PILZ has released two interfaces for the safe open bus system, SafetyBUS p.
One of the compact PSS systems doubles the network extension to 7000m and also doubles the bus subscribers to 126, increasing the number of inputs and outputs to 2016. For users, this means greater flexibility and lower network costs.
The increased capacity is particularly valuable in plants with a large number of inputs and outputs, for plants spread over a wide area, or those with a hierarchical structure.
The systems are now five times quicker, thanks to faster program processing. Reaction times on a safety shutdown are easier to achieve. Along with the added speed comes an expanded memory and optimised diagnostics.
