Optimum protection for man and machineMurrelektronik, so far, has been known as a supplier for passive safety technology solutions. Passively safe fieldbus modules like MVK Metal, Cube67 and MASI, combined with MIRO Safe relays create safe installations. If necessary, the module's outputs are switched off so the affected machine parts are also safely shut off. This is a simple solution, because concepts and standards can be maintained.
With MVK Metal Safety, Murrelektronik now has active safety technology. This rugged field-bus module generates safe inputs and outputs in combination with a safe control (F-PLC). Using the fieldbus protocols PROFINET/PROFIsafe and PROFIBUS/PROFIsafe ensures that safety-related data is transferred reliably. MVK Metal Safety is part of the complete system that fulfills high safety standards.
Murrelektronik's new fieldbus modules enable installations with Safety Integrity Level 3 (according to IED 61508 and IEC 62061) and Performance Level E (according to EN ISO 13849-1). The fully potted MVK Metal Safety modules are suitable for applications in harsh industrial environments, thanks to IP67 protection and a high resistance to media and vibrations. Moreover, they feature comprehensive diagnostic options.
Typical applications include: connecting two-hand control devices, EMERGENCY STOP circuits, guard doors, safety mats and light barriers, as well as applications in machine tools and machining centers, in forming and sheet metal working, in foundry plants and forges or in cutting and welding units.
