This device provides a repeater function between three CAN-bus segments. The first one connects via a DIN-rail mounted T-bus or via an ordinary 5-way terminal block and provides power for the logic core and the second segment. The optional second segment connects via fibre-optical cable with ST connections. The third segment is a normal ‘copper’ CAN-bus with ATEX intrinsic safe isolation and safety parameters. This allows for installing interfaces and sensors inside ‘Zone 2 or zone 22’ potentially explosive environments.
- Two- or three-way CAN-bus repeater
- Bus connection for main power + CAN-bus up to 1Mbps
- Intrinsic safe CAN-bus connection (needs power from the hazardous side)
- Optional fibre-optic CAN-bus link
