More Safety for Mobile Machinery

B&R introduces new safety relay module for X90 control system.

The new safety relay module from B&R makes mobile machinery even safer.

Mobile machines are becoming increasingly autonomous. They require controllers that are not only compact, but also safe. B&R has expanded its X90 control system with an option board that allows floating-ground connection of external safety devices, making mobile machines even safer.

    Mobile controllers with safe, floating outputs have previously not been available on the market. With B&R's new safety relay module, external safety components such as drives or laser scanners can now be connected to the X90 controller via a floating-ground emergency stop circuit. A safety level of PLe / SIL3 can be achieved. The option board is particularly suitable for autonomous agricultural and construction vehicles.                                                               

    With its powerful, expandable X90 controller, B&R offers design freedom that is unique on the market. The range of option boards opens up new possibilities for implementing customer-specific automation solutions. In addition, the controller comes in a rugged IP69K housing. Since it does not require a control cabinet or complex wiring, easy service is guaranteed.
