Remote I/O system for zone 1 ethernet
Product Announcement from R. STAHL, Inc.
Houston - The market-leading remote I/O system for zone 1/ division 1 applications has now been extended to feature its first operational communication interface for FOUNDATION fieldbus High Speed Ethernet.
While the system has supported the Modbus TCP protocol for basic Ethernet performance for some time, the new FF HSE-capable IS1 version now provides users with a more advanced and considerably more powerful Industrial Ethernet protocol implementation. Remote I/O technology allows users to deploy consistent plant communication networks integrating conventional, HART-capable and FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 devices. The combination of remote I/O solutions and the fast FF HSE protocol will thus become one of the most attractive signal connection solutions in process automation. R. STAHL clears the way for its use in hazardous areas.
