Fiber Optic Switches for Emerson Ovation & DeltaV DCS

emersonPhoenix Digital's fiber optic switches provide multi-fault tolerant, redundant Ethernet communication for the Emerson DeltaV and Ovation DCS for I/O and peer-to-peer edge field devices. These plug-and-play modules are available as standalone, DIN-rail mounted units.  

Our fiber optic network supports all Emerson high availability, PRP (parallel redundancy protocol) systems without configuration or modification. It works with all Emerson DeltaV and Ovation, ModBusTCP redundant processor/instrument/relay configurations.

Your mission critical DCS and Discrete I/O and peer-to-peer applications require superior uptime, simple deployment and easy maintenance. The PDC Emerson switch meets those needs, providing a multi-fault tolerant network that is easy to install, quick to repair and completely secure.  Our network sets up in minutes with 1 dip switch and has no software programming or system configuration.  Fiber optic switches are auto recognized as they join or leave the system network. 

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

Utilizing our packet encapsulation technology and dual ring deployment, PDC communication modules:

  • Have 0-sec network convergence time on channel failure
  • Support nanosecond PTP network synchronization 
  • Recover to a stable, operational state in less than 10 seconds after power loss, regardless of unit count on the network or I/O devices connected.
  • Support both multimode and single-mode fiber optic cable installations

Phoenix Digital media converter modules can be configured in any popular I/O and peer-to-peer network topology, including ring, bus, star, tree and point-to-point. They provide communication distances of beyond 6 miles (10 kilometers) between modules using multimode fiber optic cable, and over 60 miles (96 kilometers) with single-mode fiber cable.

With a 30-sec MTTR (mean time to repair), PDC fiber optic Ethernet networks support: 

  • IEC 61850 Power Automation Protocol
  • ModBusTCP I/O and peer-to-peer communications
  • Redundant substation automation systems
  • Nanosecond PTP network synchronization

Phoenix Digital has the fiber optic Ethernet expertise and experience to meet the most challenging demands of your Emerson system. Contact us today to learn more.
