Universal supply module for hand-held scanner BCS 3600ex series for Zone 2/22 and Div. 2
The Bartec universal supply module is designed for an intrinsically safe supply (barrier) and contains a safety barrier (evaluation barrier) for data lines in a potentially explosive atmosphere.
The data lines can be connected directly in the potentially explosive atmosphere to non-Ex systems, for example PCs, PLCs or microprocessors.
The data interface to be used can be set using dip switches. These adjustment possibilities make it easier for an existing old system to subsequently be converted and modified.
