Compact, powerful and user-friendly...
The 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.
The Vital Safety Controller and Safety Relays
ABB 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.
Sensors, switches and locks are used to control the gates and hatches around hazardous machinery, and to monitor the position of a machine.

Devices for all types of safety controllers
Optical 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.
