EIP module for G9SP Programmable Safety Controllers
OMRON Automation and SafetyPosted 05/17/2011
Omron Scientific Technologies Inc. introduces the EIP module for G9SP Programmable Safety Controllers. The EIP module enables programmable devices that follow ODVA guidelines for EtherNet/IP™, such as Omron CJ and CS series PLCs and Rockwell Automation CompactLogix™ and ControlLogix® series programmable controllers, to communicate with G9SP controllers. The result is a complete solution that makes it possible for users to quickly and easily monitor the operation of a G9SP safety controller, and to send non-safety data to that controller. This valuable information can be reviewed or combined with manufacturing process data, helping users to more efficiently achieve their productivity goals.
G9SP are software-based stand-alone controllers that 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. The EIP module is available with the G9SP as a complete safety controller solution (kit).
