Wieland Electric has added six new industrial press function control blocks to its samos®PRO COMPACT-PLUS family of programmable safety controllers, and integrated support for both EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT fieldbus communication protocols. The expanded capabilities of the modules allow machine design engineers to seamlessly integrate peripheral devices into the automation network, and to relay control information back to these devices using one of several industrial communications protocols. The module now offers six control function blocks to monitor press contacts, ensuring proper signal sequencing and timing during press operation, and to control press operation during setup, single-stroke, automatic, and cyclic modes.
