Safety linking of the systems as a challenge
From a safety perspective, the safety linking of the linear axis and the robot as well as the many accesses was the biggest challenge. "Linking the safety functions with the wireless safety control "Safety Simplifier" from SSP was many times easier for us than with conventional systems and we were able to flexibly expand the system, for example for safeguarding the windows."
Decentralised safety PLC with Wireless Safety
Because, the Plug & Play solution brings safety to where it is needed. SSP offers the decentralised safety PLC with Wireless Safety with 14 safe, digital inputs and outputs and optionally with two additional, double relay outputs. The user can then configure the 14 I/Os as desired and flexibly as inputs or outputs. For this solution, modules with 14 I/Os were selected for each door unit; the modules on the control cabinets also have two additional relay outputs to switch off the robot and machine potential-free. The door modules are also directly equipped with the necessary operating elements such as emergency stop and illuminated buttons. These can also be freely selected via an online configurator. The integrated LED display enables a quick overview of the inputs and outputs and provides further information on signal strength or number of participants.
