Pepperl+Fuchs amplifiers enable users to simultaneously transfer switch and fault signals via a single output.
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced three switch amplifiers with line fault transparency (LFT). The company’s NIC2831 and HIC2832 are one- and two-channel switch amplifiers with LFT suitable for mounting on termination boards. The K-System KFD2-SOT2-EX1.N provides line fault transparency to the control system in a standard DIN rail mounting configuration. These one- and two-channel switch amplifiers reduce wiring and provide process automation users with comprehensive monitoring of field and control lines. In addition, they can transfer switch signals on each individual channel. Integrating switch amplifier with LFT technology requires a digital input with line fault detection in the control system.
