Hazardous area approval for the new high-speed SHDSL modems
The chemical and petrochemical industries involve industrial processes which produce explosive atmospheres.
Therefore, electrical devices in potentially explosive areas are subject to special directives.
In order to also integrate remote devices in the Ex area into your network using broadband, the new SHDSL high-speed modems are now also available with Ex II 3G Ex nA II T4 X approval.
SHDSL modem properties
All SHDSL modems for Ethernet, PROFIBUS, and serial networks have two DSL ports in order to start up point-to-point connections, path redundancy, linear structures, and star structures quickly, easily, and cost-effectively.
Depending on the interface used, data rates of up to 30 Mbps can be achieved on the existing copper cables. At lower data rates, distances of over 20 km could be covered in practice.
Overview of the most important benefits:
- Extremely user-friendly
- No need for configuration via DIP switches
- Transparent in the network
- Various diagnostic functions
- Two configurable alarm outputs
