9470 Gigabit IS Ethernet range
The 9470 product range provides cost-effective Intrinsically Safe (IS) Gigabit Ethernet equipment that can be installed and maintained easily in hazardous areas.
The intrinsically safe hazardous area certification permits the components to be mounted in a Zone 1 hazardous area with connectivity into Zone 0 and the associated apparatus certification of the 9468-ET IS Ethernet isolator and 9492-PS-PLUS power supply allow this equipment to be mounted in a Zone 1 hazardous area and connected to intrinsically safe equipment in a Zone 0 hazardous area.
In Process Automation it is also preferable to use a single cable to provide both power and communications to the end device. The 9470-ET/ETG range can deliver Intrinsically Safe Power over Ethernet (PoEx™) with a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable, allowing live connection and disconnection of the end device in Zone 0 and 1 hazardous areas.
Also the new Gigabit range is suitable for bandwidth intensive applications and the 9476-ETG switch comes with advanced managed features.
