- Galvanically Isolated Modules - KC Modules are Only 12.5 mm Wide
New compact KC intrinsic safety interface modules assure single loop integrity, have reduced space requirement and offer high quality galvanic isolation...
- Pepperl+Fuchs Advanced Diagnostics Module is Breakthrough Product of 2006 According to Processing Magazine
Pepperl+Fuchs' innovative Advanced Diagnostic Module (ADM) for the FieldConnex® Power Hub has been named the Breakthrough Product of 2006 by Processing magazine. The award recognizes products, services and/or technology that have made significant contributions in the process industries within the last year, and are expected to greatly impact the industry for years to come.
- VisuNet RM - PC Remote Control Station of the New Generation
VisuNet remote, is a PC remote control station with up-to-date transfer technology between PC, control and display unit. Based on Ethernet TCP/ IP and connected via an Ethernet interface in the explosive protection category.
- Device Configuration with PACTware™
Gone are the times when one needed merely a screwdriver to configure and assign parameters to field devices. For more than five years now the PACTware consortium of medium-sized equipment manufacturers and suppliers in the area of process automation and software, has offered the standard operating software known as PACTware.
- The New High-Density Power Hub for Fieldbus
The newest Foundation Fieldbus Power Hub is a fieldbus power supply. With an output of 25…27 V/360 mA up to four segments can be powered with this smaller relative of the already popular FieldConnex® Power Hub. This power supply is designed as a solution for many fieldbus applications where cable length and number of devices per segment require moderate output power.
- The SB-System: Reduced Mounting and Maintenance Costs with Pluggable Zener Barriers
Zener barriers offer a cost saving IS-protection in the process automation to limit the energy fed into intrinsic safety circuits. The SB-terminal bases and the SB-termination boards offer the ideal possibility of pre-wiring. The IS-circuit and the safe circuit are separated until the zener barriers are plugged in.
- Instrumentation Scotland in Aberdeen
Once again, Pepperl+Fuchs will be attending the Instrumentation Scotland event, which takes place on the 6th and 7th September 2006 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Aberdeen, Scotland.
- PC Platform Supports Process Documentation
The application of PC-based and networkable hardware platforms in the safe and explosion-hazardous areas now allows the use of standard HMI/ SCADA software. In the pharmaceutical industries, this technology can serve as the basis for FDA-compliant process documentation.
- New Power Modules Offer Extended Functionality
Power feed modules serve as a feed-in for our isolator modules in the K-system via the power rails and for the analysis of the collective error message. The user does not have to wire every individual interface module. Due to the collective error message, the control system requires only one alarm input.
- Pepperl+Fuchs and the Fieldbus Foundation
The Fieldbus Foundation has spread a world-wide network to allow end users and manufacturers to share experiences on this leading-edge process automation technology and to support further future-oriented developments.
- New FOUNDATION Fieldbus Power Supply
Pepperl+Fuchs introduces a simplex, galvanically isolated FOUNDATION Fieldbus Power Supply - KLD2-FBPS-1.25.360 - that provides 25 V and 360 mA of supply current with minimal heat dissipation, while supporting redundant 24 V power. These cost-effective modules can be mounted adjacent to one another without concern for spacing.
- PROFIBUS PA Works with Pepperl+Fuchs
Fieldbus installation technology by Pepperl+Fuchs has proven its value in real-life installations in operation today. We cordially invite you to find out how PROFIBUS can work for you in process automation at two events called “PROFIBUS – Meet the Experts”, sponsored by the PROFIBUS User Group, PNO.
- Segment Checker Updated with New Devices
Segment Checker makes designing a fieldbus network as easy as drag and drop! Pepperl+Fuchs released version 1.14 with new devices—amongst others the new PROFIBUS Power Hub and Segment Coupler SK3, a new FOUNDATION Fieldbus Power Supply and various field devices.
- Buehl to Become Competence Center
In an asset deal on 7 July, Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH acquired all business assets required for the transaction of the Intrinsic Safety Instrumentation business from COOPER Crouse-Hinds GmbH. The new location Buehl will become the core of product competence on the subject of remote I/0 systems.
- PACTware™ on Tour Again
In October of this year, the PACTware™ Roadshow will commence their third round of tours, taking place in Switzerland, France and Italy.
