FF-844 – cable design

Foundation Fieldbus Cables registered / 100 Ohm / FF-844 Fieldbus Foundation H1

With the Foundation Fieldbus, the "host device" only monitors the procedures. Within process automation, the FF forms a so-called LAN (Local Areas Network) and the FF devices are connected to H1 links. Several H1 links are connected to the high-performance network HSE High-Speed-Ethernet via linking devices.
