A Bluetooth Ethernet Gateway (758-915) joins the range of WAGO automation products. The new gateway transparently transfers Ethernet protocols (e.g., PROFINET, MODBUS/TCP or EtherNet/IP) via Bluetooth wireless communication (Bluetooth2.0). Two gateways replace the standard communication line between two automation systems.
The internal circularly polarized antenna provides a reliable radio connection, even in heavily metallic environments. With its compact IP65 housing (66 x 36.2 x 91 mm) and standard M12 connectors, the gateway is ideal for use in harsh industrial environments, while meeting a variety of installation requirements.
Standard Bluetooth wireless technology for 2.402 to 2.480 GHz ISM band achieves a range of up to 400 m. Both frequency hopping and low emission mode allows operation in environments including other wireless systems (e.g., WLAN). The gateway’s pushbutton simplifies wireless connection between two automation systems. Additional configurations such as password and IP addresses may be performed via Web-based management. Bluetooth technology is capable of replacing wired transmission systems wherever they are difficult or even impossible to implement, for example, in slip ring applications, mobile drive or high-bay storage systems.
The new Bluetooth Ethernet Gateway from WAGO provides wireless Ethernet protocol transmission, allowing applications wherever wired systems are too difficult or even impossible to implement.
