- Published: Thursday, 31 March 2016 17:30
Phoenix Contact is now offering the SD Flash Easy Safe Basic and SD Flash Easy Safe Pro SD cards, in order to start up components even more easily using the SafetyBridge technology.
SafetyBridge technology is a cost-effective solution for implementing functional safety requirements up to SIL 3 or PLe without using a safety controller.
By using the SD cards, all the necessary configuration settings and initializations for the integration of SafetyBridge components in the standard application are completed automatically. The safety functions are configured via drag and drop using the Safeconf configuration software.
The user-friendly web interface offers numerous diagnostic functions, as well as the option of integrating standard modules into the application. In the pro version, process and diagnostic data are provided via Profinet or Modbus/TCP to other applications, by means of the communication module. In addition, users can be kept informed of current malfunctions or results via email.
