Installing and replacing the new surge protectors is a quick and seamless process that can be performed on site. The devices are simply attached to the Segment Protector in the junction box. The time required and costs involved are considerably reduced since no additional wiring is necessary.
It is possible to retrofit an existing plant with surge protectors without the need for additional engineering work. Since the new surge protector for the fieldbus is available as an option without the self-diagnostic function, it can be easily attached to the FieldConnex® Segment Protector in existing plants.
Like all components in the new FieldConnex® diagnostic technology range, surge protectors are suitable for the FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 and PROFIBUS PA bus systems.
