Fiber-Interface-Repeaters

Fiber Interface Repeaters for standardized fieldbus protocols

Fieldbuses transmit relatively small amounts of data over large distances quickly and reliably. However, as a result of various legacy systems, there is a wide diversity of protocols and standards in use all over the world. The table below will help in narrowing your selection to find the right high-quality optical fiber cable modules for your systems.

Benefits

Hirschmann has developed industrial fiber optic cable repeaters for current fieldbus protocols. Even with extreme electromagnetic interference, they ensure secure, reliable transmission of fieldbus signals. In widespread plants, the fiber optic cables’ insulation characteristics provide natural lightning protection â€Â, thus increasing the plant’s operational safety. The repeaters are engineered for harsh application conditions and also have required ATEX, UL, FM and NEPSI certifications.

Applications

The fiber interface repeaters are ideal for use in real-time control networks that extend across long distances. They are used in harsh power applications, such as oil and gas production or pipelines, and in the transportation industry in highway traffic control systems. Other uses include water and wastewater systems, semiconductor factories, pipelines, steel and power plants and manufacturing systems that require large communication networks with high performance, reliability and data integrity requirements.
