LB remote I/O stations are mounted in Zone 2, Class I/Div. 2 hazardous areas. They form a modular signal conditioning system to interface signals from the field with a control system in the safe area. LB Remote I/O connects your conventional sensors and actuators to your DCS using a single standardized fieldbus connection (PROFIBUS, Modbus and others).
There is a wide spectrum of single and multi-channel I/O modules available offering intrinsically safe and safe area field connections. This ensures that engineering is easy and adaptable to the needs of your plant concept.
