Pepperl+Fuchs : AS-Interface G11 Module

Oct. 1, 2011
G11-style AS-Interface analog modules (VBA-2E-G11-I/U/PT100-F) are IP68/69k-rated and field-mountable.

The G11housing features industry-standard M12-style connectors to enable quick installation and removal, even under power. The unit’s water-tight housing accepts two freely selectable analog inputs for 4-20mA, 0-10V or PT100 type signals. The overall analog conversion speed of these modules is just 8 ms., which is reportedly 30% faster than competitive modules. Additional features include: automatic scaling to 4000-20000 for 4-20mA, 0-10000 for 0-10V, and -2000 to 8500 for -200C°-+850°C; user-selectable 0-20mA or 4-20mA input option; unique G11 O-ring sealing technique guaranteed by design to be resistant to high-pressure washdown and cleaning solutions. Design is said to provide “exceptional protection of internal electronics without encapsulation,” which makes module well-suited applications subject to frequent temperature swings, according to the company.
