Wieland Electric has produced a short video that demonstrates the benefits of its samos PRO COMPACT-PLUS configurable safety controller that incorporates safe motion control.
A notable feature of the samos PRO COMPACT is that safe motion control is incorporated within the base unit of the controller; compared with other options, this can save the need for up to 25 speed monitoring modules. However, the samos PRO COMPACT-PLUS integrates even more safe motion control within the base unit.
The safe motion control functions are fully configurable and include the following:
- Standstill monitoring
- Safe direction (SDI)
- Safe speed range (SSR)
- Safe limited speed (SLS)
- Safe speed monitoring (SSM)
- Safe limited position (SLP)
Furthermore, the high-speed inputs can operate at up to 70kHz, a maximum of four axes can be monitored by a single base unit (PLc), and performance level PLe can be achieved when using safe HTL encoders.
To ease integration within machines, the samos PRO COMPACT-PLUS also features Industrial Ethernet communications.
