Surge Protection
In process engineering plants such as refineries with exposed building parts or extensive water management systems, surge events can cause disastrous consequences: from damage or destruction of expensive components and machines to breakdown of complete automation systems—not including risks to personnel.

Devices for Signal Line Protection
Devices for signal line protection reliably protect measurement and control signals in interface technology against overvoltages—in both field level and I/O level of control systems. Get to know Pepperl+Fuchs' surge protection modules for use in a variety of operational conditions.

Devices for Supply Line Protection
These AC surge protection barriers protect mains power supplies with 30/115/230 V against destructive power surges. The pluggable modules feature front-sided indicators delivering operating state and error message outputs ensuring a quick and easy maintenance. Due to the hot-swap technology, the M-LB AC surge protection modules can be replaced without any tools. The modules can be mounted on DIN rails, thus, installation is fast and easy.

Incremental rotation coders
Rotary Encoders
Rotary encoders can be used in all applications that require monitoring rotation rate, speed, acceleration and direction. These sensors can be utilized in many applications found in mechanical engineering, the conveyor industry, material handling and the packaging industry. You are certain to find a suitable rotary encoder for your application from our broad product offering.

Absolute Rotary Encoder
Absolute rotary encoders provide a distinctly coded numerical value for each shaft position. In positioning tasks in particular, the absolute encoders relieve the controller of computation tasks and keep costs down by eliminating the need for additional input components.

Incremental Rotary Encoders
Incremental rotary encoders supply a certain number of pulses for each shaft revolution. Speed is measured by counting the pulses for a period of time. To calculate angle or the distance covered, pulses are counted starting from a reference point.

Cable Pulls
Cable pulls enable a rotary encoder to measure linear motion by providing a cable that is pulled in a straight line by the application.

HART Interface Solutions
HART Interface Solutions from Pepperl+Fuchs consist of two HART Multiplexer Systems for multiple signal loops and a HART Loop Converter for single loop applications. The Multiplexer is used to connect HART field devices to Asset Management Systems like AMS™ Suite: Intelligent Device Manager from Emerson Process Management. At the heart of HART Interface Solution (HIS), the HART Multiplexer acts like a gateway device, routing communications between the maintenance workstation PC and the HART field devices.

It interrogates each HART device, retrieves device information, and stores it in an internal database. This information is made available by the AMS Device Manager or PACTware. The HART Multiplexer also acts as a message coordinator for communication between the maintenance workstation PC and the HART devices. For a single loop solution, the HART Loop Converter allows access to all process variables provided by a field device and transfers them to conventional 4...20 mA loop. This enables it to make use of the hidden measurements done by many field devices and feed them to conventional DCS Systems

K-System HIS
The HIS devices feature the housings of our popular K-System intrinsic safety barriers and can be flexibly mounted on DIN rail. This is ideal for flexible upgrading of existing installations without any need for close DCS integration.

H-System HIS
The HIS devices follow the form factor of the termination board-mounted H-System intrinsic safety barriers. This system is ideal for applications requiring tight DCS or system integration.

Remote I/O Systems
Modular remote I/O systems transmit process data from safe or explosion hazardous areas by connecting binary and analog sensors and actors to the control system via a bus interface. Remote I/O is the right choice when you want to put I/O modules close to the field devices. Due to the reduced wiring effort, you not only save cables, but also time, money, and work effort. Hence, remote I/O field units can be installed in a decentralized location inside hazardous areas while you easily control and monitor sensors and actors from the control room.

You can connect 4 mA … 20 mA devices to remote I/O, including water flow transmitters, valve positioners, pressure transducers, or temperature transmitters. Devices such as thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), mechanical contacts, and visual or audible alarms may also be connected.


FB Remote I/O stations are mounted in Zone 1 hazardous areas. They form a modular signal conditioning system to interface signals from the field to a control system in the safe area. FB Remote I/O connects conventional sensors and actuators to the DCS using a single standardized fieldbus connection (PROFIBUS, Modbus, Ethernet, etc.).


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 to a control system in the safe area. LB Remote I/O connects conventional sensors and actuators to the DCS using a single standardized fieldbus connection (PROFIBUS, Modbus, etc.).

Intrinsic Safety Barriers
Intrinsic safety barriers from Pepperl+Fuchs limit the energy that is supplied to a circuit and protect hazardous areas from excess energy. By limiting energy to a safe level, intrinsically safe circuits prevent the ignition of potentially explosive atmospheres. This simplifies maintenance and repair of Ex i circuits.

Pepperl+Fuchs offers a variety of intrinsic safety barriers for different requirements. Select between isolated barriers and Zener barriers that ensure safe signal transmission in hazardous areas.

Isolated Barriers
Intrinsic safety barriers are the core of Pepperl+Fuchs' product portfolio. We offer the widest selection of products for protection of electrical signals located in hazardous areas. These intrinsic safety modules combine the energy limiting features of a zener barrier with galvanic isolation. Pepperl+Fuchs offers systems for different applications and mountings.

Zener Barriers
Zener barriers provide cost saving Ex-protection for various applications in process automation systems. The amount of energy transferred to the hazardous location is limited to a safe level incapable of igniting the explosive atmosphere.

Level Measurement
Today, level measurement technology is the basis for management and process control in the chemical, petrochemical, environmental and other related industries.
Our comprehensive program enables us to help you solve your particular measurement and control problems and to detect the precise level of any medium, under a wide range of conditions.

Limit Detection
Limit value switches signal whether the medium being monitored has reached, risen above, or fallen below, a set level (VDI/VDE Directive 3519) based on its installation height.

Continuous Measurement
Level measurement sensors detect the current fill level. This is done by determining the distance from the surface of the medium to the preset reference level. Continuous level measurement allows usage evaluation, loss control, and above all, precise process control (VDI/VDE Directive 3519).

Interface Electronics
In order to prepare a standardized measurement signal for various types of level sensors, the proper interface electronics are required.
In general, a distinction is made between limit value and continuous level control.

Depending on the specific application, our interface electronics are approved for use in Ex areas as well as for overspill protection according to WHG. View a complete product selection for interface electronics under signal conditioners.

Signal Conditioners
Signal conditioners protect signal transfer between field devices in safe areas and control systems by galvanic isolation of the loop.

Particularly in case of long transmission paths, signal conditioners avoid compensating currents which may occur from ground loops. Signal conditioners also offer effective protection against electromagnetic disturbance or dangerous over voltages on the signal loops.

Depending on the type, signal conditioners offer additional features like limit switching, transformation from field in standard signals, as well as splitting of signals, which means doubling the input signal.
