SIL3; OSSD outputs; wire breakage and short-circuit detection
Safety technology is of central importance in industrial automation and machine building. If you want to reduce risks and avoid dangers for people and environment, you need solutions which satisfy stringent requirements and statutory specifications. The safety modules of the u-remote system have key features such as emergency-stop circuits and wire-breakage or short-circuit detection. They meet all SIL 3 requirements according to IEC 62061 and EN ISO 13849-1, category 4, PL e, and support the safe operation of your system.
By safely shutting down the downstream output modules, the safety modules attain maximum safety with optimum control. All input sensors are independently supplied via separate voltage paths and report the current machine status to the control unit. Restarting is either carried out in manual mode or using the autostart function. In addition, Weidmüller safety modules reduce maintenance and service times and improve response times in case of emergency – thanks to a concept of maximum transparency, e.g. using OSSD outputs.
The module electronics supply the connected actuators from the output current path (UOUT).
