Weidmuller (Richmond, VA) announces the release of the newest addition to their award-winning u-remote distributed I/O module line-up – the u-remote Safe Power-feed Modules. Unique to the market today, the new UR20-PF-O safe power-feed modules feature:
- Integrated functionality to safely switch off power to all modules that are within a safety segment, eliminating the need for a safety controller.
- Stringent machine safety standards that include SIL 3 CL and Category 4 PL e, and can help increase efficiency and reduce wiring costs in applications by eliminating costly home run wiring while providing immediate feedback on the status of the safety circuit.
- The ability to safely switch off the power to all output modules when supplied from the safe power-feed slice. This function creates a “safety segment” that is managed locally by the UR20-PF-O safe power-feed module. The safety rated input works together with pulsed inputs to detect broken wires and short circuits. These safe power-feed modules go beyond standard safety relays by providing real-time feedback on which safety circuit is down. Since this functionality is built into the modules, there is no need for expensive safety controllers and complex safety programs.
Available in 1 input, 2 inputs, or 2 inputs with delay, the UR20-PF-O safe power-feed modules can offer cost savings for a wide range of safety-related equipment.
