: Compact Power Hub
Eight Segments / Small in the Cabinet
The Compact Power Hub is a modular power supply that consists of a motherboard for DIN-rail installation and individual power supply modules. It supplies 8 segments in redundant configuration with up to 30 V/500 mA. The redundant power supply and its extremely compact design with low heat dissipation makes the Compact Power Hub the first choice for large-scale projects where cabinet space is a key factor.
Compact Power Hubs are approved for installation in Zone 2 or Division 2 hazardous areas. The use of different power supply modules in combination with suitable fieldbus couplers enables implementation of various types of protection at the field device, such as flameproof enclosures Ex d, or intrinsic safety Ex ia, Ex ib acc. to FISCO/Entity or Ex ic acc. to Entity.
The Compact Power Hub features symmetric impedance generation for optimal signal quality. Impedance generation is based on passive components only, which guarantees low heat emission and a long operation life.
The motherboard is designed for DIN rail installation. All modules can be mounted on the motherboard without tools. Due to the redundant configuration, the power supply modules can be replaced without interrupting the power supply or communication.
All Compact Power Hubs support Advanced Diagnostics. The Advanced Diagnostic Module enables easy monitoring of various quality indicators of the fieldbus physical layer. This allows faster plant start-up, improved reliability of the fieldbus segments, and more efficient troubleshooting.
