InterlinkBT has announced its new short circuit junction tee for Foundation Fieldbus segments. Available from Micromax , the tee provides a rugged connection to all Fieldbus devices.
Mechanically strong, the new overmoulded design provides high corrosive resistance. The circuit board is completely encapsulated in UV stable polyurethane.
Available with stainless steel and nickel-plated brass connectors, the tee is rated to IP67 protection.
The junction tee provides short circuit protection to all six spurs. The current to each spur is limited to 55mA and provides a red LED indication if faulted.
This isolates the network from an individual device failure. The short circuit junction tee is FM approved for Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations.
Keyed for Foundation Fieldbus systems, the bus-in/bus-out feature eliminates the need for an additional splitter tee. A common ground is provided for all devices.
