With signal effect: AS-i module for OSSD inputs

Safe AS-i input module especially for light guard applications

  • Optimised M12 socket connection for light guard applications
  • Muting lamp can be controlled by PLC
  • Precise and flexible quick mounting
  • Supply of the light guards from AS-i
  • High safety due to certification to EN 62061/SIL3 and EN ISO 13849-1/ PL e

Module for light grids
Using this new, safe input module, light guards and other safety-related sensors with electronic OSSD out-puts can be connected to AS-i Safety at Work.

Control muting lamp
The integrated outputs ensure the connection of two signal lamps.

Quick mounting without tools
The tried-and-tested quick mounting avoids wiring faults. There is one M12 connecting socket each for the transmitter, the receiver and the two signal outputs.

Two alternatives for the voltage supply
Depending on the design, the light guard and the signal lamps can be completely supplied via AS-i or an external auxiliary voltage.

Advantages and customer’s benefits
Fail-safe sensors with a current consumption below 200 mA can be operated on AC507S without auxiliary voltage. Connection is only made via the yellow AS-i flat cable.

AS-i quick connection
The quick-connection technology provides a high degree of installation reliability and flexibility. The AS-i flat cable can be connected from three different directions.

Diagnosis on site
The LEDs indicate the status of the inputs and outputs and the communication.

Safety
The module meets the requirements up to SIL3 according to EN 62061 and PL e to EN 13849-1. In the event of a fault, the integrated communication monitoring switches the signal outputs off.

Applications
The module is designed for the connection of electro-sensitive protective equipment (ESPE) with electronic outputs to EN 61496-1. It is particularly suited for the connection of safe inductive sensors such as GM705S. Pulse pick-ups for the display of muting functions can be connected via M12 sockets.
