Article Reprints, White Papers and a Poster to Keep You Up to Date with Fieldbus Technology
...to keep you up to date with fieldbus technology
Pepperl+Fuchs ranks among the leaders in fieldbus technology. We will keep you up to date with first-hand information …
Selected articles from renown European magazines, such as CHEManager Europe and cpp (chemical plants + processing) contain relevant information for fieldbus users. They provide compact discussions of new technologies and are written with the requirements of practical application in mind.
Additionally, we provide you with a poster to give you a quick overview over the vital facts concerning the fieldbus and its real-life application.
Not to forget the Ethernet. A special technical white paper compares physical aspects and application data, providing you with deep insight into the importance of the physical layer for the everyday process. Here, you will also read everything about intrinsically safe date connections at 100 Mbit/s.
The latest news from our website: Ethernet within explosion hazardous areas
White Paper Ethernet Isolator
The technical white paper "Intrinsically safe Ethernet for the Hazardous Area" gives a practical comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of various Ethernet transmission media for modern process control. You can download your free copy on our website. You will also find a brochure and a data sheet about our new and popular Ethernet Isolator. The Ethernet Isolator is the very latest innovation from Pepperl+Fuchs. It is another result of our comprehensive expertice in explosion protection and allows intrinsically safe plug-and-play Ethernet connections based on standard patch cables.
New publications: Fieldbus supports integrated process plant management
Articles in CHEManager Europe and cpp
Articles taken from magazines, such as CHEManager, CHEManager Europe, cav and cpp discuss fieldbus as the enabling technology for integrated plant asset management. One of the conclusions is the fact that fieldbus diagnostics is considerably easier to work with than point-to-point interface technology.
The fieldbus is the "cost saver with long-time effect". Although field devices with fieldbus interface are slightly more expensive, investing in such devices results in long-term cost savings compared to conventional technology. One reason is that they enable proactive maintenance strategies for all plant assets.
cpp published an article entitled: "Total insight for total control". It explains why the multimeter is actually no longer necessary. Using it not only appears rather clumsy when compared with modern online diagnosis tools. Modern tools also save valuable time during loop checks, therby supporting easier and faster plant start-up. In addition, fieldbus infrastructure and installation are well documented, leading to increased plant uptime. In addition, continuous monitoring of the fieldbus physical layer allows proactive plant maintenance.

New fieldbus poster: All technical aspects at one glance
The new fieldbus poster from Pepperl+Fuchs is not only an ideal tool for presentations. It also helps to have all relevant facts concerning fieldbus technology always at hand. Don't' hesitate to ask your local Pepperl+Fuchs representative for your personal copy.
A diagram shows all available methods for explosion protection utilizing the High-Power Trunk concept. This de-facto standard combines the largest number of devices and longest distances for the trunk – while at the same time preserving the ability to work on field devices without requiring a hot work permit.
Using this poster, the fieldbus loses its complexity. It not only explains all relevant measurements for physical layer diagnostics. It also describes vital technical aspects, such as termination or cable types and lengths for trunk and spurs.
The FieldConnex poster is available in English, German, French, Hungarian, Czech, Finish and Portuguese. Ask your Pepperl+Fuchs representative for your personal copy.
