Pepperl+Fuchs Ethernet-APL Rail Field Switch

The Pepperl+Fuchs Ethernet-APL Rail Field Switch is a ruggedised, managed field switch offering connectivity for Ethernet-APL devices to Ethernet networks via any protocol. These connections are called spurs. The spur ports provide intrinsically safe, Ex icIIC and Ex iaIIC with power and communication to instruments that may be located in Zone 2, 1 or 0.

The Ethernet-APL rail field switch allows users in process plants to deploy Ethernet beyond the control room throughout the plant. The field switch provides seamless, transparent and simultaneous access to field instrumentation, and in doing so, it enables new applications and therefore new work processes for how users work with instrumentation and other devices installed in a process plant.

Bringing digital communication via two-wire Ethernet into the field allows for easier implementation of IIoT applications into process automation applications. All parties involved, from the planner to the user to the maintenance personnel, are therefore able to reduce risks and increase safety, quality and yield.
