New: Fast 32-bit safety controller for mobile machines

Essen, January 2013 – For safety-related applications in mobile machines ifm electronic offers a new powerful 32-bit safety controller. The device is a perfect choice for complex and demanding control functions.


Another new feature is the graded error handling. The user can define response thresholds. The fast 32-bit safety controller can be used in a way to switch off in case of serious errors and bring the plant into the safe state. In case of less serious errors, parts of the plant in previously defined areas can still be used. Not all components have to be switched off. Predefined functions already exist for this.

The behaviour of the inputs and outputs can be adapted to the respective application easily and precisely using the CODESYS programming software. 2 CANsafety interfaces are possible.

The R360 safety controller is a completely new development in a tried-and-tested housing. Even under extreme operating conditions it guarantees its monitoring and protection function. On the occasion of the bauma exhibition, ifm will present this 32-bit safety controller that has been developed according to current standards for hardware and software and certified by TÜV.
