It provides 8 short-circuit proof spurs with chatter suppression logic and automatic bus termination for line- and ring-topology, suitable for enhanced temperature ranges and protection class IP66.

Can this module be used in hazardous areas?

Yes, the module is suitable for use in hazardous areas and is certified for use in EX Zone 2 and EX Zone 22 environments. It is designed to meet the safety requirements for operation in potentially explosive atmospheres.

What type of protection does the module offer?

The module offers a high degree of protection with an IP66 rating, ensuring that it is dust-tight and protected against powerful jets of water, making it suitable for harsh industrial environments.

What are the operating temperature limits for the module?

The module is designed to operate within a temperature range of -40 °C to 70 °C, making it suitable for a wide range of industrial applications that may experience extreme temperature conditions.

How many field devices can be connected to the module?

The module can connect up to 8 field devices, providing a maximum total current output to field devices of 480 mA, with a current limitation per field device of 60 mA.

Does the module have any diagnostic functions?

Yes, the module is equipped with diagnostic functions and LED indicators for status monitoring of the main line and spur lines, which helps in quick troubleshooting and maintenance.

Is the module intrinsically safe according to the FISCO model?

No, the module is not intrinsically safe according to the FISCO model. It should be used in accordance with the safety guidelines provided for the specific hazardous area classifications it supports.

What type of cable should be used with the module?

Type A cable should be used with the module, with a cable diameter ranging from 4 mm to 9 mm and a conductor cross-section between 0.2 mm² and 2.5 mm².

What is the significance of automatic bus termination in the module?

Automatic bus termination is a feature that simplifies the installation and setup process by automatically terminating the bus communication lines, which helps to prevent reflection errors and ensures reliable communication between devices.

How is the module mounted and installed?

The module is typically mounted on a flat surface with the connections at the bottom. It requires a level, load-bearing, and vibration-free substrate for installation.
