WAGO in Marine Applications

Solutions for Propulsion Control

Our automation and electrical interconnection technologies for propulsion and steering systems have proven themselves on the high seas and under the most difficult conditions.

Marine Propulsion Technology Is Being Put to the Test

Trends such as slow steaming, dual fuel, exhaust gas reduction, hybrid propulsion and LNG as fuel describe are increasing powertrain complexity. In this light, demands for intelligent automation solutions make perfect sense. The portfolio for the intrinsically safe WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM 750 enables you to automate LNG propulsion systems or retrofit scrubber and filter systems for exhaust gas reduction.

The 750 XTR Series components are specifically bolstered for use with particularly high or low ambient temperatures, extreme vibration or EMC conditions. Our power supply modules are designed for more stringent availability and reliability requirements. In the event of a fault, single- and multi-phase power supplies and buffer modules ensure automation system availability. Protection of the secondary circuits is conveniently provided via remote-controlled electronic fuses. Energy measurement modules for diesel electric propulsion systems and an extensive portfolio of signal converters and signal amplifiers complete the product range.
