As manufacturing machines become more complex they often require more safety devices, which means builders must choose between individually wiring each device, connecting them in a series which can potentially mask faults, or leaving gaps in the safety system that can put workers at risk.
But not anymore.
Save costs, gain insight, and receive warnings before faults can occur with In-Series Diagnostics, the next generation of intuitive safety devices from Banner Engineering.
In-Series Diagnostics, or ISD, is a communication protocol exclusive to Banner safety.
In-Series Diagnostics allows you to connect up to thirty-two devices with one in-series connection to any PLC or Banner-built safety controller.
When a Safety Event occurs the system receives an alert that includes information about which safety device tripped, making troubleshooting a breeze.
In-Series Diagnostics provides an array of additional data points for each In-Series Device used, including a unique tag value, internal temperature, voltage, and more, along with device-specific details such as the alignment and distance between a safety switch’s sensor and actuator.
Additionally, the system sends warning alarms if devices are near to tripping, so that issues can be addressed before your machine shuts down.
Save cost, simplify installation and troubleshooting, and reduce downtime with In-Series Diagnostics from Banner Engineering.
