TwinSAFE SC: Making standard signals usable for safety tasks

TwinSAFE SC: Making standard signals usable for safety tasks

The ELX3312 analog input terminals allows the direct connection of thermocouples located in hazardous areas classified Zone 0/20 or 1/21. The circuitry of the ELX3312 can operate sensors with 2-wire technology. Linearisation is possible over the entire freely selectable temperature range. The error LEDs indicate a broken wire. Compensation for the cold junction is achieved through internal temperature measurement. Millivolt measurement is also possible with ELX3312.

With the aid of the TwinSAFE SC technology (TwinSAFE Single Channel) it is possible to make use of standard signals for safety tasks in any network or fieldbus. To do this, EtherCAT I/Os from the areas of analog input, position measurement or communication (4…20 mA, incremental encoder, IO-Link, etc.) are extended by the TwinSAFE SC function. The properties typical for the signals and the standard functions of the I/O components are retained. TwinSAFE SC I/Os differ optically from standard I/Os by a yellow stripe on the front of the housing.

The TwinSAFE SC technology enables communication via a TwinSAFE protocol. These connections can be distinguished from the usual secure communication via Safety over EtherCAT.

The data from the TwinSAFE SC components is fed via a TwinSAFE protocol to the TwinSAFE Logic, where it can be used in the context of safety-relevant applications. Detailed examples confirmed/calculated by the TÜV SÜD for the correct application of the TwinSAFE SC components and the respective normative classifications can be found in the TwinSAFE application manual.
