A new system of safety monitoring and control devices has been added to the AutomationDirect line of safety-related products. The ReeR Mosaic safety controller system is modular, expandable and configurable for managing all safety functions of a single machine or an entire plant.
As a stand-alone controller, the AutomationDirect M1 master Mosaic module has 8 inputs, 2 safety outputs, 2 status outputs and 2 inputs for Start/Stop interlock (RST) and external device monitoring (EDM).
By adding up to 14 expansion modules, the safety controller system can have up to 128 inputs, 16 safety outputs, 16 RST/EDM inputs, 32 status outputs, and EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP/IP connectivity.
The master module, input expansion modules, and output safety and status expansion modules are DIN rail mount and 24 Vdc powered; all modules have removable terminal blocks with screw contacts.
The expansion modules connect to the master module via a ReeR proprietary 5-way bus.
