Fiber Optic Media Converter for Schneider, Telemecanique & Foxboro Controllers

schneider electricPhoenix Digital's plug-and-play Ethernet fiber optic switches provide multi-fault tolerant, redundant Ethernet communication for Schneider’s EcoStruxure control and power platforms, including:

  • Modicon
  • Foxboro
  • Triconex
  • MiCOM

Our fiber optic media converter for these I/O and peer-to-peer networks is available as a standalone, DIN-rail mounted unit.  It also:

  • supports all Schneider high availability, PRP (parallel redundancy protocol) systems
  • works with Modicon, Foxboro, Triconex, and MiCOM Redundant Processor/Substation Relay configurations

For mission critical DCS,  Discrete I/O and peer-to-peer applications that require superior uptime and simple deployment and maintenance, PDC fiber optic media converters create 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.  PDC fiber optic switches are auto recognized as they are added to or dropped from 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, our fiber optic media converter supports nanosecond PTP Network I/O synchronization and recovers 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.

Our fiber optic media converter can be configured in any popular I/O and peer-to-peer network topology (ring, bus, star, tree, point-to-point, etc.). Communication distances beyond 6 miles (10 kilometers) between modules using multimode fiber optic cable, and over 60 miles (96 kilometers) with single-mode fiber cable are achievable.

Our communication modules provide 30-sec MTTR (mean time to repair) and support:

  • MiCOM relays/IEDS
  • IEC 61850 Power Automation Protocol
  • Modbus TCP
