Reference : MTL9400
MTL, known for its leadership in Intrinsic Safety, is proud of another world first, Intrinsically Safe “Power over Ethernet” (PoEx™). This ground breaking technology brings the concept of a single cable connection for Industrial Ethernet enabled devices suitable for mounting in any hazardous area environment.
The range, consisting of an Ethernet Switch, Serial Gateway, Wireless access point, and Media Converter - all suitable for Zone 1 and Division 1 mounting - combine with a Zone 2 mounted Power Supply and Isolator unit to provide a complete “Ethernet anywhere” solution. The deployment of Ethernet into Process Automation has long been hindered by the hazardous area classification in which the end device is installed. Now the 9400-ET Series provides cost-effective, Intrinsically Safe (IS) Ethernet equipment that can be installed and maintained in Zone 1, Zone 0 and Division 1 hazardous areas in Surface Industry Group II and Mining Group I applications.
Additionally, in Process Automation it is preferred to use a single cable providing power and communications to the end device. The 9400-ET Series delivers Intrinsically Safe ‘Power over Ethernet’ (PoEx™) using a single Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable, allowing live connection and disconnection of the end device in hazardous areas and typically reducing the cost of installing the LAN in hazardous areas by 40%.
