Safety linkage of the plants as a challenge
From a safety perspective, the greatest challenge was the safety interconnection of the machines and robots from various manufacturers. "We searched for a long time for a suitable safety system for our application, but no manufacturer was able to deliver a satisfactory solution. The linking of all machines was much easier with the wireless safety controller "Safety Simplifier" from SSP than with conventional systems."
Decentralized Safety PLC with Wireless Safety
Because the Plug & Play solution brings safety to where it is needed. SSP offers the decentralized 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, and the modules on the control cabinets also have two additional relay outputs for potential-free disconnection of the robot and machine. The door modules are also directly equipped with the necessary operating elements such as emergency stop and illuminated pushbuttons. These can also be freely selected via an online configurator. The integrated LED display provides a quick overview of the inputs and outputs and provides further information about signal strength or number of participants.
