Fieldbus Foundation

Panasonic Monitors

By Connecting Expansion Unit of pulse input type, it can measure pulse signal from a sensor. By connecting expansion unit of analog input type, it can measure digital conversion value (voltage/current) from a sensor. KW2G Eco-Power Meter is the wattmeter that can measure electric power, current, voltage, PF and so on with combination of one main unit and expansion units (power measurement, power measurement + pulse output).

SymCom Tool

The Handheld Diagnostic Tool Informer MS is designed for use with MotorSaver Model 455s equipped with infrared LED transmitters. The Informer MS receives and displays MotorSaver data to assist in monitoring and troubleshooting the system. An auxiliary kit is available which allows the Informer MS to read data from a panel mounted Model 455 without opening the panel door. To retrieve this information, the Informer's receiver must be directed

Weidmuller FBCon DK6 Line-in Module with Overvoltage Protection & Current Limitation Distributor


The field devices with integrated fieldbus coupling are connected directly to the branch lines. The FBCon DK6 was designed for setting up fieldbus connections for individual applications - with up to 20 branch lines. The line-in module with overvoltage protection and current limitation (60 mA) form the individual fieldbus connector.

  • For Fieldbus Foundation and Profibus PA
  • LED indicator & 8 mm wide
  • Cross-connection of the trunk line to branch lines
  • Screw connection
  • For EEXme, EEX ia applications

Fieldbus Foundation

Fieldbus Foundation enables the operation of several PA sensors and actuators on one bus line. The devices are powered using twin cable technology, and the transmission of process data is digital. 32 devices can be operated in one segment. Repeaters can extend the maximum number to 126 stations with a maximum bus length of 10 km.

For a transmission rate of 31.25 kbps, the bus length can reach up to 1900 m without repeaters, or up to 1000 m in explosion-risk areas. The bus can be wired as a line, tree or star. A segment coupler is used to integrate the components in the Fieldbus Foundation network.

PROFIBUS-DP Distributors

The PROFIBUS-DP topology is a line structure. The spur (T-distributor) connects the individual field devices or remote I/Os to the bus cable. The length of the spur cable depends on the transmission rate and should be as short as possible. The total of all spur lengths for transmission rates up to 1.5 MBaud may not exceed max. 6.6 m. The trunk cable passes through an EMC cable gland into an aluminium or stainless steel enclosure where it is connected to a tension clamp terminal. The spur line to the device is connected using a B-coded M12 socket or an EMC cable gland. Terminating resistors must be wired onto the start and end of the PROFIBUS-DP network. The terminator modules can take care of this task. The electrically isolated 24-VDC power supply for the bus terminator is routed into the cable gland on the right side. The housing features a pressure-compensation mechanism that counters the effects of climatic fluctuations. The guidelines issued by the PROFIBUS user organisation must be observed.

PROFIBUS-PA Distributors

The PROFIBUS-PA enables the operation of several PA sensors and actuators on one bus line. The devices are powered using twin cable technology, and the transmission of process data is digital. A segment coupler is used to integrate the components in the PROFIBUS-DP network. Specific advantages of PROFIBUS-PA:

  • Low wiring costs
  • Minimal planning costs for the process control system
  • Remote interrogation or programming of the field device
  • Further development and support by the PROFIBUS User Organisation
