The Samos Pro Compact from Wieland Electric is an ingenious product which bridges the gap between a PLC and a safety control system. Offering up to 20 safe inputs and 4 safe outputs rated at 4A, this compact unit removes the need to have multiple controllers to perform a single action. If required the Samos Pro Compact can be extended up to a maximum of 12 I/O modules allowing for a total of 116 safe inputs and 56 safe outputs.
The Samos Pro Compact unit is easily installed and programmed through the use of Wieland’s license-free software Samos Plan 6. This not only allows engineers the ability to design their system but also complete validation, verification and create documentation.
These units are certified for use in presses, process industry, combustion plants, elevators and safety of machinery application and come with PROFINET I/O, EtherNet I/O and Modbus TCP protocols internally. Additionally, an external gateway can be installed to offer CANopen, PROFIBUS and EtherCAT protocols, this allows the Samos Pro Compact to be used in a huge variety of different applications.
