SFP modules: Flexible use of fiberglass technology

Three SFP modules  

SFP modules for flexible fiberglass transmission

SFP (small form-factor pluggable) modules enable you to flexibly use the SFP ports of your Ethernet switches. Whether you require single-mode or multimode transmission, Fast Ethernet or Gigabit, Phoenix Contact provides the right SFP modules for your application:

  • Copper and FO transmission (single mode and multimode)
  • Transmission distances of up to 80 km
  • Single-fiber transmission with WDM technology
  • 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps
  • Can be used in all Phoenix Contact switches with SFP slots

Ethernet patch panels: Secure connection made fast

Three Ethernet patch panels  

The patch panels enable safe connection between the control cabinet and field

Ethernet patch panels enable quick and easy connection between your field and control cabinet cabling. In a covered wiring space, IDC, Push-in or screw connection simplifies installation of the field cable. The cable shielding is connected quickly and easily without tools – while simultaneously ensuring strain relief. This saves a great deal of time during installation.

As an option, these interface modules are also available with surge protection and shield current monitoring.

PoE injectors: Reliable and simple supply

PoE injectors  

The PoE injectors reliably supply your network with data and power

The Power over Ethernet (PoE) injectors can be used to supply remote Ethernet devices, such as cameras, with data and power via a shared cable. The compact stand-alone solution is available in various performance classes up to 60 watts.

In addition to the RJ45 socket, the PoE injectors feature alternative connection technologies for the field cable and integrated surge protection. This protects the connected end devices and therefore increases system availability.

Network isolators for the electrical isolation of the network

Two Ethernet isolators  

The network isolators protect your end devices

In industrial environments, potential differences pose a constant problem to interference-free data transmission. The FL ISOLATOR is used for electrical isolation in copper-based Ethernet networks.

You can protect your Ethernet devices and interfaces thanks to the high-quality isolation up to 4 kV. This significantly increases immunity.

The FL ISOLATOR is also available with M12 connection technology and housing for wall mounting as an option.

PRP redundancy modules for high network availability

Two PRP redundancy modules  

Redundancy modules for parallel network redundancy

High failsafe performance is particularly important in many networks. PRP redundancy modules enable parallel network redundancy with no switch-over time in the event of an error. The modules therefore ensure the high availability of your network.

Your advantages at a glance:

  • Easy setup of high-availability network infrastructure without configuration
  • No switch-over times for uninterrupted operation in the event of an error
  • No loss of packets in the event of network failure or failure of individual network components
  • Can be used under the harshest electromagnetic, electrostatic, and climatic ambient conditions in accordance with IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613
  • Integration of non-PRP-capable devices in parallel networks for maximum availability

Copper installation: From network cables to RJ45 connectors and circular connectors

Copper cables with RJ45 and M12 connectors  

The right copper cables for your installation

Copper-based data cables from Phoenix Contact feature simple assembly without special tools and fast data transmission of up to 10 Gbps. From RJ45, USB, and D-SUB to M12, Phoenix Contact always has the right connector for your application. Special shielding concepts with 360° EMC shielding ensure a high level of resistance to EMI and ESD.

FO installation: From fiberglass cables to FO connectors

FO cables  

Comprehensive range of cables and connectors

Fiber optic technology enables a high transmission speed, low attenuation, and is resistant to electromagnetic interference. FO technology is particularly suitable for large distances. Phoenix Contact provides a comprehensive range of products for all FO installation technology, from SC-RJ, LC, SC, F-SMA to ST, plus POF, PCF, GOF fiber types:

  • FO cables in a range of versions
  • FO connectors for self-assembly
  • Assembly case with professional tools
  • FO measuring devices

The necessary accessories, such as couplings and panel feed-throughs, complete the range.
