Title (EN) INTERFACE MODULE WITH POWER OVER ETHERNET FUNCTION
(FR) MODULE D'INTERFACE PRESENTANT UNE FONCTION ALIMENTATION ELECTRIQUE PAR CABLE ETHERNET
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An interface module (302) for use in a process monitoring and control system has an Ethernet port, a controller (320), and at least one segment I/O module (328). The Ethernet port is adapted to send and receive signals in an Ethernet protocol over a cable (314) comprising a plurality of wires and to receive a voltage potential from at least one pair of the plurality of wires. The controller (320) is coupled to the Ethernet port and powered from the received voltage potential. The at least one segment I/O module (328) is coupled to the controller (320) and is adapted to couple to an associated field device segment (308) with at least one attached field device. The at least one segment I/O module (308) is adapted to interact with the at least one attached field device on the associated field device segment.
(FR)L'invention concerne un module d'interface (302) utilisable dans un système de surveillance et de contrôle de processus, qui comprend un port Ethernet, un contrôleur (320), et au moins un module d'E-S sectoriel (328). Le port Ethernet est adapté pour envoyer et recevoir des signaux dans un protocole Ethernet par un câble (314) comprenant une pluralité de fils, et pour recevoir un potentiel de tension d'au moins une paire de la pluralité de fils. Le contrôleur (320) est couplé au port Ethernet et alimenté par le potentiel de tension reçu. Le(s) module(s) d'E-S sectoriel(s) (328) est (sont) couplé(s) au contrôleur (320) et adapté(s) pour se raccorder à un segment de dispositif de champ associé (308) au moyen d'au moins un dispositif de champ connexe. Le(s) module(s) d'E-S sectoriel(s) (328) est (sont) adapté(s) pour interagir avec le(s) dispositif(s) de champ connexe(s) présent(s) sur le segment de dispositif de champ associé.
