Measuring just 35mm high, the D-UFB-PB surge protector provides protection for PROFIBUS systems, even in the small spaces. It’s designed for PROFIBUS-DP applications with data rates up to 12 mbps, and surge protection is integrated into the fieldbus connector, saving space. The PROFIBUS cable connects directly to the surge protector, eliminating the need for an additional protective device to be installed to the PROFIBUS connector. The nine-position D-SUB plug combines a surge protection circuit with an easy-to-install screw clamp terminal block, which is color-coded for termination of PROFIBUS cables. The termination resistor is activated with a slide switch at the connector, saving installation and start-up time.
