Programmable Safety Controllers

Compact, powerful and user-friendly...

ABB_Programmable_safety_controllers.pngThe Pluto concept enables simple communication, programming and changes to the system. Pluto reduces installation time in many ways. For example, its safe bus simplifies the connection between cabinets in accordance with PL e/SIL3 and the AS-i models reduce cabling to a minimum while eliminating most risks of incorrect connection.

The programming software combines TÜV approved function blocks and ladder logic, and is very easy to use. Furthermore, up to 32 Pluto units can exchange data without having to configure or program the communication.

The Pluto systems consist of different types of Pluto Safety PLCs for all kinds of machine safety applications, gateways for communication with other control systems and encoders for safe position determination of machine movements.

Safety Controllers

The Vital Safety Controller and Safety Relays

ABB_safety_relay_bt50-_bt51-_e1t-_rt7a-_rt6_2tlc172530f0201.jpgABB offers safety relays for all kinds of safety devices. Their safety relays have great flexibility and a wide range of input options. The relays are small and compact with an excellent reliability and safety level.

When several safety devices are to control the same output, it is common to connect them in series. To conform to PL e, serial connection is not possible and each device should have its own safety relay. Vital offers the capability to exclusively control smaller machine safety systems that would otherwise have required a programmable controller or multiple safety relays. With the Vital safety controller, up to 30 safety devices can be connected in series to one Vital and still reach PL e.

Safety Sensors, Switches and Locks

Devices for the dynamic signal (Pluto safety PLC/Vital safety controller)

  • Eden non-contact sensor
    • ABB_Eden.jpgHighest safety level for harsh environments
      Eden is a non-contact safety sensor for interlocked doors and safe position sensing. The safety sensor is used to assure that a machine stops when a door or hatch is opened. It can also be used to monitor a robot if it is in a fixed position when someone enters the working area of the robot. 

      A non-contact safety sensor consists of two complementary parts that can sense each others presence without mechanical contact. This enables more flexible mounting compared to traditional mechanical switches. Eden is constantly communicating between the two parts and any failure will directly lead to a stop signal.
  • Magne magnetic process lock
  • Dalton process lock with tongue
  • Knox safety and process lock

Devices for all types of safety controllers

  • Sense non-contact sensor
  • MKey5 key switch
  • MKey8 and MKey9 process lock

Optical Safety Devices

ABB_orion_groupshot_390x195.pngOptical safety devices detect a presence in their protected field and don't require any action from the machine operator. Therefore, they are considered as more production friendly than other safety devices. Our broad range of optical safety devices includes light curtains, light grids and single beam. Some are basic for the simple applications, some offer more advanced functions as muting for the more demanding applications.
