Ethernet communication for Ex areas

By Chemical Engineering |

Hans Turck


The first Zone 2 Ethernet gateway for this company’s excom I/O system, the new GEN-3G excom gateway (photo), brings signals from Zone 0 at high data rates to the control system. For the first time, all process data can reach IT systems for analysis and evaluation at sufficient speed via a parallel data channel, which is a fast and easy way of implementing condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. The new GEN-3G multiprotocol device operates at high data rates in Profinet, Ethernet/IP or Modbus TCP networks without the need for manual intervention. The integrated gateway switch enables the implementation of linear topologies that can be connected easily in the network to form a ring. Besides the hardware redundancies for power-supply units and gateways, excom also supports redundancy concepts, such as S2 system redundancy to ensure maximum availability. — Hans Turck GmbH & Co. KG, Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany
