Solution: Just 3 CCS Cable Concentrator Systems can do the same job for up to 48 signals. The CCS isolates each field signal, concentrates it onto a twisted wire pair with up to 127 other signals, and transmits it back to the DCS using MODBUS RTU protocol. The CCS network also frees up wires in your multi-core cables.
