Treotham announces the introduction of two new modules for its
successful Euchner MGB2 Modular multifunctional gate box. The new, small
version of the MCM extension module offers space for up to six functions, which
can be designed to meet individual requirements. What’s more, the new MSM
submodule provides users with additional safety inputs for connecting external
switches, meaning they can easily be connected to Profinet/ Profisafe.
MCM: compact, scalable and
Treotham presents the perfect solution for users who require more than
the six functions available with the MGB2 Modular safety door system by Euchner.
The new compact MCM extension module has two slots, meaning it can be assembled
with up to six control or application elements, for instance, with an emergency
stop button and enabling switch or with a key-operated rotary switch. This
means users can choose between this small extension module and the existing
larger version, which has four slots to accommodate up to twelve additional
control and application elements.
The MCM has many standout benefits. For example, the submodules with the
function elements are simply inserted into the extension modules via a hot-plug
and need only minimal configuration before they are ready for operation. The
submodules can also be easily replaced if necessary. There are no limits to the
MCM’s functional possibilities and applications. It can be installed separately
from the MGB locking module and bus module – inside a production area, for
example, with the bus module installed outside. The MCM can also be used in
combination with the bus module without a locking module or door handle.
MSM submodule: decentralised
peripheral as plug-and-play
The MCM extension modules can be used with the new MSM submodule as a
decentralised peripheral for connecting electromechanical safety switches with
M12 plugs. The fail-safe inputs can record the signal states of safety switches
such as rope pull switches, emergency stop buttons and position switches and
can transfer the safety signals to the control system via Profinet using the Profisafe
The MSM submodule has three dual-channel digital inputs, allowing up to
six slots to be used as secure inputs when using the small MCM extension
module. The MSM is equally suitable for M12 push-pull plugs and M12 threaded
plugs. In addition, the system is hot-pluggable during operation and needs only
minimal configuration before it is ready for use.
The MGB2 Modular has a modular system design to give users greater
flexibility. As a result, extension modules and submodules are easily scalable
and functions can be expanded and changed without difficulty. Users, therefore,
benefit from a system that is customisable and flexible enough to meet any
potential future requirements.
