Peer-to-Peer Multiplexer

Many facilities have several signals that need to get back to a centralized control room or need to be shared with another part of the plant.  Ideally, there is always enough extra shielded twisted pair that can be used when signals or transmitters need to be added.  Unfortunately, there never seems to be enough spare wire for these situations.

When such a requirement exists consider the NCS Net Concentrator System as it allows you to utilize just one pair, or any other medium that is available, to multiplex and digitally transmit analog and discrete signals to any other part of the plant.  The NCS was designed for these exact peer-to-peer applications and has a programming interface that is extremely easy to setup with no complex programming involved.  Multiple NCS stations can be set up over the network to create a very flexible peer-to-peer communication network. The NCS is designed for Class I Div 2/Zone 2 environments and includes input and output modules thathandle current, voltage, temperature sensors, discretes and relays.

Key Attributes:

  • Wide range of I/O types and number of points
  • Suitable for installation in Class I Div 2/Zone 2 areas and -40 to 85C ambient operating
  • Peer-to-peer addressing allows network flexibility
