New solution designed with maximum functionality in mind
The 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.” says the company “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 single contact terminal also fulfils CAT. 4 (EN954-1) requirements. The range also offers universal I/O, which is configured on samos PLAN.”
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, adds Wieland Electric. “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.”
samos PRO variants offer enhanced functionality, including certified function blocks for the safe automation of mechanical or hydraulic presses with support for Multiple Fieldbus Protocols. The modules offer six control function blocks to monitor press contacts, ensuring proper signal sequencing and timing during press operation, while controlling press operation during setup, single-stroke, automatic and cyclic modes.
Safety functions control
“Modules are designed to control the safety functions of a wide variety of industrial applications and are compatible 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.”
