New WAGO Interface Offers Improved Engine Monitoring

April 21, 2011
Wisconsin-based company releases function block to increase large-engine efficiency

WAGO Corp.’s new J1939 Interface function block increases large-engine efficiency by tracking and reacting to engine-performance parameters via WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM. WAGO’s J1939 Interface is compatible with SAE’s J1939 Protocol favored by prominent engine manufacturers. This enables WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM Programmable Controllers and IPCs to cost-effectively monitor and optimize engine operation on large vessels, generator sets or within plants.

Monitoring multiple engines on one CAN network, WAGO’s J1939 Interface directs WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM components to run auxiliary devices, such as cooling fans or execute alarm start/stop and speed-control functions. Engine data may also be transferred to a local HMI or SCADA system via Fieldbus.

The majority of WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM controllers, couplers and modules carry key approvals including UL, ABS, DNV, GL, CE and ATEX. These make WAGO’s J1939 Interface and WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM ideal for diverse engine monitoring applications.
