
Automation systems need to be especially vibration-resistant, particularly when installed close to system components that are prone to vibrations or generate shocks. Powerful motors and power circuit breakers are just two examples. The WAGO I/O System 750 XTR was developed to set new standards in these environments too. With vibration resistance up to an acceleration of 5g per DIN EN 60068-2-6 and shock resistance of 15g (150 m/s⊃2), as well as continuous shock resistance of 25g (250 m/s⊃2) per IEC 60068-2-27, the system is engineered for dependability – no matter what. You can count on long-lasting, trouble-free operation even in the most demanding applications, such as tunnel boring machines.
WAGO’s remote I/O System 750 XTR provides greater isolation up to 5 kV of impulse voltage, lower EMC emission of interference and higher insensitivity to EMC interference to ensure trouble-free operation. In your application, you can use the 750 XTR for targeted communication with other parts of the system without creating interference or disrupting other system components. This ensures successful communication and reliability you can trust.
Fieldbus couplers connect the WAGO I/O System 750 XTR to a higher-level control system. The couplers support popular fieldbus protocols such as PROFIBUS, CANopen and ETHERNET standards. This I/O system is find-tuned for integration into the scalable control solutions of both the 750 XTR and the PFC200 XTR Controllers. WAGO’S e!COCKPIT (CODESYS 3) and WAGO I/O-PRO (based on CODESYS 2) engineering environments are available for configuration, programming, diagnostics and visualization.
Another highlight of WAGO’s wide range of I/O modules for extreme environments is their compact design. With up to sixteen channels in a width of just 12 mm (0.472 inch), these modules save plenty of space in the control cabinet without restricting applications in any way. 750 XTR is also the perfect solution for applications in the renewable energy sector (wind power, photovoltaic and biogas plants), for transformer stations and power distribution (feed-in management and energy network monitoring) and for ship building, onshore/offshore industry and rail applications.
Thanks to its ATEX/IECEx approvals, the WAGO I/O System 750 XTR can be used both outside of hazardous areas and within Zone 2/22 inside an approved enclosure. In addition to standard signals from sensors and actuators in Zone 2/22, intrinsically safe sensors and actuators from Zones 0/20 and 1/21 can also be integrated into the I/O modules in blue housings. This combination of intrinsic safety features with resistance to environmental extremes makes the WAGO I/O System 750 XTR invaluable for oil and gas industry systems in the upstream (extraction, processing) and downstream (transport, refining) sectors, as well as outdoor systems exposed to extreme temperature cycling.

WAGO Brings More Power to Harsh Environments
New PFC200 Controllers and Modules for the WAGO I/O System 750 XTR
WAGO is expanding its I/O System 750 XTR, which was engineered for demanding environmental conditions, with more powerful PFC200 Controllers and numerous new I/O Modules. The new PFC200 technology is based on G2 hardware and features a 1 GHz Cortex A8 CPU with 512 MB of RAM and a 4 GB eMMC for applications requiring high computing power or large storage space. A four-channel PWM module is now also available, which allows all channels to be parameterized separately. Analog inputs for current and voltage measurements with four high-resolution channels and eight-channel low-side switching digital inputs and outputs are also new.
The I/O System 750 XTR is designed for applications where it is subjected to environmental extremes and harsh conditions. These include the energy sector, shipbuilding, offshore facilities and railway applications. The system boasts a high number of channels on a compact footprint, which saves valuable control cabinet space. The majority of the I/O modules are only 12 mm wide and offer up to 16 channels.

3-Phase Power Measurement Module for Easy Expansion of Existing Switchgear
With the help of special sensors, the new module for the WAGO I/O System 750 XTR allows measurement of electrical data from a 3-phase supply network in the medium-voltage range up to 20 kV.
Thus it provides a simple, general, cost-effective solution for the low- and medium-voltage ranges along with easy network analysis. The module allows measurement with voltage and current sensors that meet the IEC 60044-7/8 and IEC 61869-10/11 standards. With it, existing substations can be expanded quickly and easily without extensive modifications. Integration into the flexible WAGO I/O System 750 XTR makes installation of additional devices unnecessary. Users also benefit from the features of the robust XTR system, which can withstand high vibration and shock loads, guarantees dielectric strength and EMC and can be used in a wide temperature range from −40 to +70 °C. Typical applications of the new module include distribution substations and medium-voltage connections in industrial systems.

For Robust Connections in Railway Applications: WAGO I/O System 750 XTR Now with M12 Connections
Temperature fluctuations, shocks and vibrations – automation technology for railway applications must be safe and reliable under the most extreme conditions. WAGO has streamlined its industry-proven WAGO I/O System 750 XTR for extreme environments – particularly railway applications. As part of this change, both the PFC200 XTR Controllers and Modbus TCP XTR/ETHERNET/IP XTR Fieldbus Couplers are now being upgraded for even higher performance. Further, especially robust M12 connectors replace the RJ45 connectors that had been standard previously.
Secure Protection against Dirt and Moisture
“These connectors meet tough requirements – especially those found in the railway industry,” says Manfred Kühme, the 750 XTR I/O System product manager. M12 plugs have high mechanical strength and, when plugged in, are resistant to dirt and moisture. At the same time, they ensure safe and reliable contact for error-free data transmission. In contrast to RJ45 plugs, they are not only plugged in, but also screwed into the socket in a way that makes them vibration-proof. “That’s considered the more reliable connection type for the stiff, heavy ETHERNET cables used in railway applications,” explains Kühme.
Outdoor Technology Proven Many Times Over
The WAGO I/O System 750 XTR has already proven itself in many demanding outdoor applications in the railway, marine and petrochemical industries, as well as in water and wastewater treatment systems. Certifications for a variety of applications and markets, high-performance components, a small footprint and a large selection of I/O modules are among the system’s key most important benefits for offering maximum flexibility in the most challenging conditions.
