Safety relay modules
03 December 2015
The Schmersal Group presented a new family of safety relay modules with eight basic versions at the SPS IPC Drives trade fair, which took place on 24 to 26 November 2015 in Nuremberg.
All equipment versions can be employed in applications up to cat. 4 / PL e according to EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL 3 according to EN 62061 / IEC 61508.
A key advantage of the new PROTECT SRB-E range is that, with each basic version, several dozen existing safety relay modules can be replaced thanks to the multi-functionality of PROTECT SRB-E. Each module can be configured for up to eleven different applications via a simple control element. All conventional safety sensors and electromechanical safety equipment can be monitored.
The reduced number of versions and a clear overview of the eight versions with their relevant functions is said to make it considerably easier for the machine manufacturer to select the right module for its particular application.
