LB remote I/O stations are mounted in Zone 2, Class I/Div. 2 hazardous areas. They form a modular signal conditioning system to interface signals from the field with a control system in the safe area. LB Remote I/O connects your conventional sensors and actuators to your DCS using a single standardized fieldbus connection (PROFIBUS, Modbus and others).
There is a wide spectrum of single and multi-channel I/O modules available offering intrinsically safe and safe area field connections. This ensures that engineering is easy and adaptable to the needs of your plant concept.
For dust hazardous area mounting (Zone 22, Class II/Div. 2), the system needs to be mounted in a cabinet that meets special specifications: the enclosure must be protected against falling dirt, circulating dust, and windblown dust .
