TWINSBURG, OH – Pepperl+Fuchs has been awarded a contract to be the Fieldbus interface and PC operator terminal supplier, partnering with Emerson Process Management, for the project awarded by GE Healthcare's Lindesnes plant in Norway. Emerson will implement the Pepperl+Fuchs fieldbus installation system FieldConnex®, a range of FOUNDATION™ fieldbus interface solutions between the Emerson DeltaV™ digital automation system and FOUNDATION™ fieldbus field devices being installed.
Pepperl+Fuchs FieldConnex® products being used include the Power Hub, a unique and highly reliable fully redundant passive power supply system capable of providing physical layer diagnostic capabilities. For connecting fieldbus signals within the plant, segment protectors and Fieldbarriers are utilized for distribution and protection of the FOUNDATION™ fieldbus digital plant network. Pepperl+Fuchs FieldConnex® will interface the field measurement instrumentation to Emerson's DeltaV™ digital automation system which includes the unique AMS™ Suite predictive maintenance software.
Also being installed on the project are Pepperl+Fuchs EXTEC IPC-Ex PC operator terminals mounted within hazardous area locations throughout the plant. The HMI provides an operator with monitoring and control functionality remotely from the DeltaV terminal located in the control room, while maintaining the safety and integrity required for plant automation.
