Safety Programmable Controller
Our safety PLC systems bring the benefits of traditional PLC systems to complex safety applications, replacing the hard-wired relay systems typically required to bring automated processes to a safe state. Safety PLCs allow standard and safety-related programming to reside in a single controller frame, providing flexibility in programming and a familiar, easy-to-use environment for programmers. Our safety controller solutions provide open, integrated controls that will help ensure machine safety and protect your current control investments. Contains the following products:
1. SmartGuard 600 Safety Controller with Safety Features
Bulletin 1752 SmartGuard™ 600 Safety Controllers feature 16 scaled safety inputs, 8 scaled safety outputs, 4 pulse test sources, and an optional EtherNet/IP™ port. Each controller also includes a DeviceNet™ connection to support standard CIP and CIP Safety. You can configure and program over EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, or via the built-in USB port. These affordable, small smart controllers can perform safety interlocks between GuardLogix® or other SmartGuard safety controllers.
2. ControlLogix 5570 Controller
Bulletin 5570 ControlLogix® 5570 controllers can be used in standard, safety and extreme temperature environments, with On-Machine models for process, motion, discrete and high availability applications. As part of the Integrated Architecture™ system, these controllers use Studio 5000 Automation Engineering & Design Environment™ and common network protocols. These high-performance controllers provide a common control engine with a common development environment for all control domains.
3. 1768 CompactLogix Controller
Bulletin 1768 CompactLogix™ and Compact GuardLogix® controllers are ideal for small to mid-sized applications requiring safety functions, motion control, and/or complex communications. These controllers offer integrated serial, EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™ channels and modular DeviceNet™ communications. They support up to 30 I/O modules and up to 16 axes of motion.
