In-Series Diagnostics (ISD) makes it easy to access diagnostic data from devices in a safety system without special equipment or designated cabling. Users can troubleshoot machine safety systems, prevent system faults, and reduce equipment downtime.
This innovative, next generation technology is exclusive to safety devices from Banner Engineering, including SC10 Series safety controllers, SI-RF Series RFID safety switches, the ISD Connect, and E-Stop buttons. ISD compatible devices achieve the highest levels of safety (Category 4, PL e, or SIL CL 3 safety ratings).
In-Series Diagnostics gives machine owners and operators greater insight into the health and performance of their equipment, making them less reliant on outside experts to solve system problems. Users can monitor the status of each device in their safety system in real-time, identify the location and nature of any potential problems, and receive alerts if a critical event does occur, so equipment can get back up and running as soon as possible.
The technology that makes In-Series Diagnostics possible is embedded in the safety devices and communicated using the same cables, connectors, adaptors, and inputs that connect the devices to the safety controller. This eliminates the time, hassle, and expense of running designated cabling between each device and the control panel in order to access diagnostic data. Users can add, move, or remove safety devices as needed and then easily error-proof the entire safety system prior to deployment.
Data is collected from up to 32 compatible devices in each In-Series Diagnostic chain. Using an HMI or similar device, users can view the status and location of each device and drill into the data to determine the unique tag value, internal temperature, voltage, and other device-level details. System alerts notify staff if a monitored door has been opened, an E-Stop button pressed, or any other critical event has occurred.
ISD to IO-Link Modules are compact devices that transmit In-Series Diagnostics (ISD) data over IO-Link.
Flush mount e-stop available in four models: standard actuator, illuminated standard actuator, lockable actuator, and illuminated lockable actuator.
Illuminated button for easy identification of which e-stop has been activated. 30 mm mounting base for easy installation and hookup with no assembly.
Replaces the functionality of two safety relay modules with one compact, cost-effective device. Supports up to 14 inputs and 2 dual channel relay outputs with six amps each.
SI-RF Series safety switches utilize RFID technology to monitor doors, gates, and other mechanical safeguards. They will send a signal to the machine control system to prevent or stop hazardous situations when the guard is not in the proper position.
