Ethernet adapters provide tool-free terminations
WAGO’s 756 Series M12 Socket Ethernet Adapter simplifies the integration of machine-mount IP67 components with IP20 controls.
Providing tool-free terminations, the D-Coded M12 Adapter features a traditional cable-based RJ45 Ethernet socket that routes data through a screw-locking M12 connector. A panel-mount design and availability in right-angle (756-9503) and straight (756-9504) variants eases integration into existing systems.
The adapters provide Class D (up to 100 MHz) transmission performance. To support data transmission to/from components in harsh environments, the adapters are 360° shielded to Category 5 standards. Network-based configuration replaces proprietary handheld configuration units and required training to streamline machine-building and control applications for industries such as packaging, food/beverage and pharmaceutical.
750-675 also economizes device maintenance, minimizing service for difficult-to-access applications. The I/O-Link Module bolsters application reliability via vibration-proof and maintenance-free CAGE CLAMP Spring Pressure Connection Technology. Approvals: CE Conformity, UL/cUL (UL 508) and Electromagnetic Immunity (EN 61000-6-2).
