Increasing the range and availability of PROFIBUS networks

17 July 2017

Belden has released a new version of its PROFIBUS fibre optic repeater. The OZD Profi 12M G22 allows PROFIBUS networks to communicate over longer distances through fast and reliable fibre optic signals, while also ensuring signal reliability through its integrated redundancy technology.

Control networks need real-time communications that are fast and highly reliable. This combination can be achieved through devices that place a priority on data integrity and high speeds. With data transfer rates up to 12 Mbps, Belden’s new repeater is said to be among the fastest in the world. If a fault were to occur, its built-in ring redundancy is able to automatically switch over to another ring segment to ensure maximum reliability. 

Specific enhanced capabilities of this repeater include extended operating distances for PROFIBUS communications thanks to two electrical and two optical ports; failsafe communications with built-in ring redundancy, without any measureable interruption; high data integrity, despite harsh environments, sheltered by a robust metal housing with protective coating on the internal components; and high-speed data transmissions of up to 12 Mbps.

The PROFIBUS fibre optic repeater is suited to use in real-time control networks that extend over long distances.
