HMI supports programmable safety

HMI supports programmable safety

NB series HMIs from Omron now support the company's G9SP programmable safety controller, providing machine builders with a new option that is said to be feature-rich and cost-effective compared with other low-I/O safety controllers. The NB HMI series can be directly connected to Omron's G9SP safety controller via serial communications. Direct connection enables users to view the operational status and see details of errors monitored by the G9SP controller, all of which contributes to reduced machine downtime. Users can see graphically where in the machine a safety error has occurred.

Omron's G9SP programmable safety controller can process both safety and standard I/O, which would typically require multiple controllers from other control suppliers. Some safety controllers only process safety I/O and require a separate network unit to connect to an HMI, which adds extra cost and increases space requirements. In contrast, the G9SP enables machine builders and system integrators to consolidate their safety and low-I/O applications within one controller and one HMI.
