As a future technologoy for infrastructure, FieldConnex is already well-known and firmly established in all sectors of the process industry. True to the credo "Shaping the Future of Process Industries", Pepperl+Fuchs is now taking the next step towards the future: the Ethernet-APL rail field switch is the first product on the market with an Ethernet Advanced Physical Layer, or Ethernet-APL for short. This technology is the first to implement Ethernet in the harsh environments of process plants, and thus enables barrier-free, parallel communication. Digital communication via two-wire Ethernet is thus making its way into the field of process plants and makes IIoT applications easy to implement in process automation.
For modern fieldbuses, FieldConnex is connectivity from the market leader and always the right choice. With FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA, field devices can be easily and reliably integrated into any process plant. Fieldbus ensures smooth digital data communication between the plant and the control system and also provides power supply for all field devices.
Fieldbus topologies meet all the requirements of modern process plants. The High-Power Trunk concept provides plenty of power in the field of hazardous areas and supplies the field devices intrinsically safe. This is the flexibility you expect for your process:
