Programmable Safety Controller
Extend, configure and simulate with ease
In addition to the MSI 100 stand-alone Safety Controller, Leuze electronic is now launching its "big brother" – the extendable MSI 200 programmable Safety Controller.
The MSI 200 makes it possible for the user to connect not only a PROFIBUS fieldbus module but also up to 10 safe I/O extension modules, thereby extending the number of channels to up to 140 safe inputs or 100 inputs and 44 outputs. This allows complex tasks to be solved with this compact Safety Controller (with a width of only 67.5 mm), since a large number of safety components can be easily connected and monitored in automated production lines or robot cells, e.g. Light Barriers, Safety Switches, Magnetically Coded Sensors and the like.
The safety circuits are quickly and easily configured with the MSIsafesoft software via the integration of PLCopen-certified function blocks using drag & drop functionality. In addition, this reduces wiring expenditure and minimizes sources of faults. The integration of new protective devices or safety components can be done quickly and reliably at any time. An integrated simulation mode and the automatic logic testing gives the user the chance to perform a complete check of the configuration before start-up.
