The isolating barrier provides a compact alternative solution to fibre optic cable and media converters and for when it is desirable to use Cat5e cables in preference to fibre.
The 9468-ET is designed for Zone 2 hazardous-area mounting inside a suitable IP6x enclosure and has intrinsically safe ATEX and IECEx approvals, with FM and CSA approvals pending.
The approvals cover both surface industry and mining applications. 10/100Mb Ethernet twisted pair (Cat5e) RJ45 connections (100metres length max). These RJ45 ports provide total galvanic isolation (Um=253Vac) from safe to hazardous areas.
