Scalable Safety Control for Large Assembly Processes
Safeguarding semi-automated assembly lines having multiple hazards can be cumbersome with traditional safety relay modules designed to perform singular functions (two-hand control, muting, gate monitoring and more).
With multiple zones and dozens of safety devices needed to safeguard larger assembly processes, wiring can become complex, resulting in high costs and long installation times to create the appropriate safety logic and circuits. A simple safety solution is needed to ensure safety logic and circuits help safeguard hazards and protect personnel.
Banner’s XS26-2 expandable safety controller is a scalable safety solution that can be tailored for a wide variety of machines, including large scale machines with multiple processes.
With the ability to add up to eight I/O expansion modules, the XS26-2 has the capacity to adapt to larger footprint machines with multiple hazards and access points. Several preconfigured safety function and logic blocks are available in the intuitive programming software.
A broad spectrum of safety devices are supported, allowing for complex applications to be configured and downloaded to the controller in a minimal amount of time for efficient machine commissioning. With an easy-to-use software platform, users can immediately connect safety devices to the controller.
