Monitoring drives safely
The control systems PSSuniversal PLC and PSSuniversal multi can now be used for advanced motion monitoring functions. A new compact I/O module (PSSu K F EI) with local fast shutdown is available for this purpose. You benefit from reduced reaction times and higher productivity.
Your benefits at a glance
- Fast reaction times and high productivity due to the fast shutdown of drives, irrespective of the PLC cycle time
- Speed functions are conveniently set-up in the software
- Application can be adapted with precision, simply by changing the threshold values (e.g. limit speed) in the user program
- Simple commissioning and time savings during operation due to simple diagnostics of the set parameters
- Costs can be saved through the use of existing encoder systems, possible connection to all common rotary encoders/feedback systems (sin/cos, TTL, HTL, proximity switches)
Motion monitoring functions to monitor your drives:
- Implementation of safety functions in accordance with EN 61800-5-2:
- up to PL d with only one Sin/Cos rotary encoder
- up to PL e with a safe rotary encoder
- up to PL e with a combination of rotary encoder and proximity switch, with additional gear monitoring
- Safe Speed Range: SSR
- Safe Speed Monitoring: SSM
- Safe Direction: SDI
- Safe Operating Stop: SOS
With Pilz automation solutions you can monitor your drives safely and efficiently.
