WAGO’s 750-366 fieldbus coupler supports DLR topology in a EtherNet/IP network.
WAGO’s introduced its 750-366, a fieldbus coupler that supports Device Level Ring (DLR) in conjunction with an EtherNet/IP network. A DLR topology network ensures that I/O communications remain online in case of a single point of failure. The coupler can be combined with any of WAGO’s 500+ I/O modules. Its dual DLR Ethernet ports are used as an integrated switch, eliminating the need for additional devices. Onboard web-based management allows for parameterization of the device along with firmware updates. The 750-366 also supports a variety of additional protocols including HTTP(S), DHCP, DNS, SNMP, and FTP(S).
