WAGO Corporation introduced its IP65-rated WLAN Wireless Ethernet Gateways designed to replace Ethernet network cables. The 758-916 (2.4 GHz) and 758-917 (5 GHz) Wireless Ethernet Gateways (WEGS) transmit data up to 1,300 ft (400M) line-of-sight. The WEGs wirelessly transmit ETHERNET protocols, e.g., MODBUS/TCP, EtherNet/IP or PROFINET. With a IP65 housing, the gateways feature an integrated antenna (circularly polarized for heavily metallic environments and on-unit LEDs for at-a-glance diagnostics/operational status updates. In addition the Industry Canada and FCC-approved units feature M12 cables to provide power and Ethernet connectivity.
