    Safety controller modules Preventa XPS MP are designed for a Performance Level of up to PL e/Category 4 conforming to standard EN ISO 13849-1.They enable two independent safety functions (selected from a choice of 15 pre-defined configurations) to be performed using the same product. Configuration selection is easily made using 3 buttons on the front face of the module.

    Configurable safety controller Preventa XPS MC is designed to provide a solution for safety applications requiring conformity to Performance Level PL e/Category 4 EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL3 EN/IEC 61508. The configurable controller consists of 6 variants with 16 or 32 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs (6 solid state, 2 category 4 relays) and communication possibilities of Modbus RTL Serial, Modbus RTL Serial and Profibus DP, Modbus RTU Serial and CANopen. The safety controller Preventa XPS MC is configured with a simple software environment where functions are mapped to the various controller outputs according to the application requirements.

The modular and configurable safety controller is able to monitor multiple safety functions on and around a machine protecting operators from accessing dangerous moving parts of the machine. The controller consists of 8 digital inputs, 2 digital outputs and is expandible up to 128 digital inputs and 16 digital outputs (relay or solid state). Up to 8 axis for measurement of maximum speed, speed range, zero speed and direction by proximity sensors or encoders can be managed. The controller can be expanded directly on its' backplane bus and as well via the safe expansion bus of up to 6 islands and 50 meters between islands.

    These safety controller are designed for monitoring multiple safety functions such as:

    • Emergency stop
    • Guard monitoring
