Users can configure the safety relay with either software or a human interface module, using a variety of parameters to help meet specific application requirements, including safe direction, safe limited speed, and safe maximum speed with door control and monitoring. For example, the relay can help increase productivity by unlocking doors automatically when the speed of the machine is below a safe speed limit or zero speed is detected. The relay monitors the speed of the motion via one or two encoders, depending on the level of integrity required. It supports numerous input devices such as E-stops, light curtains, enabling switches and interlock switches.
