Reliable insulation from the field to the network

The Mini Analog Pro signal conditioners (photo), featuring bus and network connection, combine the benefits of safe electrical isolation with those of digital communication. Up to eight field signals can be transmitted to industrial networks without error on less than 50-mm overall width. Signal-specific input cards are no longer required. The highly compact modules (6.2-mm width) provide all conventional signal-transmission functions: analog, temperature, frequency or switch signals are processed safely and transmitted to output signals. The new plug-in gateways digitize this output data and send it directly from the interface level to the control system or PLC via a serial communication protocol, such as Modbus or Profibus. — Phoenix Contact GmbH & Co. KG, Blomberg, Germany
