The 9460 product range provides cost-effective Intrinsically Safe (IS) Ethernet equipment that can be installed and maintained easily in hazardous areas.
In Process Automation it is also preferable to use a single cable to provide both power and communications to the end device. The 9460-ET range can deliver Intrinsically Safe Power over Ethernet (PoEx™) with a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable, allowing live connection and disconnection of the end device in Zone 0 and 1 hazardous areas.
IS Ethernet Isolator
The 9468-ET 10/100Mbps, Isolating Ethernet Barrier allows the interconnection of a Zone 2 or un-certified safe area device to the intrinsically safe 9400-ET series of Ethernet networking products, operating in the hazardous area. The isolating barrier provides a compact alternative solution to fibre optic cable and media converters and for when it is desirable to use Cat5e cables in preference to fibre.
