PSRmodular – the modular safety system

At SPS 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany, Phoenix Contact will be showcasing the PSRmodular configurable safety system for applications up to PL e and SIL3. You can use the TBUS DIN rail connector to quickly and flexibly adapt the system to your application.

The comprehensive portfolio consists of various function modules starting from an overall width of just 22.5 mm which are based on the ME MAX housing concept. Tool-free installation using COMBICON connectors with Push-in connection enables you to reduce startup time. In addition to monitoring emergency stop signals, safety door locks, light grids, and pressure mats, modules are also available for safe motion monitoring. This means that you can implement safety functions in accordance with EN 61800-5-2 for various encoder signals, such as proximity switches, TTL, HTL or SIN/COS.

At the heart of the system there are two basic modules with different performance ratings, which also support safety-related communication between modules. A safe analog module for monitoring 0/4 - 20 mA or 0 - 10 V signals completes the range. When it comes to process data communication, you can choose from any of the common bus protocols, such as PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Modbus/TCP or EtherCAT.

The PSRmodular software is equipped with comprehensive functions and diagnostic options, so no previous programming knowledge is needed to configure the system. This enables you to create machine and process applications with up to 160 safe I/Os. The system will be available as of the first quarter of 2020.
