Pepperl+Fuchs offers a variety of accessories to enable custom-fit remote I/O installations. Various D-sub connectors and cables to link the base and extension backplanes used for module mounting are available.
Different terminal blocks (screw, front screw, spring) with varying pole numbers can be purchased in blue or green versions indicating intrinsically safe or non-intrinsically safe connections. Protective covers for terminal blocks, cold junction blocks, and a watchdog plug are also part of the portfolio.
The product range is rounded out by a separation wall. It is mounted on the backplane between remote I/O modules with intrinsically safe circuits and remote I/O modules with non-intrinsically circuits, to maintain the 50 mm clearance between both types.
The new LB/FB PROFINET gateways from Pepperl+Fuchs open the door for IIoT 4.0 applications in process industries.
