The encryption meets the IEEE 802.1AE standard (IEEE MAC Security Standard), ensuring data integrity and authentication of the transmitter alongside high data throughput.

Interface Electronics

Energy Meters

Easy Installation and Configuration

Comprehensive energy measurement is necessary for optimizing energy consumption. WAGO now has new energy meters in its portfolio that simplify this task while providing several key advantages. The energy meters use the Push-in CAGE CLAMP® with lever, allowing them to be connected quickly and easily. The devices have a width of just 72 mm for direct measurement; versions for current transformers are even slimmer at only 35 mm. These widths save a tremendous amount of control cabinet space. In addition to the values for active and reactive energy, the energy meters also record the mains frequency, as well as current, voltage and power for all phases.

WAGO Pro 2 Power Supply

Communicative and Reliable in Demanding Environments

Ground Fault Detection

Early Ground Fault Detection

According to the IEC 60204-1 standard, measures must be taken to reduce the probability of malfunctions due to insulation faults/ground faults in a control circuit. A common option is connecting 0 V to the ground potential in the control circuit, in combination with an upstream fuse. With the new ground resistance signaling module, WAGO enables not only grounding of the 0 V potential, but also fully automatic detection of value underrun of a non-adjustable, unbalanced insulation resistance between +24 V and 0 V of the supply voltage and ground.

Electronic Circuit Breakers (ECBs)

Compact and Precise ECBs for DC Circuits

WAGO’s space-saving ECBs come into play when the focus is on not only safety and compactness, but also a superior price–performance ratio. They also enable the activation of high-capacitance loads of 50,000 μF and more, without increasing the rated current setting. One-, two-, four- and eight-channel models and current ratings from 0.5 to 12 A offer you the flexibility you need for setting the rated current to suit your individual application. With a maximum width of 45 mm (1.772 inches), these ECBs feature high channel density to save space in the control cabinet.
