MooreHawke, a division of Moore International’s (www.miinet.com), proudly announced that its TRUNKSAFE TS Series power conditioner has been certified by the Fieldbus Foundation and is now included in the foundation’s list of registered product.
“Because of the revolutionary nature of TRUNKSAFE, obtaining approval and registration is a significant step,” said Leonard Moore, President of Moore Industries.
“TRUNKSAFE is the only fault-tolerant fieldbus system of its type in the world, and now end users and systems integrators can have complete confidence that it is suitable for use on both critical and non-critical process segments.”
TRUNKSAFE provides a real measure of fault-tolerance without duplicating/triplicating each component and installing special software at the DCS. The TRUNKSAFE Fault-Tolerant segment’s design only requires two TRUNKSAFE power conditioners, two H1 cards, one TRUNKSAFE device coupler and two cables. Users do not need to install special software at the DCS nor to duplicate the field instrument. If one of the field cables fails, the system still continues to operate via the alternative cable while the system notifies the DCS.
The TRUNKSAFE device coupler has been especially hardened to eliminate common-mode failures that might affect the whole segment.
Aside from saving money, TRUNKSAFE also prevents a hardware fault from affecting the entire segment.
TRUNKSAFE can be used on both Profibus and FOUNDATION fieldbus segments and on both non-critical and critical processes. It can be also used together with MooreHawke’s standard fieldbus power conditioner system.
