Eliminate I/O downtime with new EtherNet/IP DLR coupler

September 30, 2021   Don Horne

WAGO’s newest generation fieldbus coupler adds to an already extensive line of fieldbus independent couplers and supports Device Level Ring (DLR).

The new 750-366 utilizes the DLR’s protocol set up in conjunction with an EtherNet/IP network. Adding this coupler to a Device Level Ring topology network ensures that I/O communications remain online in case of a single point of failure.

Combined with any of WAGO’s 500+ I/O modules, this coupler provides the ultimate in application flexibility. The dual DLR Ethernet ports are used as an integrated switch, eliminating the need for additional devices such as Ethernet switches. Its fast boot-up time also enables systems to get online quicker.

Onboard web-based management allows for parameterization of the device along with seamless firmware updates. The 750-366 also supports a wide variety of additional protocols including HTTP(S), DHCP, DNS, SNMP, and FTP(S).
