Power Now Communicates

WAGO's new line of Pro 2 Power Supplies sets new industry communication and parameterization benchmarks. The Pro 2 Series includes six units ranging from 120–960 W, providing an energy conversion efficiency of up to 96%. These new power supplies permit fieldbus connection via snap-on type communication modules and feature WAGO’s exclusive high-performance TopBoost and PowerBoost capabilities for maximum system uptime and lower hardware costs. Another key advantage is that these units can be tailored to any application requirement, allowing parameters such as output voltage and overload behavior to be easily configured via software.

WAGO's Pro 2 Power Supplies are highly communicative, featuring optional fieldbus modules for constant communication via standardized protocols. The units also offer monitoring functions that provide continuous power supply data information and signal errors for seamless application monitoring. Users also have the option of choosing the fieldbus they want to connect with their Pro 2 units. An IO-Link module will be available at launch, with other modules for protocols such as Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP following soon after.

These slimline power supplies combine exceptional high-power density with excellent efficiency, requiring less space and generating less heat in the control cabinet.

The Pro 2 Power Supplies also feature performance-enhancing TopBoost and PowerBoost capabilities. TopBoost delivers 600% extra output current, enabling protection for up to 15 ms compared to conventional circuit breakers. PowerBoost provides an additional 150% output current for five seconds, providing superior reserve power and eliminating the need for oversized power supplies and their associated costs.

At a Glance:

  • Intelligent monitoring functions achieve transparency.

  • Save energy and space thanks to peak efficiency of 96.3%.

  • TopBoost or PowerBoost guarantee reliable system uptime.

  • Comprehensive parameterization possibilities enable customized power supplies.

Intelligent Monitoring Functions

Data from the WAGO Pro 2 Power Supply Unit (PSU) can be saved and analyzed for energy optimization; the central PLC can switch off distributed PSUs in parts of the system via a hardware signal or bus command in order to activate standby mode to save energy – and with the unit's monitoring functions, provide information about current power supply or connected load data.

Maximum Efficiency for Maximum Savings

These slimline power supplies combine exceptional high-power density with excellent efficiency, requiring less space and generating less heat in the control cabinet. The Pro 2 boasts an energy conversion efficiency of up to 96.3 percent. The combination of highly efficient power electronics and digital control enables savings on energy and operating costs, while cutting CO2 emissions.

TopBoost or PowerBoost

The high-performance TopBoost or PowerBoost guarantee maximum system uptime. Equipped with a flexible interface, the PSUs are ready for any application requirement. When required, parameters such as output voltage and overload behavior can be easily configured via software.

Custom Configuration

The “Electronic Circuit Breaker” function is a noteworthy configuration option. With it, users can reliably turn off the output when an overload threshold is exceeded after a predetermined time.
