The Safety Fieldbox for PROFIsafe/PROFINET systems is suitable for simple plug and play installation of up to eight safety switchgear devices. All common types of safety switchgear can be connected via the 8-pole M12 device connector: switches, sensors, interlocks, light grids and also control panels. This solution is also suitable for larger machines and plants, because up to 10 safety field boxes with up to 80 safety switchgear can be easily connected in series.
The serial diagnostics field includes safety switchgear, system components and installation accessories for safety interlocks, safety sensors and operating panels with SD interface.The SD interface allows comprehensive diagnostic data (switch states such as 'door open/closed' or error messages such as 'actuator in limit area' or 'excess temperature') from series connected safety switchgear to be transmitted to superior machine control systems. The data is transmitted via an SD gateway with industrial fieldbus protocols (PROFIBUS, CANopen, PROFINET IO, EtherNet IP, Modbus/TCP, EtherCAT).The SD interface also allows safety interlocks to be locked and unlocked individually, as well as configured. As such, the latching force of the MZM100-SD electromagnetic solenoid interlock can be set by SD interface.Benefits of the SD interfaceComprehensive status and diagnostic dataSimplified troubleshootingAvoidance of unscheduled machine downtimes thanks to faster error alertsPerformance Level PL e despite series connection of safety switchgearSaving on secure inputs by creating switch-off circuitsSupport for different fieldbus systemsSmooth and fail-safe installation
