Fieldbus Modules Save Space, Energy
Schneider Electric released a new I/O family for its Foxboro Evo process automation system. The Foxboro Compact 200 Series I/O fieldbus modules support more I/O modules in less space, reducing footprint up to 50 percent.
The FBMs are suitable for new implementations in confined spaces, such as offshore platforms, and for adding capacity to existing installations. Higher-density baseplates and optional cabinets contribute to footprint reduction.
The Compact 200 Series I/O modules are compatible with multiple generations of Foxboro controllers, software and infrastructure, and they provide the ability to mix and match I/O types on the same controller. They are the latest addition to the Foxboro Evo system’s flexible I/O sub-system family, which includes its 100-percent software-configurable Foxboro Intelligent Marshalling universal I/O solution; competitive migration plug-and-play modules; and intrinsically safe I/O options.
