Reduction in wiring of safety inputs using of AS-i is nothing new, but so far it has not catered for safe outputs. This has now been set to rights with the launch of the SmartLine AC030S from AS-i founders IFM Electronic. The panel-mount AC030S conforms to all relevant safety standards, from the current and familiar EN954-1 Category 4, to its replacement ISO13849-1 Performance Level e, and of course IEC61508, SIL3.

AC030S features one positively driven safe relay output with dual contacts capable of switching 3A, but also has four non-safe inputs for standard devices. The font panel features five LEDs for indication of input or output status, operation, faults and alarms.

As a prerequisite the updated Safety Controller (AC031S single channel or AC032S dual channel) must be used, as the earlier versions were not designed to configure outputs; using the new ASIMON V3.0 the Controller will allow the new AC030S output device to be incorporated into the safe part of the AS-i network with ease.

IFM is committed to working closely with its customers to develop products which precisely match their needs, and the company provides expert, readily accessible technical support to help users maximise the benefits they gain from IFM products.
