New backplane for exceptional safety and flexibility

May 2015 IS & Ex

The IEC 61508 compliant range of power rail mounted analog and digital IS interfaces is proof that PR electronics does not take short cuts when it comes to safety. The company’s expertise with functional safety and agile design processes enables it to supply SIL approved products for signal conditioning.

The innovative new backplane is the latest addition to the range of IS interfaces. As well as enabling up to 66% higher channel density, it simplifies mounting and wiring in larger installations and seamlessly integrates with standard DCS systems. The unique design offers a snap on/off feature for easy device replacement, while the 8, 16 and 32 I/O module slot configurations and compatibility with all PR 9000 products introduce a new standard in backplane flexibility and performance.

The range of IS devices offers exceptional reliability in volatile industries such as chemical, oil and gas, energy and pharmaceutical.
