The white paper by MooreHawke, a division of Moore Industries titled ‘Bridging the Intrinsically-Safe Fieldbus Disconnect’ presents an overview of different ways to safely implement PROFIBUS PA or FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 networks in hazardous areas while maintaining cost control and the inherent advantages of fieldbus.
The white paper highlights different methods of designing and installing fieldbus in hazardous areas including Entity, FISCO and High-Powered Trunk with field barriers. It also explores the High Power Intrinsically-Safe Trunk concept pioneered by MooreHawke, which allows users to get up to 350mA of I.S. power into a hazardous area by utilising a patented split-architecture design.
The white paper aims to provide a better understanding of the complexities of Intrinsically-Safe fieldbus designs and also includes a full-page chart highlighting key data points and installation advantages unique to each method.
The white paper is available for download on the Moore Industries website.
