This chapter presents an overview of the DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem equipment.
The DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem provides a reliable, high speed communications interface
between the host control processor (for example the I/A Series control station) and field I/O sensors and actuators. It incorporates innovative equipment packaging, and the use of fiber optic
and/or coaxial cabling between modules to allow local or remote distribution of process I/O
points.
The subsystem consists of the following major functional elements. (Figure 1-1 shows how these
elements are interconnected.)

Fieldbus Modules (FBMs) FBMs serve as an interface between the field devices and
the I/A Series control station (via the module Fieldbus and the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus). They perform necessary data conversion, providing full support for analog
measurement, discrete sensing, and analog or discrete control and digital
communication.
Fieldbus communications modules (FCMs) FCM10E and FCM10Ef modules provide interfacing between the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus and the module Fieldbus.
FCM2F2/4/10 modules provide for fiber optic extension (baseplate-to-baseplate) of
the module Fieldbus. The FCMs are used in pairs for redundancy.
Baseplate The DIN rail mounted Fieldbus Module baseplate provides a base for
mounting of the FBMs and FCMs. Up to four baseplates can be interconnected (via
the module Fieldbus) to provide mounting for up to 30 FBMs per FCM or FCM
pair.

Module Fieldbus A 2 Mbps HDLC optionally redundant serial bus used to interconnect all baseplate-mounted modules (FCMs and FBMs). The module Fieldbus
cabling between baseplates can be shielded twisted-pair, fiber optic, or a combination
of both.
Ethernet trunk Fieldbus A 10 Mbps optionally redundant data communications bus
which interconnects baseplate groupings of FCMs and FBMs with the I/A Series control station. It employs asychronous protocol and conforms to the general
requirements of Ethernet communications.
Multiport fiber optic converter (hub) Converts the Ethernet 10Base2 to fiber optic
media, and provides six ports for fiber optic media distribution to up to six baseplate
groupings.
Media converters (BNC to fiber-ST) Provide 10Base2-to-fiber (and vice-versa) conversion for optional fiber optic extension of the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus.
Termination assemblies (TAs) TAs are field signal connection modules which provide optional signal conditioning and circuit protection required by the associated
FBM. Two types of TAs are offered: pass-through TAs, and TAs with signal conditioning (in both directions, reduction/increase). The TAs connect to the connectors
on the baseplate by means of dedicated cables.

** Combinations of shielded twisted-pair and fiber optic


cabling (within the baseplate grouping) are also possible.

*** Refer to Figures 1-4 through 1-6 for baseplate cabling


interconnections.

Figure 1-1. DIN Rail Mounted FBM Subsystem Elements

As illustrated in Figure 1-1, two basic network configurations are possible: 1) direct connection of
the Ethernet trunk fieldbus to the FCM(s) and 2) connection to the FCMs via a muti-port fiber
optic converter (hub). Both of these configurations offer optional extension of the Ethernet trunk
fieldbus through the use of media converters, allowing the FBMs to be located remotely from the
I/A Series control station. For maximum allowable cable lengths and equipment quantities, refer
to Product Sizing Constraints on page 26.

1. Overview

B0400FA Rev D

Also, as indicated in Figure 1-1, module Fieldbus distribution (baseplate-to-baseplate) can be


implemented using shielded twisted-pair cabling, fiber optic cabling, or a combination of both.
Baseplate-to-baseplate fiber optic cabling is implemented using FCM2F modules, a pair (for
redundancy) in each of the connected baseplates. Twisted-pair cabling is implemented by simply
making cable connections from one baseplate to the next. The following subsections provide
more detailed information on the baseplate cabling configurations and the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus cabling configurations.

Baseplate Implementation
The DIN rail mounted Fieldbus Module baseplate (Figure 1-2) provides for the mounting of the
DIN rail mounted Fieldbus Modules (FBMs) and Fieldbus communications modules (FCMs). Its
eight mounting positions can accommodate up to eight FBMs, or a combination of FBMs and
FCMs. The baseplate also provides the necessary connectors for redundant power, redundant
module Fieldbus, and I/O signal cable connections.

As shown in Figure 1-2, the baseplate is available in two basic configurations, one for horizontal
DIN rail mounting and the other for vertical DIN rail mounting.
In addition, a mounting bracket kit is available for mounting of the horizontal baseplate in a standard, 483 mm (19-inch) rack. The kit (Foxboro part number P0930AY) provides for a 25.4 mm
(1 in) mounting depth in the rack.
The FBMs and FCMs plug onto the baseplate by means of their two connectors, and each is fastened in place by two hex screws. In addition to the FBMs and FCMs, an FCM identification
assembly (Figure 1-3) is mounted on the signal connectors adjacent to the FCM(s) in the first
baseplate of the group of up to four. The FCM identification assembly provides for mounting of
letterbug set(s), which provide identification, to the system software, of all mounted FBMs.

Up to four baseplates are interconnected by means of the module Fieldbus. Also, multiple groups
of baseplates can be connected to the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus, either directly (via Ethernet connectors) or through one or more multiport fiber optic converters (see Figure 1-1).
Figure 1-4 through Figure 1-6 show the three basic baseplate interconnection configurations.
Figure 1-4 shows baseplate interconnection using only shielded twisted-pair cable. This configuration is used when the four (maximum) baseplates are mounted in the same general location (for
example, in multiple enclosures in the same area). Shielded twisted-pair cables are available in
lengths of 0.25 m (10 in), 1 m (3.3 ft), 3 m (9.9 ft), 5 m (16.5 ft), 10 m (33 ft), 20 m (66 ft),
30 m (99 ft) and 60 m (198 ft). (For overall cabling distances, refer to Product Sizing Constraints on page 26.)

(Figure 1-6). These configurations allow one or more of the baseplates to be mounted remote
from the others. The FCM2F modules provide for three different fiber optic cabling distances
between baseplates: 2 km (1.24 mi), 4 km (2.48 mi), or 10 km (6.2 mi). (For overall cabling distances, refer to Product Sizing Constraints on page 26.)

1. Overview

Ethernet Trunk Fieldbus Implementation


The Ethernet trunk Fieldbus is implemented in the following basic configurations:
Direct network configuration (Figure 1-7). This configuration is used where groupings of FBMs are concentrated in a more localized area, or where groupings of FBMs
are located remote from the control station.

Active star network configuration (Figure 1-8). This configuration uses a multiport
fiber optic converter (hub), which allows distribution of the FBMs over a much wider
area.
For maximum cabling lengths and equipment quantities used in these configurations, refer to
Product Sizing Constraints on page 26. For cable connection procedures, refer to Ethernet
Trunk Fieldbus Cable Connections on page 77.

Fieldbus Communications Modules


The three types of FCMs (FCM10E, FCM10Ef, and FCM2F) are described in the following subsections.

FCM10E Fieldbus Communications Module


The FCM10E Fieldbus Communications Module (Foxboro part number P0914YM) allows DIN
rail mounted Fieldbus Modules (FBMs) to communicate with the I/A Series control station via
the high speed, optionally redundant 10 Mbps Ethernet trunk Fieldbus. The FCM10E converts
10 Mbps Ethernet signals used by the I/A Series control station to 2 Mbps HDLC signals used by
DIN rail mounted Fieldbus Modules (FBMs), and vice versa.

B0400FA Rev D

1. Overview

Figure 1-9. FCM10E Fieldbus Communications Module

The FCM10E also provides galvanic isolation between the 10 Mbps Ethernet trunk Fieldbus and
the 2 Mbps module Fieldbus. The FCM10E modules are used in pairs for redundancy. An
FCM10E (or pair of FCM10E modules) can support up to 30 FBMs.

FCM10Ef Fieldbus Communications Module


The FCM10Ef Fieldbus Communications Modules (Foxboro part number P0916CP) convert
2 Mbps HDLC signals used by DIN rail mounted Fieldbus Modules (FBMs) to 10 Mbps fiber
optic Ethernet signals in an Ethernet/fiber optic network. This allows the FBMs to communicate
with the I/A Series control station over extended distances in a fiber optic network configuration.
The FCM10Ef offers a maximum cabling distance (drop from the hub) of up to 2 km (1.24 mi).

Figure 1-10. FCM10Ef Fieldbus Communications Module

Using fiber optic cabling, the FCM10Ef modules link directly to the multiport fiber optic converter (hub), which connects to the I/A Series control station via the high speed, optionally
redundant 10 Mbps Ethernet trunk Fieldbus.
8

1. Overview

B0400FA Rev D

Up to six groups of baseplate-mounted FCM10Ef modules and associated FBMs can be linked to
the optionally redundant hub, for a maximum of 120 FBMs. To support redundancy, a pair of
FCM10Ef modules must be used for each FBM grouping. In non-redundant configurations, only
a single FCM10Ef is required for each grouping.

FCM2F2/FCM2F4/FCM2F10 Fieldbus Communications Module


The FCM2F Fieldbus Communications modules (Foxboro part numbers P0914YZ/
P0917JA/P0916TQ) provide baseplate-to-baseplate fiber optic extension of the module Fieldbus
(see Figure 1-6). This allows DIN rail mounted Fieldbus Modules (FBMs) to be locally, or
remotely distributed in multiple enclosures for strategic placement of input/output points.
The three versions of the FCM2Fs FCM2F2, FCM2F4, and FCM2F10 offer three different
maximum baseplate-to-baseplate fiber optic cabling distances: up to 2 km (1.24 mi), up to 4 km
(2.48 mi), and up to 10 km (6.2 mi), respectively. FCM2F2 and FCM2F4 are used with multimode graded-index fiber cable, and FCM2F10 is used with single-mode fiber cable.
The FCM2Fs are mounted on the baseplates in pairs for redundancy, one each for the A and
B cables of the Fieldbus. Non-redundant configurations require only a single FCM2F.

Figure 1-11. FCM2F Fieldbus Communications Module

Fieldbus Modules
The DIN

rail mounted Fieldbus Modules (FBMs) are compact, high-performance distributed


process I/O modules. They perform the signal conversion required to interface the electrical input
signals to/from the field sensors to the optionally-fault-tolerant I/A Series control station. Communication between the FBMs the I/A Series control station is via Fieldbus Communication
Modules (FCMs), which interface the 2 Mbps module Fieldbus used by the FBMs with the 10
Mbps Ethernet trunk Fieldbus used by the I/A Series control station. The FBMs automatically
accept communication from either communication path (A or B) of the redundant Ethernet
trunk Fieldbus. Thus, if one path fails, communication is not interrupted.

B0400FA Rev D

1. Overview

A broad range of FBM types are available to provide support for various analog measurement, discrete sensing, and analog or discrete control requirements. All of the various types of FBMs are
compact and stucturally identical, designed with an extruded aluminum exterior. Light-emitting
diodes (LEDs) incorporated into the front of each module provide visual status indications of the
Fieldbus Module functions.

Figure 1-12. DIN Rail Mounted Fieldbus Module (Typical)

The following subsections describe the functions of the individual types of FBMs.

FBM201 Channel Isolated, 0 to 20 mA Input Interface Module


FBM201 (Foxboro part number P0914SQ) contains eight isolated 0 to 20 mA dc analog input
channels, each accepting a two-wire, analog sensor input such as a 4 to 20 mA transmitter or a
self-powered 20 mA source. Each input is galvanically isolated from the other channels and
ground.
In addition to performing the signal conversion required to interface the electrical input signals
from the field sensors to the optionally redundant module Fieldbus, the module executes the Analog Input application program, which provides Integration Time and Rate of Change Limits configurable options.

FBM202 Channel Isolated, Thermocouple/mV Input Interface


Module
FBM202 (Foxboro part number P0914ST) contains eight isolated thermocouple input channels,
and one isolated RTD reference junction compensation channel (for terminal temperature sensing). Each thermocouple/mV channel accepts standard thermocouples for various temperature
ranges, and each provides upscale thermocouple burnout detection and rate-of-change detection.
The inputs are galvanically isolated from the other channels and ground.
In addition to performing the signal conversion required to interface the electrical input signals
from the field sensors to the optionally redundant module Fieldbus, the module executes the Analog Input application program, which provides Integration Time and Rate of Change Limits configurable options.

1. Overview

B0400FA Rev D

FBM203 Channel Isolated, Platinum and Nickel RTD Input


Interface Module
FBM203 (Foxboro part number P0914SV) contains eight isolated resistance temperature detector (RTD) input channels. Each channel accepts a 2- or 3-wire RTD sensor input, within a 0 to
320 ohm resistance range. Each analog input is galvanically isolated from the other channels and
ground.
In addition to performing the signal conversion required to interface the electrical input signals
from the field sensors to the optionally redundant module Fieldbus, the module executes the Analog Input application program, which provides Integration Time and Rate of Change Limits configurable options.

FBM204 Channel Isolated, 0 to 20 mA I/O Interface Module


FBM204 (Foxboro part number P0914SY) contains four isolated 20 mA dc analog input channels and four 20 mA dc analog output channels. Each input channel accepts an analog sensor
input such as a 4 to 20 mA transmitter, or a self-powered 20 mA source. Each output channel
produces a 0 to 20 mA output to drive an external load, and output is galvanically isolated from
the other channels and ground.
In addition to performing the signal conversion required to interface the electrical input signals
from the field sensors to the optionally redundant module Fieldbus, the module executes Analog
I/O application program, which provides the following configurable options: Integration Time,
Fail Safe Configuration (Hold/Fallback), and Analog Output Fail Safe Fallback Data (on a per
channel basis).

FBM205 Channel Isolated, Redundant 0 to 20 mA I/O


Interface Module
FBM205 (Foxboro part number P0914XG) contains four isolated 0 to 20 mA dc analog input
channels and four isolated 20 mA dc analog output channels. The module is used as a redundant
pair (two FBM205s). Each input and output channel is galvanically isolated from the other channels and ground.
The two modules combine to provide redundancy at the FBM level. To achieve redundancy, a
Redundant Adapter module is placed on the two adjacent baseplate termination cable connectors
to provide a single termination cable connection (see Figure 1-13). A single termination cable
connects from the Redundant Adapter to the associated termination assembly (TA). Each module
independently attempts to hold the output(s) at its specified output value(s), and each independently reports its observed value of the inputs. A redundant analog input and output block in the
control software validates each input and output in conjunction with information to/from the
module.

In the I/A Series control station, a redundant analog output function block, AOUTR, is used for
each redundant pair of outputs. The AOUTR block handles output writes and initialization logic
for the redundant channels. On each execution cycle of the AOUTR block, identical output
writes are sent to both FBMs in the redundant pair, fully exercising the communication path to
the FBMs and the logic circuitry of each FBM. When a failure is detected in one of the FBMs, its
output is driven to 0 mA and the corresponding channel in the good module automatically continues supplying the proper current to the output current loop.
A redundant analog input function block, AINR, is used for each redundant pair of inputs. The
AINR block handles input reads and initialization logic for the redundant channels. On each execution cycle of the AINR block, identical read commands are sent to both FBMs in the redundant pair, fully exercising the communication path to the FBMs and the logic circuitry of each
FBM.
Each input channel accepts an analog sensor input, such as a 4 to 20 mA transmitter or a selfpowered 20 mA source. Each output channel drives an external load and produces a 0 to 20 mA
output. Transmitter power from each module is diode ORd together in the redundant adapter to
assure redundant power from either module. The microprocessor of each FBM in the pair executes the analog I/O application program, plus security routines that validate the health of the
FBM.
Input channel options include a configurable choice of analog input conversion time on a per
module basis. Input channel security is enhanced by redundantly powering the input current loop
from per-channel power supplies in each FBM of the pair.
Configurable options in the modules for output security include Fail Safe Action
(Hold/Fallback), Analog Output Fail-safe Fallback Data (on a per channel basis), Fieldbus Failsafe Enable, and Fieldbus Fail-safe Delay Time. The Analog Output Fail-safe Fallback Data
option must be set for 0 mA output. This removes one of the pair of redundant output channels
from service for detectable problems such as an FBM not properly receiving output writes, not
passing security tests on FBM microprocessor writes to output registers, failure of internal FBM

In the I/A Series control station, a redundant analog output function block, AOUTR, is used for
each redundant pair of outputs. The AOUTR block handles output writes and initialization logic
for the redundant channels. On each execution cycle of the AOUTR block, identical output
writes are sent to both FBMs in the pair, fully exercising communication path to the FBMs and
the logic circuitry of each FBM. When a failure is detected in one of the FBMs, its output is
driven to 0 mA and the corresponding channel in the good module automatically continues supplying the proper current to the output current loop.
Each output channel drives an external load and produces a 0 to 20 mA output. Transmitter
power from each module is diode ORd together in the Redundant Adapter to assure redundant
power from either module. The microprocessor of each module executes the Analog I/O application program, plus security routines that validate the health of the module.
Configurable options in the modules for output security include Fail Safe Action
(Hold/Fallback), Analog Output Fail-safe Fallback Data (on a per channel basis), Fieldbus Failsafe Enable, and Fieldbus Fail-safe Delay Time. The Analog Output Fail-safe Fallback Data
option must be set for 0 mA output. This removes one of the pair of redundant output channels
from service for detectable problems such as an FBM not properly receiving output writes, not
passing security tests on FBM microprocessor writes to output registers, failure of internal FBM
diagnostics, or FBM module watchdog timer time-out. Setting of the Output Fail-safe Configuration (Hold/Fallback) option for 0 mA output also minimizes the possibility of a fail high

FBM243 Channel Isolated FoxCom Dual Baud Rate Intelligent


Device Interface Module
FBM243 (Foxboro part number P0914TK) contains eight individual channels that provide isolated power and FoxCom communication capabilities to an Intelligent Transmitter/Positioner
over a single twisted pair of wires. The module also allows the use of an external power supply to
power the IT. The use of an external power supply common to two or more loops requires a
Cable Balun Module to maintain communication signal line balance.
The module provides bidirectional digital communications at 4800 baud rate between the Intelligent Field Device and the system redundant Fieldbus, or provides bidirectional digital communications at 600 baud rate between the field device and the module while allowing a simultaneous 4
to 20 mA analog signal to an emergency shutdown system. The baud rate is determined by the
configuration of the field device connected to each channel, independently of the other channels.
The module is an IT host, enabling the system to receive digital messages from the transmitter in
engineering units. Each message is received 10 times per second at 4800 baud, and two times per
second at 600 baud and contains:

Up to three measured variables in IEEE 32-bit floating-point format

transmitters or positioners may be in either analog or digital mode.
NOTE

FBM246 is primarily a digital interface and operation of all transmitters in digital

for special applications (For example, when the measurement is required for an
Emergency Shutdown System that requires 4 to 20 mA signals).

Each channel provides isolated power and digital communication capabilities to an Intelligent
Transmitter (IT) over a single twisted pair of wires. The module also allows the use of an external
power supply to power the IT. The use of an external power supply common to two or more
loops requires a Cable Balun Module to maintain communication signal line balance.
The physical arrangement is similar to that used for FBM205 pairs. The slot pairs are (1, 2) (3, 4)
(5, 6) (7, 8). The first (odd) member of the pair is referred to as the main and the second is
referred to as the backup. The module that is the primary source of data is considered active and
the other module (if it is working normally) would be in the track state.
The pair of FBM246s supports transmitters and positioners, using ECB18 for transmitters and
ECB74 for positioners. Control blocks connect to the ECB18 and ECB74 child ECBs in the
same way the equivalent non-redundant strategy would be configured using an FBM243, providing a redundant digital communications path to single FoxCom devices. The connected device
ECBs normally get their input data from the active member of the pair. They use input data from
the module in track mode, if this was the only good source of data. Output writes to positioners
are sent to both modules.
The ECB used with the pair of FBM246s is ECB38R. The letterbug for the ECB38R is the letterbug of the first member of the pair. This is the letterbug that is displayed in the icon on the System Management Display Handler display.
The module provides bidirectional communication at 4800 baud between the IT and the system
redundant Fieldbus, or provides bidirectional communications at 600 baud while allowing a
simultaneous 4 to 20 mA analog signal to an emergency shutdown system. The baud rate is determined by the configuration of the field device connected to each channel independently of the
other channels.

floor-mounted unit with both front- and rear-door access, with DIN rails for mounting of the
baseplates and termination assemblies. It also contains wireways, optional I/O shield earthing
bars, power junction boxes, and optionally redundant power supplies.
The enclosures differ only in their environmental ratings: B03, having a NEMA 4 rating, can be
located in harsh environmental areas; B04, having a NEMA 12 rating, is designed for mild (ordinary) environmental areas.
As shipped from the factory, the B03 or B04 Enclosure is designed for either General Purpose or
Hazardous Area (Class 1, Division 2, Zone 2) area classification, per customer specification.
Figure 1-17 shows the basic enclosure equipment configuration. As shipped from the factory,
cable entry is from the bottom. However, the enclosure can be modified on-site for top cable
entry. Also, the enclosure can be reconfigured on-site to meet the needs of other specific applications. For example, an enclosure can be reconfigured to contain only baseplates (up to eight) or
only termination assemblies. (Refer to Thermal Loading on page 31 to ensure that thermal dissipation figures for the enclosure will not be exceeded.)
The dual power supply option provides redundancy protection against power failures. The power
entry junction boxes accept primary or optional secondary ac power and direct it to the primary
or optional secondary power supply.

Figure 1-17. B03/B04 Enclosure, Typical Equipment Configuration

B05 Enclosure
As shipped, the B05 enclosure contains up to two baseplates, horizontally mounted on DIN rails,
for mounting up to 16 FBMs and FCMs in combination. It is a wall-mounted unit with frontdoor access, and DIN rails for mounting of the baseplates and termination assemblies. It also contains wireways, optional I/O shield earthing bars, power junction boxes, and optionally redundant power supplies.
Two levels of environmental protection are available to allow the enclosure to be used in various
locations: outdoors, sheltered, and indoors, as follows:
NEMA 4 Version Painted steel enclosure with NEMA ratings of 1, 3R, 4, 12, and
13 (IP55)
NEMA 4X Version Stainless steel enclosure with NEMA ratings of 1, 4, 4X, and 12
(IP66).
As shipped from the factory, the B05 Enclosure is designed for General Purpose or Hazardous
Area (Class 1, Division 2, Zone 2) area classification.

B0400FA Rev D

1. Overview

Figure 1-18 shows the basic enclosure equipment configuration.


As shipped from the factory, the B05 enclosure is equipped for bottom cable entry. However, the
enclosure can be reconfigured on-site for top cable entry. In the NEMA 4 version, wires enter
through a cable entry panel located at the bottom of the enclosure. For top cable entry, the outer
shell of the enclosure is rotated 180, placing the cable entry panel at the top.
For the NEMA 4X version, users must provide their own cable access ports (for top or bottom
cable entry), in keeping with maintenance of the enclosures protection classification.
The dual power supply option provides redundancy protection against power failures. The power
entry junction boxes accept primary or optional secondary ac power and direct it to the primary
or optional secondary power supply.

Termination Assemblies
Termination Assemblies (TAs), designed for DIN rail mounting, provide a means for linking the
DIN rail mounted Fieldbus Modules (FBMs) with their associated field device wiring (see
Figure 1-19). Multiple types of field I/O signal terminations are available with each FBM type
(FBM201, FBM202, and so forth), to provide the necessary signal handling and circuit
protection required by the particular FBM.
Some TAs have built-in signal conditioning, where required, to interface high-voltage inputs. The
signal conditioning also provides isolation and FBM circuit protection. Wire terminations on the
TAs accept compression type wiring or ring lug termination, depending on the specific TA type.
Each TA connects to the baseplate-mounted FBM by means of a termination cable. In nonredundant FBM configurations, the cable connects directly to a baseplate-mounted connector
directly below (or adjacent to) the associated FBM. In a redundant FBM configuration, an
adapter plugs into the two I/O connectors on the Baseplate and a single TA cable connects the
adapter to the TA.
For detailed descriptive information on the TAs, associated cables, and how the TAs are used,
refer to Field Signal Connections on page 91.

1. Overview

2. Enclosure Installation
This chapter consists of installation information for the DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem
enclosures.
DIN rail mounted FBM enclosures consist of the following:
B03 enclosure A sealed, floor-mounted enclosure, holding up to four baseplates,
and having a NEMA 4 rating
B04 enclosure A sealed, floor-mounted enclosure, holding up to four baseplates,
and having a NEMA 12 rating

B05 enclosure A sealed, wall-mounted enclosure, holding up to two baseplates and


having a choice of a NEMA 4 or 4X rating.
NOTE

If the baseplates in your DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem are to be mounted in
an enclosure other than those mentioned above, refer to Equipment Installation
on page 51.
Installation of the DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem enclosures involves mounting the enclosure
on the floor (in the case of the B03 or B04 enclosure), or on a wall (in the case of the B05 enclosure) at the desired location, and making the required main power and earth connections.
! WARNING
To prevent the hazard of electrical shock and signal interference, high voltage main
power cables (those carrying 30 V rms or greater, or 60 V dc or greater) must be
kept separate from low voltage signal cables (those carrying less than 30 V rms, or
less than 60 V dc). Separate conduit, cable runs, and so forth, must be used, as well
as separate cable entries into the enclosure. The minimum allowable separation
between high and low voltage cables is 50 mm (2 in) at all points in the cable run.

! CAUTION
Where CE compliance is required when utilizing Lambda 24-Volt dc power supplies, a metal enclosure and PDU Part Number P0916XA or P0916XD must also
be used. This restriction does not apply when the Foxboro Model FPS 400-24
power supply is used.

Preinstallation Procedures
The following procedures provide general information regarding unloading and unpacking of all
DIN rail mounted FBM equipment, and performing checks on the power network to be used by
the equipment.

29

B0400FA Rev D

2. Enclosure Installation

Unloading
The DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem units are designed to withstand vibration and shock normally encountered during shipping and installation; however, extreme shocks and vibration
should be avoided. If practical, all major movements of the units should be accomplished before
the units are unpacked.

Unpacking
The following unpacking procedure applies, in general, to all DIN rail mounted FBM
subsystem units:
1. Inspect the exterior of the shipping carton for obvious damage. (Any noticeable damage should be indicated in the shippers bill of lading.)
2. Verify that the equipment received is that described in the bill of lading.
3. Remove shipping straps, shipping shroud, and other packing materials, such as polyethylene bags and styrofoam cushioning materials.
NOTE

If you anticipate that the unit will be stored, or shipped from the present site, save
all packing materials for reuse.
4. If the unit is attached to a skid, remove all shipping hardware and hold-down bolts
used to fasten the unit to the skid. Separate the skid from the unit.
5. Ensure that the appropriate interconnecting cables are present, by comparing the
cable part numbers and quantities with those listed in the bill of lading.

Subsystem Power Checks


Perform the following checks before installing the equipment:
1. Check that the required ac or dc power distribution network lines are installed.
2. Check that the appropriate number of ac power outlets (if required) are installed and
spaced appropriately.
3. Switch on main system power and, using a multimeter, check that the appropriate
operating voltage exists at each enclosure connection point.

2. Enclosure Installation

B0400FA Rev D

Thermal Loading
The enclosures have limitations regarding the amount of heat (power) they can dissipate. These
limitations, in turn, can affect the quantity of modules and termination assemblies that can be
contained in the enclosures. The values for allowable heat dissipation within the enclosures
depend on the ambient (external) temperature, as shown in the following table:

-20 to +50C (-4 to +122F)
-20 to +60C (-4 to +140F)
-20 to +50C (-4 to +122F)

To determine whether the total equipment selected for mounting in an enclosure exceeds these
values, add the power dissipation values for the power supplies and all modules and termination
assemblies to be mounted in the enclosure.
! CAUTION
While the FBMs have a high operating temperature limit of 70 C, some termination assemblies have a high operating temperature limit of only 50 C. If in doubt
regarding the application/installation of certain termination assemblies for use with
associated FBMs, refer to the appropriate TA PSSs for the temperature specifications.
The heat dissipation (and power consumption) values for the DIN rail mounted Fieldbus Communications modules (FCMs), Fieldbus Modules (FBMs), termination assemblies (TAs), and
power supplies are listed in Table 2-1, Table 2-2, and Table 2-4. Per-channel power consumption
for the various types of inputs/outputs are listed in Table 2-3.

B03/B04 Enclosure Cable Entry


As shipped from the factory, the B03 or B04 enclosure is equipped for bottom cable entry. Either
enclosure type (B03 or B04) has a single, removable metal plate, located at the bottom (inside) of
the enclosure, which can be drilled or punched for cable routing.
If top cable entry is required, it is recommended that the junction boxes and power supplies be
moved to the top (within the enclosure), to reduce the ac cable run within the enclosure. (This
will minimize the effects of electromagnetic interference from the cables.) To make room for the
junction boxes and power supplies, move the baseplates to the lower section of the enclosure.

36

2. Enclosure Installation

B0400FA Rev D

For either type of cable entry (top or bottom), actual cable entry into the enclosure is provided by
drilling or punching the required openings in the enclosures top or bottom plate. Appropriate fittings and sealants (as required) must be used at the points of cable (conduit) entry, to maintain
the enclosures contamination protection classification.

B03/B04 Enclosure Equipment Configurations and Mass


As shipped from the factory, a B03 or B04 enclosure typically contains up to four baseplates,
redundant or non-redundant power supplies and junction boxes, I/O shield earth bus bars, and
enclosure side panels. The number of termination assemblies (TAs) that can be accommodated in
this typical configuration is 28 to 46, depending on the dimensions of the TAs used.
Figure 1-17 shows a typical B03/B04 enclosure equipment configuration.
An enclosure ordered empty can accommodate up to eight baseplates, along with the required
power supplies and junction boxes. Alternatively, an enclosure ordered empty can acccommodate
56 to 92 TAs, depending on the dimensions of the TAs used.
A fully loaded B03 or B04 enclosure has a mass of 191 kg (425 lb). With skids and packaging, the
mass is 214 kg (475 lb).

B03/B04 Enclosure Mounting


The B03/B04 enclosure is designed for floor mounting. Wires, cables, and conduits enter through
the bottom of the enclosure but, as mentioned previously, the enclosure can be reconfigured onsite for top cable entry. Front and rear doors provide access to the equipment and wiring areas.
Additionally, the doors can be mounted to open from left-to-right or right-to-left.
Before proceeding with mounting of the B03/B04 enclosure, the following issues must be
considered:

High and low voltage cables must be separated (see the Warning statement on
page 29).
The type of enclosure (B03 or B04), and whether top or bottom cable entry (or both)
is to be employed. Bottom cable entry can be from below the enclosure (from beneath
a raised floor or from a cable trough), or from floor level via the openings provided by
removing the front and rear access panels on the enclosure base. For either enclosure
type, if top cable entry is used it is effected via conduit, which is fed through the
enclosures top panel.
NOTE

For information on B03/B04 enclosure dimensions and clearance requirements,


refer to B03/B04 Enclosure Dimensions and Clearance Requirements on page 35.
1. If the enclosure is to be bolted to the floor:
a. Place the enclosure in the desired location.
b. Locate the mounting holes at the corners of the base (see Figure 2-2).
(This requires removal of the sealing plate at the bottom of the enclosure.)
c. Mark the hole locations on the floor.
d. Move the enclosure away from the markings.

37

B0400FA Rev D

2. Enclosure Installation

e. Drill the holes in the floor, and install the appropriate mounting hardware in the
holes. (The hardware used depends on the type of floor and is left to your
discretion.)
f. Move the enclosure over the holes and fasten it to the floor using suitable
hardware.
2. If cable entry is to be from the bottom:
a. Remove the cable access plate from the inside base of the enclosure. (This also
requires disconnecting the ground wire attached to the plate.)
b. Drill or punch the required holes in the cable access plate and provide appropriate
fittings and sealants (as required) for a watertight seal.
c. Replace the cable access plate and reconnect the ground wire.
! CAUTION
In Step 3, before drilling or punching holes for top cable entry, take measures to
ensure that metal debris will not fall into any installed electronic equipment.
3. If cable entry is to be from the top (this assumes that the enclosure has been reconfigured for top cable entry on-site, as described under B03/B04 Enclosure Cable Entry
on page 36):
a. Remove the enclosure top panel by unscrewing the four bolts holding it in place.
(This also requires disconnecting the ground wire attached to the panel.)
b. Drill or punch holes in the enclosure top panel in positions (at the discretion of
the user) required for cable routing into the enclosure.
c. Provide appropriate conduit fittings and sealants (as required) for a watertight or
dust-resistant seal, as required.
d. Replace the enclosure top panel and reconnect the ground wire.

Adjoining B04 Enclosures


Multiple B04 enclosures can be adjoined to maximize use of floor space. The Rittal Corporation
(original manufacturer of the B04 enclosure) offers several different types of kits for adjoining the
enclosures. Rittal can be contacted by phone at 1-800-477-4000, online at
http://www.rittal-corp.com, or by email rittal@rittal-corp.com.

B03/B04 Enclosure Over-Temperature Sensing


The B03/B04 enclosure is not shipped with an over-temperature sensor. If this feature is desired,
off-the-shelf sensors are readily available from local equipment vendors.
NOTE

The B03 and B04 enclosures are designed to adequately dissipate all power developed by the DIN rail subsystem equipment housed within them. If the specified
guidelines herein are followed (see Thermal Loading on page 31) over-temperature conditions should not arise.

B05 Enclosure Cable Entry


NEMA 4 Version
The NEMA 4 version of the B05 enclosure contains a removable cable access plate at the base of
the enclosure. This plate can be temporarily removed for convenient drilling or punching of holes
to provide the necessary cable entry points. If top cable entry is desired, the enclosure can be modified on-site to place the cable access plate at the top, as follows:
1. Referring to Figure 1-18, notice that all enclosure components are mounted on a
metal plate, which is attached to the shell of the enclosure by means of six bolts (three
at the top and three at the bottom).
44

2. Enclosure Installation

B0400FA Rev D

! CAUTION
The metal plate with its attached equipment is heavy, and can thus cause injury to
personnel during lifting. To prevent injuries when lifting this plate, use two people
to do the lifting, or use an appropriate mechanical lifting device.
2. With the enclosure laying on its back (on the floor), remove the six bolts mentioned
in Step 1.
3. Lift the metal plate (along with its attached components) and rotate it 180 (Alternatively, the enclosure shell can be rotated while the metal plate is held above it.)
4. Re-fasten the enclosure metal plate to the enclosure shell using the six bolts.
For either type of cable entry (top or bottom), actual cable entry into the enclosure is provided by
drilling or punching the required openings in the enclosures top or bottom plate. Appropriate fittings and sealants (as required) must be used at the points of cable (conduit) entry, to maintain
the enclosures contamination protection classification.
! CAUTION
Before drilling or punching holes for top cable entry, take measures to ensure that
metal debris will not fall into any installed electronic equipment.

NEMA 4X Version
The NEMA 4X (stainless steel) version of the B05 enclosure does not contain a removable cable
access plate; the bottom or top panel of the enclosure must be drilled or punched to provide the
necessary cable entry points. Also, appropriate fittings and sealants (as required) must be used at
the points of cable (conduit) entry, to maintain the enclosures contamination protection
classification.

B05 Enclosure Equipment Configuration and Mass


As shipped from the factory, the B05 enclosure typically contains up to two baseplates, redundant
or non-redundant power supplies and junction boxes, and I/O shield earth bus bars. The enclosure is sized to accommodate the appropriate number of TAs for most applications.
Figure 1-18 shows a typical B05 enclosure equipment configuration. A fully loaded B05 enclosure
has a mass of 169 kg (375 lb). With skids and packaging, the mass is 187 kg (415 lb).

B05 Enclosure Mounting


The B05 enclosure is designed for wall mounting, with wires, cables, and conduits entering
through the top or bottom of the enclosure.
NOTE

1. Before proceeding with mounting of the B05 enclosure, you must be aware that
the high and low voltage cables must be separated (see the Warning statement on
page 29).
2. For B05 dimensions and clearance requirements, refer to B05 Enclosure Dimensions and Clearance Requirements on page 43.

45

B0400FA Rev D

2. Enclosure Installation

To mount the B05 enclosure, proceed as follows.


1. Attach the wall mounting brackets to the rear of the enclosure (see Figure 2-7). For
the NEMA 4 version of the enclosure, attach the brackets using the hardware provided (bolts, nuts, and washers). For the NEMA 4X (stainless steel) version, the
brackets must be welded in place to maintain the NEMA 4X rating.
! CAUTION
The enclosure is heavy, and can thus cause injury to personnel during lifting. In
order to perform the following procedure safely, three persons must be employed,
two for lifting of the enclosure and the third for marking of the bolt locations (and
later tightening the bolts) on the wall.

NOTE

1. To reduce the weight of the enclosure during this installation procedure, it may
be desirable to remove the door.
2. The mounting brackets contain slots and holes. This procedure assumes that the
holes are used, but the procedure may be altered for use of the slots.
2. Provide the required mounting holes in the wall, proceed as follows:
a. Place the enclosure (with its attached wall mounting brackets) in the desired location against the wall, and mark the wall at the four bolting positions.
b. Move the enclosure away from the wall and set it on the floor.
c. Drill the four holes in the wall, as necessary for accepting 10 mm mounting bolts.
3. Position the enclosure on the wall such that the wall mounting brackets align with the
four drilled holes. Then install two 10 mm bolts in the two top mounting positions,
along with the required washers and lock washers. Tighten the bolts securely.
4. Install two 10 mm bolts in the two bottom mounting positions, along with the
required washers and lock washers, and tighten securely.
5. Referring to B05 Enclosure Cable Entry on page 44, provide the necessary cable
cutouts and install (as required) sealed conduit fittings.

B05 Enclosure Over-Temperature Sensing


The B05 enclosure is not shipped with an over-temperature sensor. If this feature is desired, offthe-shelf sensors are readily available from local equipment vendors.

Power Supply Mounting and Installation


NOTE

This subsection pertains only to those instances where users are installing baseplates
into their own custom enclosures.
If the DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem equipment is to be mounted in a facility other than a
DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem enclosure (B03, B04, or B05), you must install a primary and
(if applicable) secondary power supply in your enclosure(s). The enclosures use either the Foxboro
Power Supply or Lambda Power Supplies as described in the following paragraphs.

Foxboro Power Supply (FPS400-24)

NOTE

In some installations, per user preference, it may be desirable to add ground fault
detection equipment at the Lambda power supply output terminals. Addition of
this equipment is in fact possible because, with regard to direct current (dc), the +
and - output terminals are isolated from the power supply case. Note, however, that
RFI filtering capacitors (typically 0.1 I LQWHUQDOWRWKHSRZHUVXSSO\FRQQHFW

Baseplate Installation
NOTE

The B03, B04, and B05 enclosures are shipped with the baseplates in place. The
instructions presented here are for custom mounting of the baseplates in user-supplied
enclosures.
The DIN rail mounted Fieldbus module baseplate can be mounted three different ways:

Horizontal mounting of the baseplate (P0914XA) on a brace-supported or


backplate-supported horizontal DIN rail.
Vertical mounting of the baseplate (P0914XB) on a brace-supported or backplatesupported vertical DIN rail.

Horizontal mounting of the baseplate (P0914XA) in a standard, 483 mm (19-inch)


rack, without the use of a DIN rail. A mounting bracket kit, P0930AS, contains the
necessary hardware for mounting the Baseplate and provides a 25.4 mm (1 in)
mounting depth. The mounting bracket attaches to the rear of the horizontal baseplate (P0914XA) using four screws provided with the bracket.

DIN Rail Mounting of the Horizontal Baseplate


As illustrated in Figure 3-10 mechanical support is required for horizontal DIN rail mounting of
the baseplate. This support, required for all mounting configurations of the baseplates, can be in
the form of metal braces, a backplate, or a wall. The added support prevents unnecessary movement or twisting motion of the DIN rail/baseplate combination.

3. Equipment Installation

B0400FA Rev D

To install a horizontally mounted DIN rail baseplate (P0914XA) or a vertically mounted baseplate (P0914XB) on a structurally supported DIN rail, proceed as follows:
1. Referring to Figure 3-11, using a 3/32 inch (2.4 mm) electricians flat-head (common)
screw driver, back off both clamping screws to within 3 to 4 threads of disengaging the
clamp. (An easy check for this is that the end of the screw will be fully inside the body
of the clamp.)
2. Confirm that both clamps are cocked at an angle (as shown in Figure 3-11). If a clamp
is not cocked, press lightly in the center of the clamp and release. The clamp should
spring back into the correct position.
3. Mount the baseplate onto the DIN rail by engaging both clamps. The hooks closest to
the field cabling side must engage first. (Throughout the process, firm positive pressure must be applied to the baseplate.) Confirm that the clamps have successfully
engaged by pulling up on the module side of the baseplate. If either corner lifts, one of
the clamps is not fully engaged. If this is the case, remove the baseplate by jiggling it
while gently pulling it away from the DIN rail, and then repeat steps 1 and 2.
4. While pressing the baseplate firmly against the DIN rail, continue the firm, positive
pressure and tighten both clamping screws securely.
4. With firm pressure applied to
baseplate, tighten clamp screws.*

1. Back off clamping screws


almost completely.*

2. Clamps must be cocked


at an angle, as shown.*
3. Mount baseplate onto DIN rail
by engaging both clamps.*

* See text for detailed procedure.


Figure 3-11. Mounting of Baseplate on DIN Rail

To remove a horizontally mounted baseplate from the DIN rail, proceed as follows:
1. Remove all modules (FBMs and FCMs) and cabling from the baseplate.
2. Loosen the two clamping screws, turning them ten turns counterclockwise.Float the
baseplate on the DIN rail and gently move it top-to-bottom while moving it toward
you, causing the clamps to disengage from the DIN rail.

Baseplate ID Switch Setting


Each baseplate contains a two-switch (four-position) DIP switch, which must be set for proper
subsystem operation. The ID of each baseplate must be a number from 0 to 3, which is set by
means of the two switches (see Figure 3-17).
The particular sequence of the baseplate ID numbers does not matter. The baseplates can be
numbered according to their physical placement in the enclosure(s), or according to their positions in the cable connection scheme. However, no two baseplates in the grouping (on the same
FCM or FCM pair) may be assigned the same ID number.

1. When installing the modules on the baseplate, use a 5/32 hex driver tool
(Foxboro P/N X0179AZ). If another type of tool must be used, make sure that it
does not generate more than 12 inch/pounds of torque, or you might strip the
threaded inserts out of the baseplate.
2. The modules must be screwed in place for secure operation. Do not rely on the signal connectors to hold the modules in place.
3. For safety reasons, always consider the possible impact on plant operations before
removing a module from the baseplate.
Modules can be removed/replaced while power is applied to the baseplate without damaging the
module or baseplate electronics.

Figure 3-18. Baseplate Module and Letterbug Installation

FBM Installation (Placement)


Non-redundant (single) FBMs may be placed in any available position on the baseplate. On the
horizontal baseplate, install redundant FBMs in adjacent odd/even paired positions working from
right to left (positions 7 and 8, 5 and 6, 3 and 4, and 1 and 2). On the vertical baseplate, redundant FBMs may be placed in any adjacent odd/even paired positions.

FCM10E or FCM10Ef Installation (Placement)


These modules are used only on the first baseplate (in a group of up to four). On the horizontal
baseplate, the modules are placed in positions 7 and 8; on the vertical baseplate, the modules are
placed in the first two positions (1 and 2). If a single (non-redundant) FCM10E or FCM10Ef
module is to be installed, it must be installed in position 7 on the horizontal baseplate, or position
1 on the vertical baseplate. [The slot next to it (to the right of it) must remain empty.]
NOTE

Where a redundant Ethernet trunk Fieldbus is used, the FCM10E or FCM10Ef


module pair, at any given time, communicates on one bus only (bus A or B). The
odd slot corresponds to bus A, and the even slot to bus B.

3. Equipment Installation

B0400FA Rev D

FCM2F2/4/10 Installation (Placement)


Install redundant FCM2F2/4/10 modules in the first two positions (1 and 2) and/or the last two
positions (7 and 8) on the baseplate. In a nonredundant configuration, use the odd-numbered
positions (1 and/or 7) only. If a single (nonredundant) FCM2F2/4/10 module is installed, the
slot next to it (position 2 and/or position 8) may be used for FBM installation.
NOTE

Where a redundant module Fieldbus is used, the FCM2F2/4/10 module pair, at


any given time, communicates on one bus only (bus A or B). The odd slot corresponds to bus A, and the even slot to bus B.

FCM Identification Assembly Installation


The FCM identification assembly contains sockets for letterbug sets, which provide system
addressing for the FCM(s) (FCM10E or FCM10Ef ). [Letterbugs for the FBMs are derived from
characters in these (FCM) letterbug sets.] Two FCM identification assembly types (similar in
function) are available: P0914ZM for use on the horizontal baseplate and P0914ZX for use on
the vertical baseplate. Place the FCM identification assembly on the I/O connectors adjacent to
the associated FCM10E or FCM10Ef module(s).
To install the FCM identification assembly simply insert it onto the two I/O connectors below
the FCM(s), as shown in Figure 3-18. Secure the assembly in place by tightening the two common retaining screws.

Letterbug Set Installation


Assemble and install the letterbug set for each FCM10E or FCM10Ef module as shown in
Figure 3-18. To determine the letterbug characters for the FCM10E or FCM10Ef (and the associated FBMs) refer to Module Addressing, below.

Module Addressing
Baseplate-mounted modules (FBMs and FCMs)1 are identified to the system software by means
of a unique, 6-character string called a letterbug. The letterbug string for a particular FBM or
FCM is established from three factors:
Setting of physical letterbug set(s) for the FCM(s)1 on the first baseplate (in a group of
up to four baseplates).
The number of the baseplate (0 - 3) in the group of up to four, as set by means of the
pair of baseplate ID switches on each baseplate (see Figure 3-18).
The physical position (1 - 8) of the module on the baseplate.

1.

The one exception is the FCM2F2/4/10, which has no letterbug set associated with it.
71

B0400FA Rev D

3. Equipment Installation

Figure 3-19 shows examples of how FBMs and FCMs assume unique letterbug addresses in accordance with these three factors. As shown in this figure, physical letterbug sets are user-installed for
the FCMs (up to two) on the first baseplate of the grouping. The first four characters in these letterbug sets are user-assigned, and are unique for each baseplate grouping. (These first four characters apply to all modules in the baseplate grouping.) The fifth character reflects the setting of the
baseplate ID switches (always zero for the first baseplate), and the sixth character is always zero.
NOTE

1. In the letterbug set associated with the FCM10E or FCM10Ef module(s), the
last two characters must be 00 (zero, zero).
2. Both letterbug sets for a redundant FCM pair must be identical.
The letterbugs for all the other modules (FBMs) mounted in the baseplate grouping are not physically installed, but are derived (and reported to system software) from the three factors mentioned previously. Accordingly, each FBM in the baseplate grouping has the same unique first
four characters (user-assigned for the FCMs); each has a fifth character derived from the baseplate
number (0 - 3); and each has a sixth character derived from the physical position (1 - 8) of the
module on the baseplate.
Thus, as illustrated on the left side of Figure 3-19, if the FCM letterbug characters set by the user
are NFFA00; the letterbug for the FBM in position 2 on the first baseplate (baseplate ID = 0) is
NFFA02; and letterbug for the FBM in position 3 of the second baseplate (baseplate ID = 1) is
NFFA13.
For the next grouping of baseplates (on the right in Figure 3-19), the letterbug assignments are
similar, but with different user-assigned first four characters.

Redundant Adapter Installation


The redundant adapter provides a redundant I/O connection to a single termination assembly
(TA). Contained in the adapter are the input sense resistors and output diodes required for operation of redundant FBM modules (FBM205, FBM237 and FBM246) with the TA. The redundant adapter is position dependent (use positions 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, or 7 and 8), since its
connectors must engage the corresponding pairs of connectors on the baseplate, adjacent to the
redundant FBM pair.
NOTE

As indicated previously, on the horizontal baseplate, redundant FBMs (and thus the
redundant adapter) are placed in adjacent odd/even paired positions working from
right to left on the baseplate.
Figure 3-20 shows installation of a redundant adapter for FBM205. The redundant adapter for
the FBM237and FBM246 is similar in construction.

(nonredundant) FBM237.] For a redundant pair of FBM246s, attach the redundant adapter,
P0917VU, onto the two I/O connectors adjacent to the FBM246s on the baseplate.

Termination Assembly Installation


Install the termination assemblies (TAs) by snapping them onto the DIN rail, as shown in
Figure 3-21.
To fix the TAs in place (and prevent them from sliding downward) it is recommended that an
end bracket be installed just below the bottommost TA.
To remove a TA, pry out each plastic DIN connector with a straight-slot screwdriver while lifting
the TA from the DIN rail (see Figure 3-21).
For information on TA loading in the enclosures, refer to Enclosure Installation on page 29. For
detailed descriptive information on the TAs and how they are used, refer to Field Signal Connections on page 91.
To connect TAs to the field I/O wiring, refer to Chapter 5 Field Signal Connections.

4. Equipment Signal Cabling


This chapter describes the subsystem signal cable connections, both at the Ethernet trunk
Fieldbus level and at the module Fieldbus (baseplate) level.

Ethernet Trunk Fieldbus Cable Connections


Ethernet trunk Fieldbus cabling configurations are shown in the following figures:
Figure 1-7. Typical Direct Network Configuration
Figure 1-8. Typical Active Star Network Configuration.
Both of these configurations involve the use of two types of customer-supplied cabling:
Ethernet (10Base2) and fiber optic. For the 10Base2 cabling, RG-58 (ThinNet) cable is used.
The equipment listed in Table 4-1 is offered for use in making the Ethernet and fiber optic cable
connections. Whether these items are shipped to your location depends on the Ethernet trunk
Fieldbus cabling configuration specified at the time of system purchase.
NOTE

The DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem was designed and tested for operation with
the Ethernet/fiber optic equipment listed Table 4-1. The subsystem may operate
with similar, off-the-shelf equipment, but Invensys Systems, Inc. is not responsible
for any system malfunctions that may occur if such equipment is used.
For reference purposes, specifications for the Ethernet/fiber optic equipment listed
here are presented in Appendix B Ethernet/Fiber Optic Equipment
Specifications.

T-connector For use with 10Base2 Coaxial Transceiver Module.

FCM10E modules are shipped equipped with T-connectors for making the BNC cable
connections.
The ThinNet (RG-58) cabling and associated BNC connectors used in making the Ethernet
cable connections are not Foxboro part numbered, but are readily attainable from your local cable
supplier.
For the fiber optic cabling specifications, refer to Fiber Optic Cable Specifications on page 88.
Point-to-point connections require four fiber optic cables for redundancy, two for transmitting
and two for receiving connectors. For this reason it is recommended that you purchase duplex
cabling, which consists of two fibers intertwined in a single cable. The cables must be terminated
with ST-type connectors, and the maximum allowable cable length for any fiber optic point-topoint connection is 2 km.
Other fiber optic cable requirements, such as flexibility or durability, depend on the particular
application. Check with your cable vendor/installer for a listing of application-specific cable characteristics.
NOTE

For maximum allowable lengths for cables running between Ethernet trunk Fieldbus equipment, refer to Product Sizing Constraints on page 26.
Both types of cabling (RG-58 coaxial and fiber optic) are normally accomplished by cable specialists. Therefore, associated cable fabrication and termination are beyond the scope of this document. However, the following subsections provide specific cable connection information.

Ethernet Trunk Fieldbus Connections at the I/A Series Control


Station
NOTE

The use of surge protectors (Citel CXD Station Protector or equivalent) is recommended at the I/A Series control station if the Ethernet Trunk Fieldbus cable run is
subject to lightning strikes.
The control station connects to two lengths of RG-58 (10Base2) cabling (for redundancy), one
for bus A cable, and one for bus B cable of the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus. For general information on how the connections are made, refer to Figure 1-7, and Figure 1-8 on. For specific information on making Ethernet trunk Fieldbus connections at the I/A Series control station, refer to
the installation document for the control station in question [for example, Control Processor 60

Fiber Optic Extension of Ethernet Trunk Fieldbus


The length of the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus can be extended by adding a segment of fiber optic
cabling to bus A and bus B of the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus. The conversion (RG-58 to fiber
optic and vice versa) for each redundant channel is performed by two BNC to Fiber-ST Media
Converters (see Table 4-1).
Proceed as follows to connect a fiber optic extension to each redundant length of RG-58
coaxial (10Base2) cabling from the control station:
1. Assemble the media converter mounting bracket (P0917PB) for each BNC to
Fiber-ST Media Converter to be used (see Figure 4-1).

Connections from the Media Converters to the Multiport Fiber Optic


Converters
The redundant active star network configuration requires redundant multiport fiber optic converters (hubs) to link the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus to multiple baseplates (multiple FCM10Ef
modules). [This differs from the method used in the direct network configuration, in which the
baseplates (with FCM10E modules) connect directly to the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus via cable
drops.] Fiber optic cabling from the hubs to the FCM10Ef modules can be up to 2 kilometers in
length.
In the redundant active star network configuration, the two multiport fiber optic converters must
be designated (and labeled) as Hub A and Hub B, in accordance with which channels they
support (bus A and bus B of the Ethernet trunk Fieldbus).
Each multiport fiber optic converter is shipped with an AUI transceiver module, which you must
replace with the 10Base2 Coaxial Transceiver Module (P0916JN).
The following procedure describes how to replace the AUI transceiver module with a 10Base2
Coaxial Transceiver Module, and how to make the RG-58 Ethernet trunk Fieldbus cable connections from the redundant BNC to Fiber-ST Media Converters to the redundant multiport fiber
optic converters.
1. Unscrew the AUI transceiver module from the hub.
2. Detach the module casing from the AUI connector.
3. Plug the rear of the 10Base2 Coaxial Transceiver Module to the AUI connector, as
shown in Figure 4-4.
4. Secure the AUI connector to the 10Base2 Coaxial Transceiver Module with the 4-40
pan-head screws (included), as shown in Figure 4-4.

8. Attach the power cable from the power connector on each hub to a plug provided by
the power distribution unit in the enclosure.
9. For each baseplate which must connect to a hub, attach two fiber optic cables to the
receive (RX) and transmit (TX) ports on the front of both hub A and hub B, as
shown in Figure 4-5.
Cabling connections to each hub must be at identical channels (that is, if you attached
fiber optic cables to channel 3 on hub A, you must attach fiber optic cables for the
same baseplate to channel 3 on hub B).
10. Run the cables to their associated baseplates.
You have completed the cable connections to the redundant multiport fiber optic converters
(hubs). Proceed to the following subsection to connect the fiber optic cables to the FCM10Ef
modules.

Connections from the Hub to the FCM10Ef Modules


Connect each pair of fiber optic cables [receive (RX) and transmit (TX)] from the ports on each
hub in the redundant pair to the FCM10Ef modules, as shown in Figure 4-6. Fiber optic cabling
from the hubs to the FCM10Ef modules must not exceed 2 kilometers in length.
! CAUTION
For each fiber optic cable, must one end must attach to the TX connector on the
hub, and the other end to the RX connector on its corresponding FCM10Ef. Data
cannot be transferred if both ends of the fiber optic cables are connected to RX or
TX connectors.

Signal Cable Connections Baseplate Level


This subsection provides information on the module Fieldbus connections between baseplates.
Depending on the specific configuration in question, these connections can be made using
shielded twisted-pair cable, fiber optic cable, or a combination of both.

Shielded Twisted-Pair Cable Connections


NOTE

When FBM220/221 modules are used in a multiple baseplate configuration, clampon ferrite cores (EMI filters) must be used on the twisted-pair cables. Refer to
FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 Communication Interface Modules (FBM220/FBM221)
Users Guide (B0400FD).
Figure 4-7 shows baseplate implementation using shielded twisted-pair cable connections. (This
cabling configuration corresponds to the baseplate implementation configuration in Figure 1-4.)
Using this configuration, the baseplates can be interconnected using up to 60 m (198 ft) total of
shielded-twisted pair cable. Shielded twisted-pair cables are available in the lengths shown in
Table 4-2.

Make the cable connections as shown in Figure 4-7. Because the two module Fieldbus cable connectors on the baseplate are parallel-wired internal to the baseplate, either connector may be used
for the baseplate-to-baseplate cable connections. Also, as shown in Figure 4-7, terminators
(P0916RB) must be used at all module Fieldbus connectors that are not used for actual connection of the module Fieldbus cables.

Combined Shielded Twisted-Pair and Fiber Optic Cabling Connections


NOTE

1. For fiber optic cabling specifications, refer to Fiber Optic Cable Specifications
on page 88.
2. The FCM2F10 requires single-mode fiber cable.
3. When FBM220/221 modules are used in a multiple baseplate configuration,
clamp-on ferrite cores (EMI filters) must be used on the twisted-pair cables. Refer
to FOUNDATION fieldbus H1 Communication Interface Modules (FBM220/FBM221)
Users Guide (B0400FD).
Figure 4-8 shows baseplate implementation using combined shielded twisted-pair and fiber optic
cabling. (This cabling configuration corresponds to the baseplate implementation configuration
in Figure 1-5.) With this configuration, any two baseplates can be separated up to 10 km (6.2 mi)
using fiber optic cable. (Note, however, that overall maximum cable length constraints for the
subsystem must be observed, as described under Product Sizing Constraints on page 26.)
Three versions of the FCM2F provide three different fiber optic cabling distances:
FCM2F2 = 2 km (1.24 mi); FCM2F4 = 4 km (2.48 mi); FCM2F10 = 10 km (6.2 mi).
Make the cable connections as shown in Figure 4-8. The shielded twisted-pair cables are available
in lengths from 0.25 m to 60 m. (Refer to Shielded Twisted-Pair Cable Connections on page 84
for specific lengths.). Because the two module Fieldbus cable connectors on the baseplate are parallel-wired internal to the baseplate, either connector may be used for the baseplate-to-baseplate
cable connections. Also, as shown in Figure 4-8, terminators (P0916RB) must be used at all module Fieldbus connectors that are not used for actual connection of the module Fieldbus cables.
For the fiber optic cabling, required cable characteristics are described on page 78.

Fiber Optic Cable Specifications


Fiber optic cabling can be purchased from a qualified fiber optics cabling vendor/installer.
NOTE

1. The FCM2F10 requires single-mode fiber cable.


2. You are strongly urged to subcontract the installation of the fiber optic cables to
an experienced fiber optic cable system vendor/installer. However, if you have the
required skills, a kit manufactured by Optical Fiber Technologies, Inc., Billerica,
Massachusetts, can be used for preparing the fiber optic cable for termination and
installing connectors on the cables.
There is a wide variety of fiber optic cables available to meet most of your needs. Two general categories of cable types are indoor and outdoor cables. Figure 4-10 depicts the construction of a single-fiber indoor cable. Figure 4-11 illustrates an outdoor type cable, having multiple fiber bundles
and strength members that allow the cable to extend over greater distances.
It is recommended that the selected fiber optic cabling have the following characteristics:
Multimode
Graded-index fiber
62.5 micron core/125 micron cladding
Maximum allowable signal loss = 1 dB/km at a wavelength of 1300 nm
Maximum allowable signal loss = 3.5 dB/km at a wavelength of 850 nm.

Two fibers are required for basic (nonredundant) fiber-optic communication, one for transmission and the other for reception. The cables must be terminated with ST-type connectors. Cable
requirements such as flexibility and durability depend on the particular application. Check with
your cable installer/vendor for a listing of application-specific cable characteristics.
Table 4-3 lists physical data for two cables manufactured by Belden Wire & Cable that meet
Foxboro application specifications. It provides an example of the type of information commonly

5. Field Signal Connections


This chapter provides information on how to connect the I/O wiring between the DIN rail
mounted FBM subsystem and the field devices.

Field Wiring to Termination Assembly Connections


! WARNING
To prevent explosion, install and remove cables, wiring, modules and other replaceable components only when area is known to be nonhazardous.
Field wiring connects to the FBMs by means of termination assemblies (TAs), as illustrated in
Figure 5-1:
Field wiring attaches to the screw terminals on a termination assembly (TA), and
A termination cable connects the TA to the FBM (via a field connector on the
baseplate).

Depending on the type of FBM (FBM201, FBM202, and so forth), one or more TAs are available for each FBM to handle specific signals and/or voltage levels. The termination assemblies and
their associated termination cables are described in greater detail in the subsections of this chapter
dedicated to the individual FBMs.

5. Field Signal Connections

! CAUTION
Before making the field I/O connections, review the different types field wiring and
safety regulations in Field (Signal) Wires on page 95, and the types of signals
which each FBM can safely handle in Fieldbus Modules with Nonincendive Field
Circuits on page 98.
The termination assemblies should already be installed in your enclosure, as described in Termination Assembly Installation on page 74.
To make the field I/O connections to the appropriate TA (and the associated FBM), proceed as
follows:
1. Determine which termination assembly must be used with the selected FBM and its
associated field wiring. Refer to Termination Assembly Properties on page 103 for
information to help you determine this. Match the type of input and/or output signal
to the termination assembly which can handle it.
2. Write the identification (letterbug) of the selected FBM on the FBM Identification
portion of the termination assembly, as shown in Figure 5-2.

The screw terminals and their respective designators are shown on a typical
termination assembly in Figure 5-3.
For termination assemblies associated with FBM201, FBM204, FBM205, or
FBM211, attach the in-line resistor assembly, if required, to the termination assembly, as described in Figure 5-6.
For termination assemblies associated with FBM207, FBM217, FBM219, FBM241,
FBM241c, or FBM242, attach the necessary external fuses, relays, or external excitation voltage to the appropriate screw terminals on the termination assembly.
The screw terminals for connection to an external power source are separate from the
screw terminals for field wiring on the termination assembly, usually on a 2 tier block
with two terminals per block (see Figure 5-3).
Refer to the FBMxxx Field Connections section in this chapter (starting on
page 109) for information on determining which are the appropriate terminals (where
xxx is the number of the FBM to which you are connecting field wiring).
Plug one end of the appropriate termination cable into its connector on the termination assembly, as shown in Figure 5-2. Secure the termination cable by turning both of
its screw connectors clockwise until the cable is fastened.
Refer to the FBMxxx Field Connections section in this chapter for information to
help you determine which end of the cable to connect to the TA (where xxx is the
number of the FBM to which you are connecting field wiring).
Attach the other end of the termination cable to the appropriate input/output connector on the baseplate. Secure the termination cable by turning both of its screw connectors clockwise until the cable is fastened.
For a redundant pair of FBM205s or FBM237s, you must attach the termination
cable to the redundant adapter, which installs over the FBMs field connectors. (This
adapter was installed during Redundant Adapter Installation on page 73.)

You have completed connecting field wiring to the FBM.

Field (Signal) Wires


The following paragraphs discuss field wire classification, allowable quantity, size, and shield terminations.

Signal Wire Classification


Field (signal) wiring is divided into three classifications which, for safety reasons, must be physically isolated from one another by mutually exclusive conduits, pipes, troughs, raceways and/or
runs, and by using separate cable entries into enclosures. These classifications are shown in
Table 5-1.

95

B0400FA Rev D

5. Field Signal Connections

! WARNING
To reduce risk of fire or electric shock, do not interconnect the outputs of different
Class 2 circuits.

Table 5-1. Signal Wire Classification

High-Voltage (HV)
Low-Voltage (LV)
Nonincendive (NI)

Wires carrying voltages above 30 V rms (42.4 V peak) or 60 V dc.


Wires carrying voltages at or below 30 V rms (42.4 V peak) or 60 V dc.
These are termed Class 2 circuits in the U.S. and Canada. See Note.
Wires that enter or leave the equipment enclosure and, under normal
operating conditions, when shorted, opened, or grounded are not
capable, due to arcing or thermal effects, of igniting the specified
flammable gas/vapor-in-air mixture or combustible dust.

NOTE

The power sources in the FBM are voltage and power limited to Class 2 levels as
defined in the National Electrical Code (NFPA-70), Article 725 and the Canadian
Electrical Code, Section 16 (CSA C22.1). Field circuits that are connected to only
the FBM power sources are, by definition, Class 2 circuits. Field circuits that connect to an external, non-FBM power source are Class 2 only if the external power
source is listed/certified as Class 2. This is important to understand because the
U.S. National and the Canadian electrical codes have specific requirements that
apply to wiring methods used for Class 2 circuits.
The minimum allowable distance between wires or groups of wires in different classifications is
50 mm (2 in) at all points along the wire run.
! WARNING
Failure to separate these classifications of field wiring, as described herein, may
result in injury to personnel and/or property damage.

NOTE

1. Signal cables should not be routed in troughs, wireways, pipes, or conduits containing power cables, nor routed close to electric motors, welding machines, or
other equipment capable of generating significant amounts of electromagnetic
interference (EMI). Failure to comply may result in improper system operation.
2. All signal wiring must be twisted-pair to minimize cross-talk between channels.
Figure 5-4 shows separation schemes for incendive/nonincendive wiring.

96

5. Field Signal Connections

B0400FA Rev D

NOTE

The separation barriers shown in Figure 5-4 are an integral part of the enclosures.
Steps should be taken to bypass field outputs in case of an FBM signal termination
connector failure. The bypass capability can be placed in marshalling cabinets or
junction blocks on the field side of the signal termination connector. This allows
replacing of failed signal termination connectors while maintaining output signals.

Figure 5-4. Wiring Separation, Example

Number of Wires
The maximum number of field input/output wires allowed inside each enclosure is a function of
the sizes of the wires in conjunction with: 1) the available cross-sectional area of the I/O wire
channel(s), 2) the allowable number of termination blocks in the enclosure, and 3) where applicable, the requirement to separate the different classifications of field wires (as described under Signal Wire Classification on page 95).
These factors must be considered to avoid having too many I/O wires within a particular enclosure. You are responsible for determining the quantity of, and selecting sizes for, the field wires
scheduled for connection within any enclosure.

97

B0400FA Rev D

5. Field Signal Connections

Wire Size
For field I/O wiring, recommended wire size is between 0.47 mm diameter (24 AWG) and
2.05 mm diameter (12 AWG).

Shield Terminations
Where applicable, field wiring shields must be terminated using one of the following methods
(the preferred method is listed first):

At the transmitter (but not at both ends of the shield)


At the earth (ground) plate or bus bar within a user-supplied marshalling cabinet
At a bus bar within the enclosure. The bar must be connected to plant utility earth
using an 8 AWG (10 mm2) insulated green wire, or green wire with one or more yellow stripes.

Enclosure Termination Assembly Complement


For information on how many termination assemblies (TAs) can be accommodated in the various
types of enclosures, refer to the Chapter 2 Enclosure Installation.

Fieldbus Modules with Nonincendive Field Circuits


Some Fieldbus Modules (FBMs) have field circuits that are nonincendive when installed according to the electrical codes (requirements) described in the following paragraphs. This allows the
use of ordinary location wiring methods (for example, the field wiring not being enclosed in a
conduit) in Division 2/Zone 2 hazardous locations. There are two sets of requirements that apply:
Underwriters Laboratories (UL), which apply to North American (U.S. and Canadian) installations, and CENELEC, which apply to European installations. The requirements are similar in
concept, but terminology is somewhat different for each.
! WARNING
To prevent explosion, do not install or remove cables, wiring, modules, or other
replaceable system components in hazardous locations. Remove power to the equipment at the source or ensure that the atmosphere is non-explosive before installing
or removing any electrical component.

North American vs. CENELEC Terminology


In the following listing, the North American (UL) is the first given, and CENELEC is the second,
as in:
Voc (UL) = Um (CENELEC) = The maximum open circuit voltage available at the
FBM field terminals
Voc = Um = The maximum open-circuit voltage available at the FBM field terminals

Vmax = Ui = The maximum voltage that can be connected to the FBM field terminals
from an external source
Isc = Io = The maximum short-circuit current that can be supplied by the FBM field
terminals
98

5. Field Signal Connections

B0400FA Rev D

Imax = Ii = The maximum current that can be delivered to the FBM field terminals by
an external source
Ca = Co = The maximum total capacitance that can be connected to the FBM field
terminals
Ci = Ci = The effective capacitance of the internal FBM circuitry, as seen at the FBM
field terminals

La = Lo = The maximum total inductance that can be connected to the FBM filed
terminals
Li = Li = The effective inductance of the internal FBM circuitry, as seen at the FBM
field terminals.
The CENELEC terminology is used in the entity parameters table on page 101.

Requirements
The National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) allows the use of nonincendive circuits in Class I,
Division 2 Groups A through D; Class II, Division 2, Group G (and Groups E and F dusts with
resistivities greater than 100,000 ohms/centimeters); and Class III Division 2 hazardous locations. It allows the use of entity parameters in determining the suitability of connected field circuits/devices to individual FBM I/O terminals. The following information applies to the use of
FBMs with nonincendive field circuits.
The two basic types of nonincendive FBM field circuits are:
S those deriving their energy from the FBMs
R those suppling energy to the FBMs.

Type S
Type S field circuits are restricted by the maximum allowable connected capacitance (Co) and
maximum allowable connected inductance (Lo). These are determined from the maximum open
circuit voltage (Um) and the maximum short circuit current (Io) available at the FBM terminals.
Examples include:
Internally powered 0 to 20 mA I/O
Thermocouple inputs
RTD inputs
Contact sensor inputs
Internally powered output switches
Internally powered pulse inputs.

99

B0400FA Rev D

5. Field Signal Connections

Type R
Type R input field circuits have essentially zero input capacitance (Ci) and inductance (Li). The
nonincendivity of the field circuits is purely a function of the parameters of the user-connected
field devices, power sources, and wire. (You must determine these limits by referring to published
ignition curves, and incorporating the applicable safety factor for voltage or current per UL Standard 1604.) Examples include:
Voltage monitoring circuits
Externally powered 0 to 20 mA I/O
Externally powered output switching
Externally powered pulse inputs.
NOTE

Some FBMs have field circuits that cannot be made nonincendive (for example,
240 V load switching).
Table 5-2 specifies the entity parameters for each Fieldbus Module and termination assembly
combination that can be connected to nonincendive field circuits. For additional information
concerning the entity parameter concept, see UL Standard 1604.

Termination Assembly Properties


This subsection describes the types of signal inputs and outputs, and associated FBMs for the termination assemblies. Refer to Table 5-3 if you have a termination assembly part number and wish
to learn more about it.
Table 5-3 uses the following terms:

Channel isolation indicates that an I/O channel is galvanically isolated from all other
channels and earth (ground). When used with a termination assembly with channel
isolation, a Fieldbus Module withstands, without damage, a potential of 600 V ac
applied for one minute between any channel and ground, or between a given isolated
channel and any other isolated channel.
Group isolation indicates that all of the input and/or output channels in a termination assembly are isolated as a group from earth (ground). When used with a
termination assembly with group isolation, a Fieldbus Module withstands, without
damage, a potential of 600 V ac applied for one minute between the group isolated
channels and earth (ground). No input or output channels of group-isolated FBMs
should be grounded or ground referenced, as this can cause improper operation due to
ground loop errors.

Differential isolation indicates that each channel has a differential input to allow up
to approximately 1 volt voltage difference between channels without introducing
errors. Channels are not galvanically isolated from each other, but are isolated from
ground and the associated FBM. Differential group isolated inputs use the FBM subsystem power supply for field power. The module withstands, without damage, a
potential of 600 V ac applied for one minute between the differential isolated channels and earth (ground). The specific advantage of the differential isolation over group
isolation is that inputs or outputs can be grounded or ground-referenced as long as the
reference of any one channel with respect to any other channel reference is approximately 1 volt or less.
External Source indicates that power is supplied to the loop from a source other than
via the Fieldbus Module.
Redundant indicates that the module must be used in a redundant configuration (two
modules) with the appropriate redundant adapter and TA.
Redundant Ready indicates that the module may be used in a non-redundant configuration or with the appropriate redundant adapter in a redundant configuration.
Voltage source supplied in loop indicates that power is supplied to the loop from a
source located between the termination assembly and the I/O device in the loop.
Voltage source supplied outside loop indicates that power is supplied to the loop
from a source which connects to the power distribution terminals of the termination
assembly.
Refer to Enclosure Installation on page 29 for information on the heat dissipation and power
consumption of the TAs.

following steps:
1. Refer to the left half of the above illustration and cut the in-line resistor assembly (P0902VY) at
a point directly opposite the 200 ohm covered resistor.
2. Strip 10 mm (0.375 in) of insulation from the wire ends.
3. Refer to the right half of the above illustration and connect the wire end that is nearest the resistor
assembly label to the plus (+) terminal on the termination block.
4. Insert the other wire end into the insulated splice provided, together with the filed wire from the
minus terminal on the Intelligent Transmitter, and crimp the wires together using an electricians
pliers or crimping tool.

to the FBM.) It is recommended that one type of signal is used per assembly. You are responsible
for maintaining this segregation.
Refer to Termination Assembly Relays for relay contact specifications. Termination assembly
design limits current handling capability to 5 A per channel, 12 A per group of eight outputs.

Installing the Cable Balun Module


The Cable Balun Module (P0903SV) is normally mounted on a DIN rail in the enclosure, nearest the FBM(s) associated with it. The back of the module fits to the DIN rail. Two strain relief
brackets secure the module to the rail and also provide tie points for the cable wiring. To install
the module, refer to Figure 5-104 and Figure 5-105 and perform the following steps:
1. Orient the module as shown in the front view and slip the module against the DIN
rail (1).
2. Locate the two DIN rail mounting and the two cable strain relief brackets, and install
them on the DIN rail on the top and bottom of the module. The end of each bracket
(with the holes for the wire tie) should face toward the middle of the enclosure.
3. With the module in one hand, slide the strain relief brackets vertically with your other
hand, to the location on the rail where you want to mount and secure the module.
4. Press the other side of the module item 3 in against the DIN rail until it snaps in
place. Slide the brackets securely against the module.
5. Insert the positive wires to an FBM and the associated IT in the holes associated with
item 4 and item 5 respectively, and secure each of these wires by tightening the associated screw against the wire with a small flat-bladed screw driver. The positive module
terminals are: 1, 3, 5, and 7. Choose one of these terminals on each side of the Balun
Module.
199

6. The negative wires from the FBMs are dressed and secured to the common negative
node of the external power supply (see Figure 5-104). Wire the terminals 2, 4, 6, or 8
of the Balun Module on the FBM (system) side to the external power supply as
shown.
7. Connect the negative polarity wire of the external power supply to one of the terminals (6) shown in Figure 5-105.
8. Repeat Steps 5 and 6 for each FBM and IT associated with this module.

6. Configuration Information
This chapter provides system configuration information (System Definition) and control
configuring information (Integrated Control Configuration).
In general, configuration means specifying, to the I/A Series system software, the types of hardware and software modules that comprise the system, and the control blocks that will be used in
the control scheme. Prior to performing configuration procedures, you are encouraged to develop
I/O signal lists. Then, using FoxCAE, you should develop loop control schemes and loop drawings to document the control scheme. From the signal lists and loop drawings, you can determine
the type and quantity of DIN rail mounted FBMs required for your control scheme.

System Definition
NOTE

1. To minimize interruption of the process, it is advisable to perform System Definition prior to installing the DIN-rail mounted FBM subsystem equipment.
2. If the host I/A Series system is on-line (currently controlling the process), it may
be desirable to perform Integrated Control Configuration on-line, prior to performing System Definition. Using this method, process control using the DIN rail
mounted FBM subsystem equipment can commence immediately (following equipment installation), with the System Definition update being deferred until a more
convenient time.
To perform Integrated Control Configuration on-line, refer to On-Line Control
Configuration using the ICC on page 218.
System Definition identifies the I/A Series system components, system software required by each
component, the system component letterbugs, and other system characteristics for correctly loading system software and identifying the system software objects. System Definition produces a
Commit disk, which is required for software installation and, therefore, must be completed before
software installation. It is initially performed prior to installation of the system equipment, and it
is updated with any hardware/software system changes. Reports produced by System Definition
define the network of the system and provide information that can be used in conjunction with
equipment installation. In the future, if changes are made to the initial hardware layout, the System Definition database must be updated to reflect these changes.
Using System Definition, you define the type and quantity of modules, the letterbugs of the
FCM(s) and FBMs, and the software (for example, digital input, ladder logic, and so forth) for
the FBMs.

203

B0400FA Rev D

6. Configuration Information

Letterbug (Module Identifier) Assignments


The baseplate-mounted modules (FBMs and FCMs) are identified to system software by means
of unique, 6-character strings called letterbugs. The letterbug strings are physically established
on a baseplate (or group of baseplates) as part of the equipment installation (see Letterbug Set
Installation on page 71). They are also entered by you as part of the System Definition procedure, in the following subsection.

System Definition Procedure


To perform System Definition, refer to System Definition: A Step-By-Step Procedure (B0193WQ)
and configure the I/A Series system as described therein. The following describes the selection and
assignment of FBM and FCM letterbugs using the System Definition software.
From the Hardware Definition screen, perform the following:
1. Select Create from the top menu bar.
2. Select Field Modules from the drop-down menu.
3. From the Create Field Modules dialog box, select the type and quantity of FBMs and
FCMs required in the entire system. [Note that for each redundant FBM to be
included, two FBMs of that same type must be specified (for example, two FBM205s
must be specified for a redundant pair).]
4. After you have completed selecting the FBMs and FCMs, select OK. System Definition returns to the Hardware Definition screen, and the MODULES portion of the
Hardware Definition screen lists the selected FBMs and FCMs.
5. Change the default letterbug (first four characters), if desired, of each FCM or redundant FCM. (Note that the last two letterbug characters for the FCM must be 00.)
6. Select each FBM and FCM by clicking to the left of each of them. (Note that here,
and in later steps, blue highlighting of the item signifies selected.)
7. Select Attach from the top menu bar, and select To Fieldbus from the drop-down
menu.
8. From the Attach Modules to Fieldbus dialog box:
a. Select the station (for example, CP60) to which you want to assign the FBMs and
FCMs.
b. Select the FBMs and FCMs that you want to assign to the station. (To select a
group of FBMs, hold the Ctrl key and click on the desired FBMs.)
c. Select Attach.
d. Repeat a through c (above) for each station.
e. Select Close.
9. Select Assign from the top menu bar.
10. Select FCM Module from the drop-down menu.

a. Select the FCM to which you want attach FBMs.
b. Select an FBM or group of FBMs that you want to attach to the selected FCM.
(To select a group of FBMs, hold the Ctrl key and click on the desired FBMs.) As
you assign (Step 11c) an FBM or group of FBMs to an FCM, they are assigned
the first four characters of the FCM letterbug, and the last two characters of the
letterbug corresponding to the FBMs position on baseplate. The assigned position in the baseplate is based on the sequence in which you select and Assign the
modules. If you assign a single FBM to an FCM, the FBM is assigned the next
sequential position on the baseplate. If you select a group of FBMs, the sequential
assigned position is the same sequence as the modules appear (top to bottom) in
the dialog box.
c. Select Assign.
d. Repeat for each FCM and/or FBM (a through c above).
e. Select Close.
NOTE

A printout of the FCM information, and the assigned letterbugs positions for each
FBM, may be obtained at this time by selecting File, then Print Preview. This
printed out information may be used as a check, to ensure that the associated FBMs
are installed in baseplate positions that were configured by System Definition.

Integrated Control Configuration


I/A Series provides two utilities for configuring control data bases:
FoxCAE (Computer Aided Engineering for I/A Series Control Processor Databases)
Integrated Control Configurator (ICC).
These utilities allow you to modify existing I/A Series control schemes or create entirely new
applications. FoxCAE has the advantage that it can be used to configure control schemes prior to
installation of the actual equipment. It can be run on virtually any PC having Windows 95 software, and its generated database is easily loaded into the systems control processor 60 (CP60)
once the I/A Series system is installed.
The software interface between the control logic and the process is provided by Equipment Control Blocks (ECBs) specific to the Fieldbus Modules (FBMs), and control blocks used throughout
the I/A Series system. Actual control of the process is performed by compounds, consisting of
control blocks, which you configure. (Figure 6-1 shows a typical application of control blocks.)
The I/A Series system offers a wide range of control blocks, providing solutions for a broad spectrum of process control applications. For details on the selection and usage of control blocks, refer
to Integrated Control Block Descriptions (B0193AX), and to DIN Rail Mounted FBM Control
Schemes on page 247.

NOTE

For more comprehensive information regarding integrated control configuration,


refer to Integrated Control Configurator (B0193AV).
FoxCAE and the ICC, which are accessed through the process engineers environment at an
I/A Series workstation, allow you to configure control blocks relating, in this case, to the DIN rail
mounted FBMs. The general procedure is to create a compound name under which the blocks
will be created and run, and then create and integrate the desired control blocks.

206

6. Configuration Information

B0400FA Rev D

Using the FoxCAE or ICC, you create an Equipment Control Block (ECB) for each FBM in the
DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem. (The ECB serves as a holding place for the devices software data.) You then go on to configure the necessary control blocks and compounds for the
desired control scheme.
The FoxCAE or ICC lets you modify configuration data for on-line stations (for example, a Control Processor 60) or off-line library volumes. (A library volume is a dummy configuration
which may be loaded into the Control Processor (CP) when creation and/or editing are completed.) As a compound/block editor, the FoxCAE or ICC provides compound or block building
templates along with a full range of editing functions.
Control configuration for the DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem is divided into the following
procedures:
Off-Line Control Configuration using FoxCAE on page 209 or Off-Line Control
Configuration using the ICC on page 213 is intended for use when a new system is
being configured typically, when the DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem is being
included in new (overall) system configuration.
On-Line Control Configuration using the ICC on page 218 is intended for use for
when a previous I/A Series configuration is being updated to include the DIN rail
mounted FBM subsystem.
NOTE

As indicated in a note on page 203, if the host I/A Series system is on-line (currently
controlling the process), it may be desirable to perform Control Configuration online, prior to updating the System Definition. If this is the case, perform the procedure under On-Line Control Configuration using the ICC on page 218.
For reference purposes, Table 6-1 lists the DIN rail mounted FBMs, along with associated ECBs
and the number of available I/O points.

Off-Line Control Configuration using FoxCAE


FoxCAE is an off-line control configuration utility that runs on a stand-alone Windows NT
platform or on the same I/A Series server on which the ICC is loaded. Control schemes developed
using FoxCAE are transferred to ICC for downloading to the CP. You can transfer complete control schemes or newly added control compounds from FoxCAE to the CP using ICC. After the
control scheme or control compound(s) are transferred, they are downloaded to the CP using
ICC. The following is a listing of major steps that are performed to accomplish off-line integrated
control configuration using FoxCAE.
NOTE

1. The FBM ECBs, as created in the following procedure, can be placed in the stations <CPLBUG>_ECB compound, or they can be dispersed throughout the various control compounds. Placing them in the <CPLBUG>_ECB compound is
generally more convenient, and provides for convenient switching of the ECBs
on/line and off/line. However, placing the FBM ECBs in the control compounds
(that is, in the same compounds as the I/O blocks which use that ECB to access the
FBM) can sometimes provide improved system performance.
2. If the FBM ECBs are placed in the <CPLBUG>_ECB compound, they should be
arranged as the first blocks in the listing.

Off-Line Control Configuration using the ICC


To perform off-line integrated control configuration using the ICC, refer to Integrated Control
Configurator (B0193AV) for details and proceed as follows.
NOTE

The following procedure assumes that System Definition has been performed. See
System Definition on page 203.
1. Using the System Management displays (accessible at an I/A Series workstation), boot
up the Control Processor (CP) to which the DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem
equipment will be attached. This creates two compounds:
Station compound (CPLBUG_STA)1 containing the station block
(CPLBUG_STA:STATION)1
ECB compound (Cplbug_ECB)1 containing the primary ECB
(CPLBUG_ECB:PRIMARY_ECB)1.
2. Open the Control Configurator and access the control station (CP60) in question.
3. Use the Control Configurators Fix All function to create ECB(s) for the FCMs and
FBMs added previously to the system configuration via System Definition.
4. If required, edit the FCM/FBM ECB(s) if the default parameters provided are not satisfactory. (See Note immediately following this step.) Figure 6-2 shows a typical editing display for the FCM ECB (110), and Figure 6-3 provides definitions of the
configurable ECB110 parameters. Figure 6-4 through Figure 6-7 show typical editing
displays for the FBM201, FBM204, FBM217, and FBM241 ECBs. [For definitions
of the FBM ECB parameters, refer to Integrated Control Block Descriptions
(B0193AX)]. Values for the HWTYPE and SWTYPE ECB parameters for the various
types of DIN rail mounted FBMs are provided in Appendix C DIN Rail Mounted
FBM Control Schemes.
NOTE

For ready reference, ECB parameter information appears in a show window along
the right side of the ECB editing displays (see Figure 6-4 through Figure 6-7). The
show window is accessed by selecting Show in the menu bar, and then selecting
Legal FBM then ECB Combos.

2. Open the Control Configurator and access the control station in question.
3. Using the Control Configurators Insert New Block/ECB function, create an ECB for
each DIN rail mounted FCM and FBM in the subsystem.
4. If required, edit the FCM/FBM ECB(s) if the default parameters provided are not satisfactory (see Figure 6-4 through Figure 6-7 for examples, and also refer to the NOTE
below). The HWTYPE and SWTYPE ECB parameters for the various types of DIN
rail mounted FBMs are shown in Appendix C DIN Rail Mounted FBM Control

B0400FA Rev D

Fail-Safe Operation
Fail-safe parameters in the controlling ECBs specify the outputs of the associated FBM in the
event of a break in communication with the CP. All fail-safe operations are initiated by the FBM,
and all fail-safe parameters are downloaded each time the system is initialized.
Each time the FBM receives a write request, it resets a fail-safe timer for its ECB. The FBM asserts
a fail-safe condition for the ECB if it does not receive another output command within a specified
time. The fail-safe condition can be either of the following:
Hold Current Value Hold the value sent in the most recent output command from
the CP.

Use Fallback Value Use a value specified for the output (specified in the ECB).
The ECBs for the FBMs include parameters for enabling and disabling fail-safe and for setting a
fail-safe delay for the outputs. These parameters are downloaded to the FBMs database from the
CP each time the subsystem is initialized or reconfigured, and each time you execute a download
command from the System Management display. If fail-safe is enabled for a specific output, the
FBM asserts fail-safe actions.
When normal operation resumes, the current output values are read by the CP and stored in the
ECBs. These values in turn are used by the I/O blocks as the starting point for new output
commands.
NOTE

Fail-safe operation for an FBM requires that a process block be connected to the
FBMs ECB.

Fail-Safe Functionality
FBM actions that occur during various failed conditions are dependant upon two things: the configuration of the FBM fail-safe parameters and the type of FBM failure. Two basic types of FBM
failures can occur: Type 1 failures, such as FBM OFF-LINE, FBM DOWNLOAD, or FBM
EEPROM UPDATE, involve an actual FBM failure; Type 2 failures (COMM FAIL), involve a
loss of communications.

Fail-Safe for Type 1 Failures - FBM FAIL


Two variables (parameters), fail-safe mask (FSMM1) and fail-safe data (FSD0n), determine the
action that the FBM takes when a Type 1 failure occurs. FSMM1, configured for a particular output, determines the state that is asserted at the output: Fallback Value, or Hold Current Value.
The default setting of the fail-safe mask parameter is zero, to assert the Fallback Values. The mask
can be set so that some outputs hold while others fall back. FSD0n, also configured for a particular output, determines the fallback value. The default value for analog outputs is zero, and the
default value for digital values is false.

219

B0400FA Rev D

6. Configuration Information

Fail-Safe for Type 2 Failures - COMM FAIL


In addition to the fail-safe mask and fail-safe data parameters, there are two other parameters,
FSENAB and FSDLAY, that affect the FBMs response to communications failures. FSENAB
determines whether the output simply holds (FSENAB = 0) its output value during the
communications failure until the communications failure ceases, or if it delays fail-safe action
(FSENAB = 1) for the time specified by FSDLAY and then responds in the same way as Type 1
failures.

Fail-Safe Examples
The following examples are fail-safe operations for an analog type I/O ECB with two outputs.
The operation is performed for the first output point, which is point number 1. An AOUT block
is used, and the output is driven at a value of 75% of full scale. The Fallback Value is configured
to be 25% of full scale (FSD01 = 16000). FSDLAY is set to 1000, which is equal to a delay time
of 10 seconds.
Example 1: FSENAB = 0 and FSMM1 = 0X00
a. Cause: Type 1 failure.
Result: Output immediately goes to 25%.
b. Cause: Type 2 failure.
Result: Output holds at 75%.
Example 2: FSENAB = 0 and FSMM1 = 0X10
a. Cause: Type 1 failure.
Result: Output holds at 75%.
b. Cause: Type 2 failure.
Result: Output holds at 75%.
Example 3: FSENAB = 1 and FSMM1 = 0X00
a. Cause: Type 1 failure.
Result: Output immediately goes to 25%.
b. Cause: Type 2 failure.
Result: Output holds at 75% for 10 seconds, then goes to 25%.
Example 4: FSENAB = 1 and FSMM1 = 0X10
a. Cause: Type 1 failure.
Result: Output holds at 75%.
b. Cause: Type 2 failure
Result: Output holds at 75% for 10 seconds, then continues to hold at 75%.

FBM205/FBM237 Fail-Safe Parameter Configuration


Proper operation of the redundant FBM205 or FBM237 modules requires that the fail-safe
parameters in the ECBs associated with both FBMs (main and backup) be correctly configured.
In general, the FBM outputs must be configured to fail to a zero value in order to allow the opposite (non-failed) FBM to assume (or continue) control without interference from the failed module. Table 6-2 outlines the fail-safe parameter requirements.

For information on how to set these parameters, refer Fail-Safe Operation on page 219, and also
refer to the following documents:
Integrated Control Software Concepts (B0193AW)
Integrated Control Configurator (B0193AV).

Troubleshooting
As stated above, fail-safe operation for an FBM requires that a process block be connected to the
FBMs ECB. If this requirement is not fulfilled, in some cases an FBMs fail-safe LED will not
return to a steady green when a communication break has been resolved. In this instance, either
the FBM OFF Line/ON Line button must be toggled or the FBM must be downloaded in order
to return the LED to its steady green status.

obtains current and historical information about the system and displays this information in System Management displays. These displays, which reflect the systems current operating status,
provide a valuable maintenance aid by allowing you to observe the current operating status of the
various system elements, intervene in system operations, and perform diagnostics. With regard to
the DIN rail mounted FBM subsystem, the SMDH provides the following displays:
A Fieldbus level display (PIO Network), which shows the control station (control processor), FCM(s), and any other Fieldbus devices
A module Fieldbus level display (PIO SUB NETWORK ), which shows the selected
FCM and associated FBMs

Detailed equipment change (EQUIP CHG) and equipment information (EQUIP INFO)
displays for each FBM.

FBM205 Redundant Power Supply Test (Internally


Powered Transmitter)
NOTE

This status check pertains to redundant FBM205 inputs that are powered from the
FBM. It does not pertain to externally powered inputs.
The purpose of the following test is to validate operation of the per channel power supply for each
module in the FBM205 module pair. The test should be performed periodically. (The more often
the test is performed, the higher the reliability.)
The power supplies of each input channel of a redundant pair are diode ORd on the redundant
adapter associated with the input pair. Test points are provided on the redundant adapter to measure loop power for each channel.
The FBM205 redundant adapter is shown in Figure 8-6. Along the bottom of the redundant
adapter are test point commons [Input (-)] for each channel. Along the top and right side are positive test points [Input (P)] for each channel. [Two test points are provided for each channel, one
for the left FBM05 module (1), and one for the right FBM05 module (2)].

8. Maintenance

B0400FA Rev D

To perform the status check, refer to Figure 8-6 and proceed as follows:
1. Place the negative probe of a voltmeter at test point common 01 [Input (-)], and test
the loop power (voltage) for channel 01, modules 1 and 2 [at Input (P) 01]. Both
readings should be 24 V dc 5%. A reading significantly below spec indicates a defective module (defective loop power).
2. Repeat Step 1 for the remaining three channels (02, 03, and 04), using the respective
common points and loop power test points.

fail-safe mode. (Refer to Fail-Safe Operation on page 219 for details.)

*Either LED, when in the OFF condition, appears clear (colorless).

In addition to the status LEDs, discrete input/output FBMs (such as the FBM207) include amber
LEDs which indicate the status of the associated I/O signal to/from the field device (such as a
relay). For input signals, the LED is on when an input voltage is present or the contact is closed.
For output signals, the LED is on when the FBM is supplying on-state current to the field device.

NOTE:
1. This is an 8 channel FBM. It may be configured with any combination of ECB18 or
ECB74. Communication with the transmitter or positioner is bidirectional. ECB18
supports transmitters and the measurement and diagnostic data flow is unidirectional.
ECB74 supports positioners and the control and diagnostic data flow is bidirectional.
2. The FBM246, ECB38R combination is functionally a redundant ECB73. Used in this way,
an ECB38R does not support directly connected I/O blocks. Used with an FBM246, the
ECB38R supports only ECB18 and ECB74. Configure ECB18s or ECB74s as if they
were being attached to an ECB73.
3. This is not the same as the typical FBM46 configuration that uses AINR and AOUTR
blocks connected directly to the ECB38R. In the FBM46 configuration, the ECB38R
behaves as a redundant ECB23 that supports four FoxCom transmitters and four
4-20 mA analog outputs.
ECB Parameters*
HWTYPE = 246, SWTYPE = 73
