FB Remote I/O stations are mounted in hazardous areas Zone 1 or Zone 21. They form a modular signal conditioning system to interface signals from the field with a control system in the safe area. FB Remote I/O connects your conventional sensors and actuators to your DCS using a single standardized fieldbus connection (PROFIBUS, Modbus, Ethernet and others).
The plug-in input and output modules can be hot swapped in a running system without the need for a hot work permit.
There is a wide spectrum of single and multi-channel I/O modules available offering intrinsically safe and increased safety field connections. This ensures that engineering becomes easy and adaptable to the needs of your plant concept.
FB Remote I/O modules now have new features like redundancy backplanes, Ex-e front connectors, and extended intrinsic safety applications …
