Logical alternative for safety

Logical alternative for safety Omron has introduced an innovative flexible safety unit that offers partial or complete safetyguarding of a machine control system. The G9SX uses microprocessor technology to provide a transparent, logical connection throughout an entire machine to be shut down according to its safety layout. In this way, a faulty process within a machine can be isolated instead of having to switch off the entire system. The G9SX range comprises a basic unit, and advanced unit and an expansion unit. A unique hardware-based dynamic ‘safety carrier signal’ forms a logical connection between these flexible safety units and the machine. This ‘safety carrier signal’ produces an easy parallel-wired structure of logical AND connections to determine a partial or complete shutdown, instead of using a complex combination of conventional relay outputs. It also provides a continuous system check to ensure the highest safety integrity at all times; even complex machines can be easily segmented for more precise shutdown during fault finding or maintenance.
