The NX Safety Controller is a powerful and robust Stand Alone Safety System that reaches the PLe according to EN 13849-1 and SIL3 according to IEC 61508.
The EtherNet/IP coupler unit allows for connection to almost any PLC via EtherNet/IP™ or standard Ethernet communications.
In addition, the flexible hardware allows the NX safety I/O units to be mixed in any combination with standard NX I/O units.
Sysmac Studio software allows for configuration, programming, simulation and monitoring functionality.
The system allows up to 63 safety/standard I/O units per coupler; up to 32 safety I/O units to a maximum of 256 safety I/O signals. Therefore, you can configure systems with the right combination of I/O to optimize cost.
The EtherNet/IP coupler unit enables connections with various EtherNet/IP and standard Ethernet devices. Therefore, you can monitor safety status and control standard I/O via the connected PLC.
You can freely distribute the NX Safety I/O Units in the I/O rack throughout the network, mixing them in any combination with standard NX I/O Units.
The detachable terminal block of the I/O unit simplifies the commissioning and maintenance tasks. In addition, screwless push-in connections speed up installation.
When replacing a safety I/O Unit, just remove the old unit and insert a new unit. The setting data is automatically downloaded without using the programming software.
The stand-alone system eliminates the need for dedicated controllers for safety input devices and allows for direct connection of safety input devices.
