AS-Interface Safety at Work

Safety controllers SmartSPS

Two integrated PLCs (1 x fail-safe, 1 x standard), powerful processors, a large memory and a multitude of supported protocols allow the control of sophisticated systems – and this at an unbeatable price!
Type
housing for rail mounting
Number of output circuits
2x 2 local and 30 safe AS-i outputs
Inputs / outputs
4 safe local inputs (two-channel) and 4 safe local semiconductor outputs
Fieldbus interface

Safety monitors

The safety monitors feature one or two independent output signal switching devices. The function can be freely configured via the ASIMON software. The safe AS-i inputs can be freely combined to groups. Several safety monitors can be operated in one AS-i network.

Software

The ASIMON programming software is used for programming and parameter-setting of the safety monitors. After completion, it creates an approval report, which is part of the plant documentation.

Accessories

Programming cables for the connection of the PC and the safety monitor are available as accessories.
 
Jumper cables
 

SmartLine

Safe AS-i input modules can be used in control cabinets or local boxes for the connection of conventional safe sensors, e.g. e-stop or door switches. All status indications are provided via the LEDs on the front panel.

Fail-safe inductive sensors

Fail-safe inductive sensors replace electromechanical switches on doors and protective devices. The TÜV approved sensors require no special counterpart but switch on metals such as stainless steel or mild steel.
Thus, they function without contact, are wear-free and self-monitoring and guarantee high uptime of the installation.

Safe AS-i door switches with guard locking

The new safe AS-i door switches with guard locking have the function to keep moving protective equipment such as protective grating, protective guard and other covers closed as long as a dangerous state is present. The safe AS-i door switches are safety switches with separate actuators and guard locking which allow the user to implement interlocking devices according to EN 1088.
