Manufacturers and industrial companies can use equipment used in the hazardous area via Ethernet / IP in the Connected Enterprise with the help of the new Allen-Bradley Ex 1719 Series I / O Platform from Rockwell Automation. This enables data access to field devices and easier control of process flows.
The Ex I / O of the 1719 series are part of the process control system (PLS) "Plantpax". The unified platform allows the monitoring of operations and communicates with the PLS or other automation systems. This ensures a seamless flow of information across the entire plant and business layer.
The 1719-Ex I / O platform is ideal for companies that have embarked on intelligent manufacturing and want to take advantage of the information available in-house in a connected enterprise, says the manufacturer. The platform's Ethernet / IP interface and Hart 7 protocol ensure easy integration of real-time and sensor data into a Plantpax system.
The I / O platform is integrated into the Software Studio 5000 design environment, which enhances ease of use and saves configuration time. The distributed I / O platform is certified for installation in Class I, Division 2 (North America), and Zone 2 (Global) hazardous locations. The intrinsically safe I / Os can be connected to field devices in Class I hazardous area, Division 1 (North America) and Zone 1 (Global).
