The Allen-Bradley 843ES CIP Safety over EtherNet/IP absolute encoders can meet the needs of safety applications that require speed, direction or position-monitoring functions. The encoders are capable of up to and including SIL 3/PLe safety applications. They can achieve this performance when used as part of an integrated safety system that includes an Allen-Bradley GuardLogix 5580 controller or Compact GuardLogix 5380 controller. In addition, by integrating safety with standard control systems, operators gain access to all machine events, including safety events, to shorten response times. Auxiliary feedback through an EtherNet/IP network on CIP Safety delivers the desired safety integrity and performance with fewer necessary components.
