Smallest fieldbus power supply solution
08 August 2016
The latest generation of the Power Hub power supplies from Pepperl+Fuchs is said to offer the most compact fieldbus power supply solution on the market.
The size helps to reduce the number of control cabinets needed. Further, due to the drastically reduced heat dissipation of the range, they do not require any active air conditioning which contributes to lower overall energy consumption while increasing system availability.
Pepperl+Fuchs is also offering a PROFINET gateway which supports PROFINET line redundancy and S2 system redundancy. However, a PROFIBUS DP gateway will still be offered as part of the line. Compatibility with its existing segment couplers 2 and 3 is also promised. This allows the Power Hub to be operated within an existing system environment allowing for a change to PROFINET anytime in the future.
The new Power Hub supports remote configuration and diagnosis via a Device Type Manager or web server. With an Advanced Diagnostic Module it is also possible to integrate it into a solution for continuous monitoring of the physical fieldbus layer.
