With Softing’s FG-200, it is possible to integrate up to four FOUNDATION™ Fieldbus (FF) H1 links into control systems supporting Modbus. The FG-200 provides redundancy and is suitable for use in hazardous areas. This device features fast access to process data, while making use of FF advantages like reduced cabling, central field device parameterization, comprehensive diagnostics, or intrinsically safe device segments. It is compatible with the R. STAHL bus-Carrier Series 9419 and Fieldbus Power Supply Series 9412 products for easy commissioning.
The FG-200 is the successor product of FG-110. End of Life Announcement FG-110.
|CPU||PowerPC 805T 100 MHz||Cortex A9 400 MHz|
|H1 Interface (MAU)||Inductive coupling (no bus power required)||Bus-powered (10 mA drawn from bus)|
|Ethernet Ports||1||2 (medium redundancy, same IP address)|
|Redundancy Communication||Serial Link (115,2 kBit/s) and Ethernet||Serial Link (1 MBit/s) only, no load on Ethernet|
|Cabling||All connectors on front side||Fieldbus: bottom|
Power: top or power bus in DIN rail
|Mechanical Compatibility||STAHL bus carrier|
|Dimensions||131 mm x 47 mm x 111 mm||100 mm x 35 mm x 105 mm (- 46%)|
|Engineering||✔||Existing projects can be downloaded without any changes|
|Mechanical Dimensions||✔||Smaller in each dimension: Same cabinet can be used|
|Bus Power Supply||❍||10 mA required per Link (same as for all devices and most host systems)|
FISCO Power Supplies with separate host interface must provide 10 mA on host side
|Cabling||✖||Different positions, different connectors: Cables have to be modified|
FG-100/FG-110 and FG-200 cannot cooperate as redundant pair:
No replacement of FG-110 by FG-200 in run possibe. Complete redundant pair of Linking Devices has to be replaced at same time.
For the conversion of MTL 9107-22 redundant power supply to MTL 0109-22 the following components are required:
