This PROFIBUS fiber optic repeater from Hirschmann combines two copper and two fiber optic ports with fast ring redundancy for very reliable, high-speed fieldbus communications.
The OZD Profi 12M G22 repeater has two electrical and two optical ports, allowing you to extend the range of your PROFIBUS networks. Its optical signal quality is easy to monitor thanks to informative LEDs on the device itself and signal strength outputs that can be integrated into the process control system.
This fiber optic repeater plays an important role in assuring high network availability. With integrated ring redundancy, it automatically switches a signal transmission over to another ring segment in case of faults, such as a fiber break, without any measurable interruption, i.e., within 0 milliseconds.
With data transfer rates of up to 12 Mbps, the OZD Profi 12M G22 repeater is also amongst the fastest in the world.
The OZD Profi 12M G22 fiber optic repeater is designed for high availability PROFIBUS networks. It extends two electrical PROFIBUS network segments using fiber optic cables and provides seamless redundancy against fiber breaks.
This PROFIBUS fiber optic repeater is ideal for use in real-time control networks that extend across long distances. It is used in power applications, such as oil and gas production or pipelines, and in the transportation industry in highway traffic control systems.
Other uses include water and wastewater systems and manufacturing systems that require large PROFIBUS communication networks with high performance, reliability and data integrity equirements.
The OZD Profi 12M G22 device extends a proven family of fiber optic repeaters from Hirschmann to offer an additional copper port. With this option, you can increase the operating distance for PROFIBUS networks, while still maintaining data integrity, high speeds, redundancy and protection from electromagnetic interference.
