Cyber Security - Industrial network security provides protection against the dangers posed by increased networking

As the world is tapping into the new era of Cyber Security, Phoenix Contact showcased industrial firewalls and solutions for secure remote maintenance and security infrastructure for safeguarding industrial systems against cyber-attacks and viruses.


The protective circuit against surge voltages Moreover, Phoenix Contact shed light on surge protection and the latest devices that help protect against transient and high-energy voltage peaks.

An “effective protective circuit” helps to implement seamless surge protection.

And this is how it works:

Draw an imaginary circle around the object you want to protect.

Surge protective devices must be installed at all points where cables intersect this circle. The area within the protective circuit is therefore protected in such a way that conducted surge voltages are prevented.

Consider the following areas during planning:

  • Power supply
  • Measurement and control technology
  • Data processing, telecommunications
  • Transceiver devices
