Integrated safety for both people and machines
Communicative systems such as u-remote form part of the future in factory automation. For safety, this means that even after triggering an emergency stop, it is still possible to call up the system’s current status – regardless of how big the safety application is.
With u-remote, a reliable machine shutdown is guaranteed while keeping the sensors active. And after maintenance, you can restart system operation immediately.
With u-remote you can implement both distributed as well as discrete safety solutions into your I/O system.
Integrated safety without a safety control
Solutions with safe power-feed modules
Implement safety solutions by connecting them to the control. All you have to do is simply position them directly upstream of the corresponding standard output modules. And that’s without the need for costly safety PLCs featuring appropriate outputs or the additional use of safety relays. By safely shutting down the output current path, you switch off actuators selectively and, at the same time, keep the sensors fully active. You can therefore send the machine status to the control at any time, and it quickly takes over the restart operation once the problem has been rectified.
Safely control complex systems using modernfieldbus technology
Solutions with safe I/O modules
Think and work in a networked fashion. Use u-remote to connect distributed safety equipment to form a fully cooperating safety system, which is monitored using a centralised safety control. The safe u-remote input and output modules can be ideally integrated in decentralised architectures to selectively switch off parts of the production as required.
