Versatile Safety Relay Family

Designed to meet new global functional safety standards, such as EN ISO 13849-1, the Allen-Bradley Guardmaster line of safety relays includes seven basic units capable of supporting a range of safety device applications including single- and multi-zone configurations.

The relay line features a patented, single-wire communication capability that helps eliminate the need for dual-channel connection between relays. Users can expand and cascade safety functions up to a SIL 3 rating using a single wire to connect devices, reducing installation time and effort. In addition, AND/OR logic can be set via a rotary switch on the front of the relay, yielding a variety of configurations including regional and global e-stop architectures. A universal input feature allows devices such as safety interlock switches, emergency stop switches and safety mats to use the same set of input terminals on the relay. The line also features dual input modules, providing users with twice the functionality of a standard relay in a 22.5mm housing, while reducing wiring for faster commissioning.
