Unidrive M gets enhanced safety
Control Techniques has introduced a new safety-specific module to its Unidrive M family. The SI-Safety module has been designed specifically to integrate with Control Techniques' Unidrive M600 and M700 models, and increases machine productivity and functionality while adhering to the highest standards of safety.
The new module is approved by TUV as meeting SIL3, the highest safety level attainable for industrial electrical components, as well as demonstrating compliance with recognised standards governing the safety of machinery and electrical systems.
SI-Safety works to minimise production downtime by enabling a machine to slow-down or stop, removing the need to power-down the machine after interruption in conjunction with the end user's safety procedures. End user safety is further enhanced through the introduction of Safe Stop and Safe Operating Stop, while machine operators will also benefit from Safe Limited Speed and Safe Limited Position functionality.
Full safe PLC capabilities are unlocked via the dedicated CTSafePro programming environment.
