Pepperl+Fuchs is a leader in fieldbus connectivity for both safe and hazardous areas. The company has a reputation for producing cutting-edge products — innovations like FieldConnex, the infrastructure that connects control systems to field devices in process automation applications.
Fulfilling a need
The automation industry relies on fast communication based on Ethernet for highly synchronized production. Many solutions for the application of Ethernet in hazardous environments are slow, unreliable, complicated or costly. However, intrinsically safe Ethernet offers high-speed connections in hazardous areas, and results in cost reductions, simplified planning effort, fast commissioning and a long service life.
FieldConnex products feature the latest fieldbus technology, combined with expert know how and superior design. They feature advancements in fieldbus communications, such as advanced diagnostics, which enable powerful online monitoring of the fieldbus physical layer. Advanced diagnostics allow serious situations to be recognized and repaired before they negatively impact processes.
Pepperl+Fuchs’ Ethernet isolator is an intrinsically safe solution that allows data to pass through at high speeds without any buffering. Such solutions are ideal for applications where mobility and flexibility are required; for temporary installations; or for applications where the risk of cables breaking is high.
An industry leader
Pepperl+Fuchs has a superior product portfolio of award-winning technologies, and expertise in fieldbus and explosion protection. The company has a global support network, and works with best-in-class distributors across the globe — companies like Process Instruments & Components (P.I.C.), based in Markham, Ont.
