Safety-M Compact Series Safety Modules



Kübler announced its Safety-M compact series safety module for speed monitoring where space is limited. The removable operating and diagnostic display stands for easy parameterizing. The safe inputs and outputs and the integrated signal splitter allow its integration in existing safety circuits.

The Safety-M compact series safety module provides a cost-effective means for retrofitting older machines to they meet Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC requirements.

The integrated signal splitter for the encoder signals saves expensive and complex external wiring. Moreover, the easy forwarding to a control system or frequency converter is ensured.

The safety module firmware integrates comprehensive speed and position-related safety functions for drive monitoring according to EN 61800-5-2 (e.g. SS1, SS2, SOS, SLS, SDI, SSM). The extensive diagnostic function integrated in the firmware allows achieving, with a certified encoder, the safety level SIL3/PLe.

The encoder interface supports SinCos, TTL / RS422 and HTL / push-pull and proximity switches. Up to two safe encoder connections can be achieved per axis.

4/2 safe inputs and 8/4 safe shut-off channels are available. The analog output ranges from 4 … 20mA and provides a fast internal speed signal conversion.

There is also a removable OLED touch screen with plain text display offered as an accessory. It allows performing local diagnostics and parameterizing without PC software. The status LED on the front side indicates the operating status of the module.

Contact multiplication or contact reinforcement by means of external contactors combined with integrated cross short-cut monitoring (EDM) is possible. The device is easy to mount on a 35 mm C profile rail.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
