Fiber Optic Converter for Honeywell Experion & ControlEdge

honeywellPhoenix Digital's plug-and-play fiber optic converter provides multi-fault tolerant, redundant Ethernet communication for Honeywell’s ControlEdge and Experion DCS for I/O and peer-to-peer edge field devices.

Available as standalone, DIN-Rail mounted units, PDC communication modules work with ControlEdge HS900 and Experion, redundant processor/instrument/relay configurations. Our fiber optic network switch also supports all Honeywell high availability, PRP (parallel redundancy protocol) systems without configuration or modification.

The PDC fiber media converter is easily installed and quickly repaired. We engineered our communication modules for mission critical DCS and Discrete I/O and peer-to-peer applications that require superior uptime and total security.  Our network sets up in minutes with 1 dip switch and has no software programming or system configuration.  The system will auto recognize each fiber optic network switch as it is added to or removed from the system network. 

The PDC system does not require any software updates, security patches, driver updates or memory flash configurations, ever.

The network, which utilizes our packet encapsulation technology and dual ring deployment, has 0-sec network convergence time on channel failure and supports nanosecond PTP Network I/O synchronization.  Upon power loss, the PDC system will recover to a stable, operational state in less than 10 seconds regardless of unit count on the network or I/O devices connected.

Configurations are possible in any popular I/O and peer-to-peer network topology (ring, bus, star, tree, point-to-point, etc.). Phoenix Digital fiber optic converter modules provide outstanding communication distances:

  • Beyond 6 miles (10 kilometers) between modules using multimode fiber optic cable
  • Over 60 miles (96 kilometers) with single-mode fiber cable

Other capabilities of our fiber optic network switch include:

Our expert knowledge of Honeywell Experion and ControlEdge DCS ensures you’ll get a multi-fault tolerant redundant system that meets your most challenging communication needs. Contact us today for the assistance you need.
