Function: MB-FB-4R.HO.SC

The FieldConnex ®Universal Power Hub is a modular fieldbus power supply, providing the most options for most reliable communication. It supports explosion protection e.g. the High-Power Trunk for longest cable run and highest device count. The Power Hub supports optional Advanced Diagnostics for fast fieldbus commissioning and online monitoring.

The motherboard is the mounting plate for installation in the Honeywell C-channel. It connects to existing bulk power, communication and fault indication. Sockets for all modules enable simple installation and replacement without tools. For power redundancy with seamless transfer, pairs of modules feed each segment.

Availability and a long service life are achieved through: only one passive impedance filter per segment with CREST for superior signal transmission, optimized design for low power dissipation and high-availability fieldbus termination. Any mounting direction allows optimized and space-saving cabinet layout.
