IS1+ CPU & power modules supply up to 16 I/O modules with intrinsically safe power and connect to all common automation systems.
RS485, or RS485-IS in Zone 1 and Class I, Div.1, is used for communicating via PROFIBUS DP and Modbus RTU. Fast, interference-free Ex op is 100 MBit/s fiber optic are used for the Industrial Ethernet connection via Modbus TCP, EtherNet/IP and PROFINET. System redundancy or integration into an optical ring to increase availability can also be supported, depending on the protocol.
A wide range of diagnostics is available either via a separate service bus or via the relevant process bus. These diagnostics can be easily integrated into plant asset management systems by an effective DTM.
