Solutions for distributed safety applications
In machinery and factory automation, the most important goals include safe operation and the minimisation of downtimes. As a result, the ability to obtain exact status analyses and to quickly get production facilities back up and running after faults and servicing work is becoming increasingly important.
With u-remote, you never lose sight of your machine’s current system status. 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. This allows reliable diagnostic operations to be performed and production facilities to be restarted sooner. During this process, the safe input and output modules for PROFIsafe and Fail Safe over EtherCAT (FSoE) can be used to selectively switch off parts of the production as required.
Network your decentralised safety equipment with u-remote to create an integrally cooperating safety system. In this way, you’re not only protecting your investments but also providing safety for your employees and increasing your factories added value.
Maximum machine performance – safety guaranteed!
u-remote for integrated protection and diagnostics in an ultra-compact format
In modular systems, safety protocols such as PROFIsafe and FSoE guarantee that machines are switched to a safe state. Incorporate the safe digital I/O modules into your standard u-remote station as part of a space-saving solution and let them communicate with your machine’s safety control. This allows you to significantly reduce the time and effort needed to design and implement your safety concept.
Safer and smaller, with improved flexibility and efficiency
u-remote 4DI-4DO modules incorporate several safety functions in a single component that measures just 11.5 mm wide. This minimises your safety architecture and eliminates the need to purchase multiple special modules. The high level of parameterisation reduces the number of module variants and speeds up your selection process.
A wide variety of variants thanks to parameterisation
u-remote safe I/O modules are easy to parameterise in terms of their specific functions. This makes it easier for you to select the perfect product, speeds up your engineering processes and cuts the amount of capital tied up in stock.
Faster installation and a reduction in the number of errors
You can use pre-assembled cables, even when connecting the safe u-remote modules. This speeds up the installation process, makes system handling easier and minimises the number of errors needing to be corrected during the commissioning stage.
Safety guaranteed thanks to the ability to run diagnostics directly on the module
Diagnosing faults has never been easier! With an LED on every channel and status indicators on the modules, you can immediately localise cabling errors or even cable breaks. The diagnostics function is an indispensable benefit for safe system commissioning and rapid machine maintenance.
Safety monitoring with the u-remote web server
Keep the status of your system’s safe I/O modules in your sights at all times and across all platforms – without compromising your system’s safety integrity.
