P&F Process Automation:
Pepperl+Fuchs is a global market leader of industrial safety equipment for intrinsic safety and explosion protection technology. They offer a complete range of solutions for the process automation industry that includes intrinsic safety isolators, zener barriers, signal conditioners, fieldbus technology, remote I/O, HART interfaces, Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) for hazardous environments, custom cabinets, junction boxes and separator alarm systems.
P&F has also developed a complete line of on-line corrosion & level measurement products and purge & pressurization units. Target industries for our Process Automation division are the chemical pharmaceutical, petrochemical, oil & gas, industries, as well as wastewater treatment and power technology.
Pepperl+Fuchs offer the widest selection of Isolated Barrier products for protection of electrical signals located in hazardous areas. These intrinsic safety modules combine the energy limiting features of a zener barrier with galvanic isolation.
Zener Barriers provide cost saving Ex-protection for various applications in process automation systems. The amount of energy transferred to the hazardous location is limited to a safe level incapable of igniting the explosive atmosphere. Pepperl+Fuchs offers a wide product portfolio of housing and connection styles, which include DIN rail, termination board mounted, and accessories for each application.
Signal Conditioners take signals from an assortment of field instruments such as thermocouples and RTDs, and convert those signals into any of several standard instrument signals (1…5V, 4…20 mA, etc.).
Fieldbus Infrastructure link field instrumentation to any process plant. Fieldbus provides seamless data communication between the plant and control system while supplying power to all field devices. Fieldbus topologies fit the demands of modern process industries.
Remote I/O Systems
Remote I/O systems are the cost-effective connection of your field signals in the hazardous and the safe areas to your process control system via the fieldbus. A variety of gateways are available for the connection to different fieldbusses. Free combinable I/O modules and high modularity offers cost-saving installations.
HART Interface Solutions
HART Interface Solutions from Pepperl+Fuchs consist of two HART Multiplexer Systems for multiple signal loops and a HART Loop Converter for single loop applications. The Multiplexer is used to connect HART field devices to Asset Management Systems. The HART Multiplexer acts like a gateway device, routing communications between the maintenance workstation PC and the HART field devices.
Level Measurement technology is the basis for management and process control in the chemical, petrochemical, environmental and other related industries. P&F level and continuous level measurement products detect the precise level of any medium, under a wide range of conditions.
Purge & Pressurization Systems
Pepperl+Fuchs Bebco EPS Purge/ Pressurization Systems offer a safe and economical approach to installing electrical equipment in hazardous locations. By creating a safe area inside a standard enclosure, general-purpose equipment can be used in hazardous (classified) areas.
Pepperl+Fuchs offers a wide range of visualization and monitoring solutions- from operator workstations like Panel PCs, Remote Monitors or industrial monitors to compact, high-performance operator panels. Our monitor solutions are rugged, industrial products designed for hazardous areas and heavy-duty use as well as for cleanroom and GMP-related applications.
Pepperl+Fuchs understands the need for reliable power in hazardous areas. Our Power Supplies meet the most demanding requirements for today’s process control applications, and help to enhance system integrity.
