FieldConnex® Compact Power Hubs: New Design Features and Greater Functionality

The latest FieldConnex® Compact Power Hubs offer new benefits

FieldConnex® Compact Power Hub
Compact and easy to engineer: Host system connectors with custom connection cables reduce wiring time and errors

Lower operating costs, increased system availability, smaller footprint, and longer service life: these are a few of the benefits that you can expect from the latest FieldConnex® Compact Power Hubs.

The Compact Power Hubs are designed for large-scale projects with long cable runs and high device counts. They host modular fieldbus power supplies for eight segments, with paired modules in each segment to ensure power redundancy. System cables provided by Pepperl+Fuchs make them easily adaptable to any kind of DCS. The Compact Power Hubs are characterized by extremely low heat dissipation, 1.6 W per channel compared to typical 3 W… 7 W today. The low heat dissipation helps reduce cabinet space and climate control requirements.

The Compact Power Hubs have been updated with a number of new features and options, including:

  • Preconfigured connectors and custom cables to reduce wiring time and errors
  • Preconfigured cables for Invensys Foxboro FBM228 and Honeywell C300 DCS systems available for even greater convenience
  • Redundant terminals to maximize system availability
  • Different motherboard designs allow for symmetric cabling, custom interfaces, and power supply module redundancy
  • Advanced Diagnostics Module for the physical layer for fast fieldbus commissioning and online monitoring

With top-of-the-line components, minimal footprint, and the lowest heat dissipation in the industry, Compact Power Hubs will provide flawless operation for a very long time.
