Schedule
 
EQUIPMENT:
Equipment and systems covered by this certificate are as follows:
 
The FBT-6 Fieldbus Monitor is used to test the condition of the fieldbus physical layer (cables, power conditioner, terminator, and wiring blocks). It is a passive device, listening to the communications on a fieldbus and making measurements and displaying them.  The FBT-6 has two ports: a fieldbus port (3 colored banana jacks) and a USB port. The fieldbus port is connected to the fieldbus network via a 1m long cable to take measurements.  The FBT-6 may be connected to any point on the fieldbus network where the FBT-6 fieldbus cable probes can be connected. Data collected is saved in the FBT-6.  The FBT-6 is disconnected from the fieldbus and can then be connected to a PC USB port by connecting the supplied 2m USB cable between the FBT-6 USB port and the PC USB port. A model variation the FBT-6-PA is for use with Profibus PA Networks all of the hardware is identical, the only difference is internal firmware.
 
CONDITIONS OF CERTIFICATION: YES as shown below:
 
1The Fieldbus and the USB connection of the FBT -6 shall not be connected to electrical circuits at the same time.
2All connections shall be supplied from a galvanically isolated intrinsically safe supply.
