Pepperl+Fuchs Announces New FieldConnex™ Fieldbus Power Hub Provides Multiple Power Supplies for Fieldbus Devices via Digital Data Lines
TWINSBURG, OH – Pepperl+Fuchs introduces the FieldConnex™ Fieldbus Power Hub (FPH), the latest component-level solution to their popular FieldConnexTM Fieldbus Installation System. This modular power supply system for FOUNDATION Fieldbus (FF-H1) provides multiple power supplies for Fieldbus devices via digital data lines.

The Fieldbus Power Hub consists of a motherboard with single or redundant plug-on modules. Multiple plug-on modules are available, including:

* Isolated power module with 30V and 500mA - designed for high power in the field, especially if used with Segment Protectors or FieldBarriers.

* Isolated FNICO power module with 17V and 500mA - dedicated for FNICO installation if used in conjunction with segment protectors.

* Non-isolated module with Host Spur Protection – designed for use with both Segment Protector and FieldBarrier, while providing additional network segment protection in conjunction with the redundant Host cards. If one card short circuits, the other card and the Fieldbus segment itself will still continue to operate.

The FPH is designed for installation on DIN-rails, and integrates Fieldbus segment connections, their appropriate terminators, as well as Host-specific system plug connectors. The FPH follows the passive design of powering the Fieldbus network, while providing redundant galvanic isolation and Host Spur Protection respectively. New cross-talk resonance suppression technology ensures proper communication, which is particularly helpful in the event of wiring and ground faults.

Pepperl+Fuchs is a world leader in the design, manufacture and application of high quality process automation products and services. Pepperl+Fuchs is the number one provider of hazardous area technology from intrinsic safety to purge and pressurization, on-line corrosion monitoring and Fieldbus.
