G9SP is simple to program and reconfigure to satisfy evolving application needs; can also be combined with PLC for complete control solution
FREMONT, CA – Omron Scientific Technologies Inc. introduces G9SP Programmable Safety Controllers. These software-based stand-alone controllers are quickly programmed to satisfy the complex safety control needs of small and mid-sized machines, and are easily reconfigured to solve evolving machine set-up needs. Three base models with a range of I/O options are available to satisfy varied application requirements, and four types of expansion I/O units are available for hard-wired diagnosis or standard signals. List prices start at under $600, making the G9SP the most cost effective programmable safety controller available today.
“In addition to being a price leader, with the G9SP’s unique and intuitive programming software users can easily design, verify, standardize and reuse safety control. And because the G9SP isn’t hardwired into the control system, users will benefit from previously unavailable levels of safety system flexibility by quickly and easily reconfiguring the unit when new safety features are added to their set-up,” says Tony Rigoni, Business Development Manager, Omron STI.
G9SP programmable safety controllers are an ideal stand-alone safety control solution for small and mid-sized machinery used in packaging, food and beverage, automotive component, injection molding, and printing applications where customer-driven machine set-up changes demand equally flexible safety solutions. These controllers can also seamlessly connect to an Omron PLC and communicate using the FINS protocol for a complete Omron control solution platform.
G9SP programmable safety controllers deliver clear diagnostics and monitoring via Ethernet or Serial connection, and support direct connection with non-contact switches and safety mats. They are DIN track-mountable or can be mounted with M4 screws, require a 24 VDC power supply, and can operate in temperatures ranging from 0 to 55°C. They are ISO 13849-1(PLe) and IEC61508(SIL3) certified.
