Wieland Electric Safety control module with multiple fieldbus protocols
Six industrial press function control blocks have been added to the samosPro Compact-Plus family of programmable safety controllers to monitor press contacts, ensuring proper signal sequencing and timing during press operation, and to control press operation during setup, single-stroke, automatic and cyclic modes. Integrated support for both EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT fieldbus communication protocols is included. The expanded capabilities allow machine design engineers to integrate peripheral devices into the automation network and to relay control information back to these devices using one of several industrial communications protocols. The 45-mm-wide base modules are compatible with Wieland’s samosPlan5+ programming software, which provides an intuitive interface, simulation tools and troubleshooting and reporting functions.
