The IF300 Current to Fieldbus Converter is a very useful device in plant revamps.
Consider a situation where you are upgrading your instrumentation from a good old line of products to FOUNDATION Fieldbus or PROFIBUS PA.
Imagine the fact that some instrumentation could be very expensive and they may be still working well. There will be no sense to replace them just because they cannot be integrated in your new network.
Here comes the IF300 Current to Fieldbus Converter.
Each IF300 will be able to receive up to 3 current signals and convert them to be transported and integrated to your new communication network.
IF300 Current to Fieldbus Converter Types:
Current to FOUNDATION Fieldbus Converter - IF302
Up to 3 current signals will be integrated to participate in a FOUNDATION Fieldbus H1 network.
Current to PROFIBUS Converter - IF303
Up to 3 current signals will be integrated to participate in a PROFIBUS PA network.
The IF300 comes in 2 models. One for FOUNDATION Fieldbus and other to PROFIBUS PA integration.The input current can be the conventional 4-20 mA or 0-20 mA.
With the IF300 Current to Fieldbus Converter you can send your current signal to a digital bus in minutes. Consequently, this will give a considerably reduction on installation costs, operation and maintenance.
Now you can make a good legacy devices to participate in the digital world!
