The safety module in the MS-ER MA R01 series is a logical block, with an integrated actuation unit, that can be used to implement electrical control systems associated with the functional safety of a machine.
Typical applications are the control of Emergency Stop controls - Limit switches for mobile safety guards - Safety Sensors and Devices with solid-state outputs such as photo-electric Safety Curtains (ESPE).
By connecting these devices appropriately to the inputs of the safety module, 2-channel control systems with integrity levels up to SIL "3" may be implemented according to EN 62061 or IEC 62061, and with performance levels up to PL "e", according to EN ISO13849-1. Single-channel circuits can also be implemented but with integrity levels up to SIL"1" and performance characteristics to PL "c" levels.
The module is also equipped with a dedicated START input, which when appropriately configured, allows for the implementation of AUTOMATIC START or MANUAL START functions.
