Compliant to ISO-14119
03 October 2017
The Schmersal Group is exhibiting safety systems for complete plants and complex machinery at this year’s Motek exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany.
These solutions meet essential requirements of Industry 4.0 concepts and can be adapted easily to varying applications. They enable preventive maintenance, increase productivity and efficiency and at the same time ensure a high safety level.
The new AUX variant of the AZM 300 AS, a solenoid interlock with integrated AS-i-Safety-at-Work interface, achieves the highest safety level PL e with the safe two-channel release function. Therefore, it is said to be worldwide the first AS-I solenoid interlock which meets all user requirements of the ISO 14119 standard. Thanks to the integrated RFID technology AZM300-AS achieves the coding level ‘high’ thus ensuring a high protection against manipulation according to ISO 14119. Apart from the AUX power version the AZM300 solenoid interlock is also available in the AS-i power variant.
The fieldbus standard AS-i is used to connect non-safe as well as safe switches, sensors and interlocks in a simple and cost-effective way. AS-i safety solutions therefore offer a variety of diagnosis options and enable an early fault detection for instance.
The new Schmersal Safety Installation Systems support users in their use of series connection of different safety switching devices such as safety sensors and solenoid interlocks within larger safety functions and enable simple, failsafe and cost-optimised wiring solutions.
