The DART Power Hub for FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 is based on the popular FieldConnex High-density Power Hub. It provides power to the segment and connections to the DCS system, so it is located at the end of the homerun cable in the control room cabinet. It detects the spark and switches it off.
The DART Power Hub features:
- Optional Advanced Diagnostic Module for physical layer monitoring
- Load-sharing redundancy of power modules
- Output Power: 22.5 V / 360 mA
- Host interface customizable for easy connection to any DCS
The DART Power Hub is first to introduce load-sharing redundancy. It balances the load current between the power modules. The power module operates in the best, most energy-efficient state reducing cooling requirements for the cabinet and increasing service life.
