Compact modular safety controller from Wieland Electric

Designed with maximum functionality in mind, samos PRO from Wieland Electric is a compact modular safety controller for machine and automation control.

Part of the samos range of safety systems, it has multi-functional base modules that are modularly interlinked, extending its safety functions module by module.

The compact design of samos PRO means it offers the highest possible degree of flexibility, consisting of function modules of only 22.5mm wide and programmable safety solutions from a width of 45mm. These modules can be easily plugged together and are available as input/output, input or relay output units, plus analogue and fieldbus gateways in conjunction with the controller. A standalone terminal can fulfil Pl e EN13849-1 requirements. The range also offers universal I/O which is configured on samos PLAN free Software.

Up to 96 safe inputs and 48 safe outputs can be achieved through samos PRO and the system can easily be integrated via gateways to Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet Networks to allow remote monitoring, diagnostics and reporting. Interchangeable memory modules minimise downtime and the simple wiring system of samos PRO COMPACT reduces installation time to a minimum, whilst providing a cost effective solution.

The samos PRO Compact offers enhanced functionality, by utilising TUV certified function blocks for the safe automation and configuration of mechanical or hydraulic presses with additional support and flexibility of multiple fieldbus protocols – including ModBus, TCP/IP, Ethernet/IP and Profinet). The Modules offer six control function blocks to monitor press contacts, ensuring proper signal sequencing and timing during press operation, whilst controlling press operation during setup, single-stroke, automatic, and cyclic modes.

Modules are designed to control the safety functions of a wide variety of industrial applications, and are configured with Wieland Electric’s free samos PLAN6 programming software, which provides design engineers with a simple and intuitive interface, powerful simulation tools and effective troubleshooting and ensures compliant machine documentation with a customised report which will assist in meeting EN13849-2.
