Moxa ICF-1180I, ICF-1280I converters connect industrial devices in hazardous locations

Tuesday May 05, 2015
May 5, 2015 - Moxa is helping connect Profibus devices with its ICF-1180I and ICF-1280I Profibus-to-fiber converters, which now feature Class 1 Div 2, IEC Ex, and ATEX certification for deployment in hazardous locations including upstream and downstream petrochemical processing, chemical plants, and other areas where explosive vapours are present. The industrial-hardened units offer 2 kV isolation protection for the Profibus system and dual power inputs to ensure non-stop communications, says Moxa. Rated for operation in environments ranging from -40 C to 75 C, both units are capable of distances up to 4 km (2.5 miles) on multi-mode fiber, or up to 45 km (28 miles) on single-mode fiber in both ordinary and hazardous applications, a first for the industry, it adds.
