Banner Engineering Safety controllers with Profinet communication
Profinet communication has been added to the SC26-2 and XS26-2 safety controllers. The configurable SC26-2 safety controller is used to monitor multiple safety and nonsafety input devices, providing safe stop and start functions for machines with hazardous motion. The XS26-2 is a scalable version of the SC26-2. It can support up to eight expansion I/O modules. The addition of the Profinet industrial protocol to these safety controllers enables simple and robust communication channels to any connected devices that use the Profinet standard, including devices from other manufacturers. This new functionality matches the capabilities available for EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP or PCCC.
