Product Description

Redundant 2 channel Fiber optic communications module for CompactLogix 1769 control system platforms.

Product Overview

Phoenix Digital, redundant, fiber optic communications modules provide multi-fault tolerant networking backbone for Rockwell Automation CompactLogix EtherNet/IP, and PRP networks.

The Phoenix Digital communications modules link your I/O networks together via a redundant fiber backbone for long distances, EMI protection, fault tolerance.  All Phoenix Digital modules are built for, plug and play deployment, security, and easy maintenance.

With the dual ring deployment, there is 0sec convergence time upon loss of a fiber segment or module. 

All Phoenix Digital modules support Lock Out/Tag Out and support multiple device failures or disconnection without compromising the overall network backbone.

Phoenix Digital modules require no software updates, no security patches, no driver updates, no memory flash configurations, ever.

Upon power outages, the Phoenix Digital modules will reboot in less than 10 seconds regardless of module count on the network or Ethernet I/O devices connected.

Phoenix Digital modules support both multi-mode and single-mode fiber optic cables.

Fiber optic architecture options include ring, linear I/O, peer-to-peer and can provide communication distances over 6 miles (10 kilometers) with multi-mode and over 60 miles (96 kilometers) with single-mode fiber cable.

Capabilities include:

  • No software programming or system configuration
  • Multi-faut tolerant, redundant, I/O communications
  • Supports PRP – Parallel Redundancy Protocol in a ring topology
  • 30 sec MTTR - mean time to repair
  • No software updates, no security patches, no driver updates, no memory flash configurations, ever
  • 10 sec power loss recovery to a stable, operational state (no boot up time)
  • Supports both multi-mode and single-mode fiber optic cable installations
  • 0 sec network convergence time on channel failure
