The category 4 safety monitor ASM1 monitors the safe data transmission and ensures the safe switch-off of driver circuits in case of a sensor activation or a fault.
The linking in of safety door interlocks, emergency off switches and position switches is made possible by means of the safety AS-i coupling module.
The Windows configuration software allows the coordination of sensors to specific switch-off circuits by drag and drop with the PC mouse.
