Foxboro 200 Series Compact I/O fieldbus modules that support more I/O modules in less space than before, reducing footprint up to 50 percent and offering significant potential for cost savings.
The new FBMs are especially valuable for new implementations in confined spaces, such as offshore platforms, and for adding capacity to existing installations without incurring the trouble and cost of facility expansion. Higher-density baseplates and optional cabinets contribute further to footprint reduction, which also drives significant savings in weight, energy consumption and inventory over traditional I/O offerings.
The Foxboro Compact I/O modules are compatible with multiple generations of Foxboro controllers, software and infrastructure, and they provide the ability to mix and match I/O types on the same controller.
Proven, highly reliable Foxboro Compact 200 Series fieldbus modules (FBMs) feature an innovative design for significant footprint, weight and volume savings in your system installation. A narrow form factor enables more inputs/outputs (I/O) per baseplate, and more I/O per cabinet for increased I/O density overall. Foxboro Compact FBMs offer cost-efficient solution where space is at a premium.
