FB Remote I/O stations are mounted in Zone 1 hazardous areas. They form a modular signal conditioning system to interface signals from the field to a control system in the safe area. FB Remote I/O connects conventional sensors and actuators to the DCS using a single standardized fieldbus connection (PROFIBUS, Modbus, Ethernet, etc.).
The plug-in input and output modules can be hot swapped in a running system without the need for a hot work permit.
There is a wide spectrum of single and multi-channel I/O modules available—ensuring that engineering is easy and adaptable to the needs of your plant concept.
