PROCENTEC is to launch three brand-new ComBricks Fiber Optic modules to create optical redundant ring topologies with multi-mode and single-mode technology. These multifunctional modules are specifically designed by PROCENTEC to ensure reliable optical data transmission in PROFIBUS networks. It allows long cable distances up to 30 km and a galvanic isolation between devices and segments. The ComBricks FO Ring modules are especially suitable for applications in heavy EMC environments such as oil and gas, waste and water treatment, mines, cranes and tanks.
The ComBricks FO Ring module contains diagnostic LEDs which indicates a low level on the optics. Just like any other communication module, the channels are connected directly to the ProfiTrace over Ethernet in the Head Station. The advanced email functionality will alert you when faults like a broken ring or a low level occurs. Because busmonitor data is directly available in the web server, it allows technicians to optimally maintain a PROFIBUS installation. ComBricks FO Ring can be placed side by side with repeater modules allowing spur line diagnostics. It can be easily transformed to a remotely monitored fiber optic hub mixed with copper segments.
ComBricks Fiber Optic Ring modules are available for multi-mode technology, single-mode technology, and the combination of multi-mode and single-mode technology.
