Isolating barriers provide intrinsic safety and galvanic separation between the control system and various field devices. Their isolating barrier range is easy to use and offers a wide range of functions and a long service life. The pac-Bus connection system saves time and wiring cost.
When automated systems are installed in potentially explosive atmospheres (ex. oil and gas production), extra precautions must be taken to ensure the electrical circuits do not become ignition sources. Intrinsic safety protection requires consideration of the entire electrical circuit, consisting of a current/voltage source, end devices, and connecting cables. To maintain the integrity of an intrinsically safe system with field devices such as sensors, transmitters, or valves, intrinsically safe isolators or barriers are also required. These isolators/barriers only allow a safe amount of energy to reside in the electrical circuit so that no sources of ignition are created.
