Nov. 24, 2014 – The Wieland Electric samosPro programmable safety controller is now capable of switching up to 4 amps, providing a higher output current rating.
Promising to provide maximum machine uptime, the controller is designed to only switch off power outputs from the locally affected module, says the company, while maintaining power to other modules of the safety system. This enables machine operators and technicians to troubleshoot the problem circuit without interrupting other elements of the system, it adds. The modular configuration can start with eight inputs and four outputs and be scaled to 384 inputs and 192 outputs. The 22.5-mm wide DIN rail mounted module is rated for 24Vdc input power (nominal), and is available with either screw clamp or cage clamp pluggable terminals. The free programming software, samosPlan, offers simulation tools, and troubleshooting and reporting functions.
