Fiber Converter for Siemens Profinet & Legacy TIWAY Control Systems

siemensPhoenix Digital's plug-and-play fiber optic network switch provides multi-fault tolerant, redundant ProfiNet communication for Siemens SIMATIC control and HMI platforms.

Our fiber converter modules for ProfiNet I/O and peer-to-peer networks are available as standalone, DIN-rail mounted units.  They also:

  • Support all Siemens high availability, Redundant Platforms
  • Support Siemens ProfiNet solutions in a ring topology
  • Provide media redundancy for ProfiNet applications

We also support legacy TIWAY-based control systems with the PDC OCM module.

For mission critical DCS and Discrete I/O and peer-to-peer applications that require superior uptime and simple deployment and maintenance, every PDC fiber converter creates 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. Each fiber optic network switch is auto recognized as it is 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.

Our communication modules:

PDC fiber converter modules 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 are achievable, as are distances over 60 miles (96 kilometers) with single-mode fiber cable.

Our fiber optic network switch provides 30-sec MTTR (mean time to repair) and supports:

  • ProfiNet
  • IEC 61850 Power Automation Protocol
  • Ethernet IP
  • Serial ModBus
  • Ethernet
  • Modbus TCP
  • TIWAY
