Network isolator provides protection in the network

02 April 2013

Phoenix Contact’s new FL Isolator 100-M12 network isolator provides protection when electric potential differences occur.

This galvanic separator is intended for heavy-duty use in all industrial Ethernet applications using M12 connection technology. It meets all requirements of the EN 50155 standard and is especially well-suited for use in rolling rail traffic.

Both the individual transmission lines and the cable shield are galvanically separated. Copper-based network components are reliably protected from potential differences and surge voltages up to 4 kV.

The level of interference immunity in industrial environments is significantly increased for data transmission rates of up to 100 Mbit/s. The network isolator is designed for wall mounting. A rail mounting kit is available as an accessory. The device can be incorporated into the cable connection upstream from the network participant or segment to be protected. Since the device is passive, it does not require a power supply.
