Compatible with Limitorque non-intrusive MX multi-turn and QX quarter-turn actuators, the Profibus DP with Redcom network protocol complies with the Profibus specification 2.212_V and allows connection with a single or dual redundant channel networks (optional).
The new and improved DTM (Device Type Manager) greatly reduces the time required for configuring and acquiring pertinent diagnostic information.Features
- Significant reduction of redundant channel switchover times from 12-13 seconds to 500 ms.
- Increased safety and product integrity through double-sealed protection that isolates the controls compartment from corrosive or severe environments.
- Absolute encoders with built-in self-test (BIST) capability that switches to redundant circuits in the event of a single sided failure, allowing actuator to continue operation while highlighting the need for inspection.
- Optional 4th conduit for both MX and QX providing the user with dual conduits for network redundancy – one for ingress and one for egress.
