Pepperl+Fuchs recently introduced the VAS-2A8L-KE4-8SE , a compact and flexible stand-alone programmable safety controller. The safety controller provides four redundant safe inputs and two independent safe electronic outputs.  It runs on standard 24 VDC and allows any safe device with dry contacts or electronic safe outputs to be used. Connecting safety devices to the safety controller is designed to be as simple as wiring a conventional safety relay.  It features removable terminals and a drag-and-drop application interface. When the configuration is downloaded into the safety controller, documentation is automatically created, and all necessary data is backed up on a memory card.
