Intrinsically Safe Fieldbus for Hydrocarbon Processing Plants

Hydrocarbon Processing, October 2007 

For about 30 years, it has been a given within the oil and gas industry that intrinsic safety (IS) is the natural technique for explosion-proof protection of electronic instruments. Fieldbus users now want complex processing and digital communications to and from many devices in intrinsically safe applications. The key is delivering enough power to a large number of field devices.
