Product Details Supplier Info More products

Phoenix Contact has introduced I/O modules to expand the network-independent Safetybridge system in terms of flexibility, functionality and application areas. The new additions include a safe input module with further inputs and a logic module with extensive functional upgrades.

The logic module can communicate with up to 16 remote safe I/O modules. Together with the input modules featuring 16 safe inputs each, a Safetybridge island can encompass up to 256 safe inputs. Up to 31 such islands can be operated from a standard control unit.

As these systems are able to exchange safety signals with each other, Safetybridge technology is suitable for installation in large-scale and modularly structured machines and systems.

Further information

  • The modules and safety logic are easy to set up using the Safecont software, which is freely downloadable from the Phoenix Contact website.
  • There are 14 safe-function modules in total, ranging from emergency stop through to various muting blocks.
  • The safety system is independent from the network and control units.
  • The safe modules, mixed with non-safety inline I/Os, can be distributed across the network below a range of standard control units.
  • Safetybridge can be used with any standard ‘non-safe’ PLC, giving the user distributed local safety I/O where required.
  • Safety signals are transmitted via the standard network cabling — for example Profinet, Ethernet/IP and Modbus.
