Schedule
 
EQUIPMENT:
Equipment and systems covered by this certificate are as follows:
 

Subject and Type
 
Fieldbus Barrier type R4D0-FB-IA*
The Fieldbus Barrier is available in the following variants:
R4D0-FB-IA8         8-channel
R4D0-FB-IA10    10-channel
R4D0-FB-IA12    12-channel
Behind the number of channels, optionally further numbers or letters may be included in the type denomination to indicate different variations without influence on explosion protection.
 
 
Description
 
The 8-channel (R4D0-FB-IA8), 10-channel (R4D0-FB-IA10) and 12-channel (R4D0-FB-IA12) Fieldbus Barriers are galvanically isolated fieldbus couplers for the supply of intrinsically safe field devices and the bidirectional transmission of the fieldbus signals.
 
The up to 12 outputs are intrinsically safe, with level of protection “Ex ia IIC” resp. “Ex ia IIIC”, and can be led in areas requiring category 1G resp. 1D. The intrinsically safe outputs are designed to be used in accordance with the Entity- and FISCO concept.
 
On the trunk side the Fieldbus Barrier is supplied by a non-intrinsically safe circuit. The trunk connection for the supply is doubled to be able to loop through the supply voltage to the next unit. Maximum 3 Fieldbus Barriers may be connected to the trunk.
 
The non-intrinsically safe circuits are protected by type of protection increased safety “Ex e” and encapsulation “Ex mb” and fulfill the requirements of category 2G.
 
The Fieldbus Barrier is intended to be mounted into an enclosure type of protection increased safety resp. into a suitable, separately certified enclosure.

 
SPECIFIC CONDITIONS OF USE: YES as shown below:
 
The Fieldbus Barrier has to be mounted into a suitable, separately certified enclosure. The temperature inside the enclosure shall not exceed the permissible ambient temperature of the Fieldbus Barrier.
 
The external enclosure has to carry the warning “WARNING – NON-INTRINSICALLY SAFE CIRCUITS PROTECTED BY INTERNAL IP30 COVER“
