LB/FB Remote I/O Systems
Dec 10, 2009
LB/FB Remote I/O SystemsThe LB/FB Remote I/O Systems are designed to facilitate the connection of traditional input and output signals onto a bus network, LB/FB systems support general-purpose or intrinsically safe applications with modules that can be mixed and matched on the same backplane. These systems facilitate connection to PROFIBUS DP, Modbus, and Foundation fieldbus for all traditional signal types, including discrete, analog, frequency and temperature. Redundancy for the communication interface and power supply ensures high reliability. LB/FB Remote I/O System users benefit from: Reduced wiring; fewer DCS control cards; fewer terminations for reduced installation costs; no need for marshalling panels; reduced control cabinet space needs; and faster commissioning. LB systems are designed for general-purpose as well as intrinsically safe (IS) applications and are rated for Division 2 mounting with inputs, and/or outputs mounted in a Division 1/Zone 0 area. FB systems are designed for intrinsically safe or increased safety applications and rated for Zone 1 mounting with inputs, and/or outputs mounted in a Zone 0 area. With LB systems, IS and general-purpose modules can be mixed and matched on the same backplane. LB systems include a backplane, communication interface, power supply, and I/O modules. They can be DIN Rail mounted for easy integration.
