New 32-Channel HART Multiplexer Simplifies Operation,
ncreases Reliability, Reduces Power Consumption



TWINSBURG, OH – Pepperl+Fuchs introduces the MUX2700G HART Multiplexer. The MUX2700G provides 32 single channels for connection to “smart” transmitters or control devices, while supporting HART standard digital communication. They are fully compatible at the interface level with all previous MUX2700 versions, and function at RS-485 communication speed, with standard operation at up to 38.4 Kb/sec.

Additional features include:

  • Fully redesigned processor board with single-chip microprocessor
    Benefit: More memory for future expansion; Fewer components for higher reliability, reduced power consumption

  • Redesigned firmware
    Benefit: Better performance, consistent behavior in all operating conditions; Simplified firmware upgrades

  • Firmware download capability
    Benefit: 20 second downloads via normal RS-485 line without having to remove unit from the termination board

These multiplexers offer channel-to-channel isolation and eliminate complicated master/slave configurations. They serve as a gateway between the workstation and field instrumentation by interrogating each field device under workstation supervision, and storing the information in its internal database for quick, easy access.

Pepperl+Fuchs is the global leader in intrinsic safety interfaces, fieldbus and HART solutions, remote I/O and AS-Interface, and purge/pressurization systems. Their solutions are employed in a variety of industries, including chemical, pharmaceutical, refining, wastewater management, automotive production, and printing processes, among others.
