ROCKWELL Automation will demonstrate its machine safety solutions at The Safety Show 2004 to be held at the Sydney Showground in October.

Centre stage will be the expanded range of Allen-Bradley GuardMaster safety products, including safety interlocks switches, Prosafe trapped key interlock systems, emergency stop and cable pull switches, safety light curtains and laser scanners, plus safety relays and contactors, safety mats and edge systems.

The exhibit will include the latest additions to the GuardPLC safety-controller family--the GuardPLC 1600 and GuardPLC 1800--which are both complemented by new programming software and three I/O blocks that bring distributed I/O to safety applications.

The GuardPLC 1600 offers 20 digital inputs and eight digital outputs, while the GuardPLC 1800 features 24 digital inputs and eight digital outputs, as well as eight analogue inputs and two high speed counters.

Both models feature integrated four-port Ethernet switches and are rated the fastest safety controllers available today.

Also on display, will be Rockwell Automation's DriveGuard solutions, providing cost-effective, certified protection for the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 70 family of ac drives.

The DriveGuard's 'safe-off' functionality prevents drives from delivering rotational energy to motors, by integrating an optional safety board with the power switching signals.

Internally mounted in the PowerFlex 70 ac drive, the DriveGuard option meets EN954-1, category 3 machine safety requirements.

Meet with the Rockwell Automation team at The Safety Show, stand E10 at Sydney Showground and Exhibition Complex, Sydney Olympic Park, October 13-15, 2004.
