(Twinsburg, OH) — Pepperl+Fuchs introduces R2 FieldConnex® Segment Protectors. The compact R2 family is particularly unique in that they allow the segment protector to be disconnected while leaving trunk communications uninterrupted, and inherently prevent over-termination that can cause start-up and commission problems. They are also designed to eliminate errors that can occur while connecting test leads for system diagnostics work.
R2 Segment Protectors provide IP20 protection with DIN rail mounting, in 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 spur configurations. They feature removable terminals with retaining screws, as well as bright LEDs for power, communication and short circuit status indication. They are FM/cFM approved for Div 2/Zone 2 application.
Each spur and trunk connector features built-in test lead connections for Pepperl+Fuchs’ popular Mobile Advanced Diagnostics Module (ADM). This eliminates the potential of causing shorts from incorrect wiring while connecting test leads for system diagnostics work.
Segment protectors are current limiting devices that provide an additional layer of dependability to the fieldbus network. They isolate a single short and keep it from affecting the entire network. When the fault is repaired the segment protector automatically resumes operation of the spur to help make fieldbus segments extremely reliable.
