Safety door system MGB2 Classic adding intelligence to non-networked machines

Treotham presents the new MGB2 Classic, an enhanced version of the
globally successful Multifunctional Gate Box MGB from Euchner. However, unlike the
recently introduced MGB2 Modular, the Classic variant does not
communicate using a bus system, instead connecting directly to the respective
control system, thereby making it the ideal choice for non-networked machines
that are wired in parallel.

MGB2 Classic features two OSSD outputs, continuously provides
diagnostic information via an LED indicator, and can be connected in series
with up to ten devices.

The modular design of the MGB2 Classic offers maximum
flexibility to machine manufacturers, integrators and users. All requirements
for door locking systems can be met through combination with numerous freely selectable
submodules such as pushbuttons, selector switches, key-operated rotary switches
or emergency stop buttons. This simplifies warehousing and allows subsequent
machine modifications or expansions to be implemented efficiently.

A DIP switch additionally contributes to the versatility offered by the
MGB2 Classic: Depending on the switch position, the safety outputs are
activated as soon as the door is closed but not locked or only when the door is
safely locked. Even greater variability is provided by the locking module,
which can be fastened on doors hinged on the left or right and on sliding
doors. Moreover, the MGB2 Classic can be tailored to its respective
task using Euchner accessories from the comprehensive Treotham range: from
enabling switches to escape releases or auxiliary releases.

In addition to the robust housing, the extensive diagnostic functions
and the submodules’ hot-plugging capability, ease of repair of components was
also considered when developing the latest member in the MGB2 family. For
example, all screws are captive and can be tightened or loosened with just one
tool. Furthermore, coded terminals or an RC18 plug connector on the connection
modules ensure rapid, trouble-free replacement, substantially reducing downtime.
