E-T-A Introduces the SVS16 ProfiBus Power Distribution System

Intelligent sub-system for power distribution of the Process & Control layer of any automation architecture

For Immediate Release

Mt. Prospect, IL: E-T-A Circuit Breakers is pleased to announce the new SVS16-PB-08 ProfiBus power distribution and remote output system.  The SVS16 provides selective over current protection, power distribution to load circuits as well as switching, protection and monitoring of digital outputs to field devices up to 10 A.

The integration of OpenCan technology enables communication of operating and error conditions, as well as switching and resetting of individual circuits of 24 VDC loads.  Profibus-DP makes the SVS16 an intelligent sub-system for power distribution integrated directly to the Process & Control layer of any automation architecture.


The Din Rail mounted SVS16-PB-08 accommodates eight electronic circuit protectors, either the ESX10-125 (with reset input) or ESX10-115 (with control input). Both devices provide selective over current protection of sensors/actuators, peripheral sub-assemblies, etc. and its supply lines. The SVS16 can also be populated with E-T-A solid state power relays (E-1048) to monitor and control hydraulic or pneumatic solenoids, and provides open wire detection, short circuit, and overload protection of field output loads, ranging from 0.5 amps to 5 amps.  The SVS16 has a Profibus-DP interface supporting all specified baud rates up to max. 12 MBaud.


The SVS16 reduces wiring times and increases diagnostic capabilities for applications in the Petrochemical, Power & Energy and Pharmaceutical industries.


E-T-A’s SVS16 power distribution system, ESX10 circuit breakers and E-1048 solid state power relays are available with standard lead times.  For more information on the SVS16 power distribution system or any other E-T-A’s products dial 1-800-462-9979 or click here.
