Pepperl + Fuchs’ R2 FieldConnex® Segment Protectors are now UL listed for Div 2 applications. They are also FM/cFM approved for Div 2/Zone 2 applications. The segment protectors are smart fieldbus wiring blocks that provide short-circuit protection and energy limitation, and that isolate a single short from affecting the entire network. When the fault is repaired, R2 segment protectors automatically resume operation of the spur and make fieldbus segments extremely reliable. Other features include:
- T-Connector that allows the segment protector to be disconnected while leaving trunk communications uninterrupted.
- IP20 protection with DIN rail mounting in 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 spur configurations.
- Removable terminals with retaining screws, as well as bright LEDs for power, communication and short circuit status indication.
- Optional Polycarbonate, GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel enclosures.
