This week sees the launch of the new PSRmodular Configurable Safety system.

Functional Safety by definition provides protection against harm to person/s by the detection of potentially dangerous conditions. This is very much dependent on the hardware used to carry out this task.

PSRmodular takes this to the next level by providing one of the most flexible and adaptable safety systems on the market today.

PSRmodular provides flexibility from the very beginning. You can choose from 1 of 2 expandable controllers depending on the complexity of your application. Then, if required, you can decide on the expansion modules you need. There are plenty of I/O expansion modules to choose from in various sizes to suit your application so you only order what you need.

All common input types are catered for :

  • Emergency stop
  • Two handed control
  • Safety light curtains (AOPD)
  • OSSD (Output Signal Switching Device)
  • Safety Mats
  • Zero speed monitoring
  • Over/Under speed
  • Safe analogue monitoring

When it comes to integrating the PSRmodular system into the rest of the machine we have that covered to with the optional communication gateway options.

All popular communication protocols are catered for with non-safe bidirectional communication possible for all types.

The PSRmodular Software is “FREE” and can be downloaded from our website now

The new PSRmodular software is intuitive and easy to use with pre-configured function blocks and built in monitoring for all of your safety tasks.

Not only can you create a powerful stand-alone system with up to 14 possible expansions you can also take advantage of the “Line E-STOP” concept which allows up to 6 base modules to be connected together to decentralise your safety I/O.

Current approvals:

  • Up to PLe/SILCL 3 (IEC 62061)
  • Lift application (EN81-20/EN81-50)
  • UL 508
  • Atex zone 2, CL1 Zone 2, IEC EX

Look out for the PSRmodular starter kits coming soon!
