Reliable Surge Protection for PROFIBUS Systems
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. -- Phoenix Contact's newest surge protector provides reliable protection for PROFIBUS systems, even in the smallest spaces. At just 35mm high, the D-UFB-PB is ideal for use in the latest generation of Siemens PLCs.
The D-UFB-PB is designed for PROFIBUS-DP applications with data rates up to 12 mbps. Surge protection is integrated into the fieldbus connector, saving space. The PROFIBUS cable connects directly to the surge protector, so there is no need for an additional protective device to be installed to the PROFIBUS connector.
"Communication systems such as PROFIBUS are a critical part of a customer's operation, and downtime is unacceptable," said Ed Doherty, product marketing manager for Phoenix Contact's TRABTECH surge product line. "Damaging surges can travel on signal lines, and we are pleased to offer a product that provides ease of installation and best-in-class surge protection."
The nine-position D-SUB plug combines a reliable surge protection circuit with an easy-to-install screw clamp terminal block, color coded for termination of PROFIBUS cables. The termination resistor is easily activated with a slide switch at the connector, saving installation and start-up time.
