What characterizes milestones in technical development? They make things possible that were hardly imaginable before. Complex obstacles are overcome while freedom and flexibility remarkably increase. All these characteristics apply to the Universal Barrier by Pepperl+Fuchs whose introduction is surely more than just a small step for process automation.
This ground-breaking device means the replacement of several traditional modules by just a single multi-functional I/O module. As an addition to Pepperl+Fuchs’ proven H-System, it is an innovation which especially affects distributed control system (DCS) manufacturers like Honeywell. In order to unleash its full functionality, the Universal Barrier HiC2441 only needs an input card with the appropriate flexibility, like it is for instance being provided by Honeywell’s Experion Universal Process I/O.
By using the Universal Barrier, you no longer have to worry about different signal requirements and possible limitations. Aside of these advantages in terms of standardization, the Universal Barrier HiC2441 also offers maximum flexibility.
Planning, engineering, parameterization, and maintenance are handled much easier with the Universal Barrier, while installation and commissioning are sped up as well. As you set up your system, you only have to attach required functionalities to the respective channels from your control side. Thus, parameterization in the field is a thing of the past.
True innovations are rarely the results of flashes of genius. In most cases, they are based upon rock solid know-how, long-time experience, and teamwork. This applies for the Universal Barrier as well. It was developed in line with the Universal I/O technology by Honeywell, and is the result of a partnership between Honeywell and Pepperl+Fuchs. This cooperation has led to innovative product solutions for process automation for the past 20 years.
