F11 Relcom Fieldbus Labkit
The Relcom Fieldbus Labkit (F11-Labkit) is a convenient kit containing the Relcom Fieldbus Power Hub
(F11) and a pair of cables (FCS-A05). Ideal for benchtops, labs, demonstrations and test setups, the Power
Hub is a mini Fieldbus segment in a box - just add devices and a host. The supplied cables allow connection to a Fieldbus device and a National Instruments
Fieldbus Interface card (USB, PCMCIA, or PCI).
A plug-in wall transformer with an input voltage range
of 100-240VAC (50-60Hz) is included with the Power
Hub. Adapters are supplied with the transformer for
four different country power outlets (North America,
Europe, UK, and Australia).
Internally the Power Hub contains a Fieldbus power
conditioner, two built-in terminators, and SpurGuard™
current limiters. There are five ports for attaching
devices (gray connectors), and an Auxiliary Port (black
connector) for connection of additional devices. Pluggable screw terminal connectors are used on all ports
for the Fieldbus connections. The connectors may be
secured to the Power Hub with the two retaining
screws if desired.
A minimum of 30mA is available for each Device port.
If the current requirements of a Fieldbus device exceed the capability of the Device port, the Auxiliary
Port can be used to provide additional power conditioned current. A total of 315mA can be supplied by
the Power Hub. If any of the Device Ports or the Auxiliary Port is overloaded, a red Overload indicator will
light.
F11 with Optional Battery Pack
For applications where AC power may not be available,
the FCS-A11 Battery Pack may be used to supply power to the Power Hub. For more information on the
FCS-A11 Battery Pack, see our product specification
PS-070.
For convenience, the Power Hub can be mounted on
standard ’top hat’ 35mm DIN rail.
A typical use for the Power Hub is to configure, precommission, test, or calibrate Fieldbus devices. In
this case, the Fieldbus device and host device
(Emerson 375 or 475, National Instruments Fieldbus
interface, etc.) are connected to the Power Hub. No
other components are required to have a functioning
Fieldbus segment.
Note: The F11 Power Hub is not intended to be used
in a permanent installation.
