Intrinsically Safe BasePlate (ISBP)

Tailored for success: the ISBP termination board for Yokogawa’s CENTUM® VP and ProSafe®-RS

Automated detection of the IS barriers, optimal use of cabinet space, and software marshaling:
all this is available with Pepperl+Fuchs’ Intrinsically Safe Base Plate (ISBP). The ISBP is a tailored
termination board
for Yokogawa’s new N-IO devices for the CENTUM VP integrated production
control system and ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system (SIS).


Benefits for Yokogawa users

  • ISBP with field terminals can be mounted and prewired in the cabinet without an intrinsic safety module being installed and before the signal type for a specific channel has been established.
  • Intrinsic safety barriers are automatically detected by the N-IO via an integrated Barrier ID.
  • The ISBP is the same height as the standard Yokogawa N-IO Base Plate to enable a standard cabinet design and layout and maximize cabinet spacing.
  • Backplane design enables 20% higher cabinet density – up to 6 ISBPs per row compared to 5 with other solutions.

The product selection tool below for Yokogawa's CENTUM VP and ProSafe-RS N-IO offers you an easy way of selecting the H-System isolated barriers (HiC and HiD) suitable for your ISBP application. As a result of the search, you will receive an overview of the products which meet your search criteria.

The ISBP will be supplied by Yokogawa without the intrinsically safe barriers.
