“WOW” Complete control – with safety in mind

Flexible options for add-on functional safety solutions form an integral part of Weidmüller’s remote I/O solution.

weidmueller_miele_en_png“In an industrial context, the terms ‘safety’ and ‘security’ have closely related but nonetheless distinct meanings. Security means protection of the machine from people, whereas safety, i.e. functional safety is the protection of people from the machine,” says Gorm Rose, Weidmüller electronics developer with a focus on functional safety. “In order to reliably pre-empt hazards emanating from the machine, we have extended our u-remote product range to include safe power-feed modules. With a safety level of SIL 3 CL as per DIN EN IEC 62061 and Category 4, PL e as per DIN EN ISO 13849-1, we achieve the highest possible degree of protection in the area of machinery.”

Integrated safety without a security control – no problem thanks to the safe power-feed modules as integral part of the u-remote system
