In installation technology, it is common to connect digital IOs via distributors or modules with several IO ports. Safety solutions often contain superfluous parallel wiring or a parallel system environment, both of which are unnecessary with AS-Interface safety. Where safe components need to be implemented in PLe in a decentralized manner, either AS-Interface can be integrated into the safe end device, or a complete, two-channel AS-Interface module can be used for connection. Many different AS-Interface integrated devices or sufficient space in which to install the modules are necessary as a result. Pepperl+Fuchs wants to put an end to this dilemma with the G10 safety module featuring IP67 protection. Any safety switch with dry contacts can be connected to this ultra-compact module in a modular fashion. Whereas the flat cable previously had to be fed out of the cable duct, direct installation within the cable duct is possible thanks to the unit's low height of <23 mm. All that can be seen from outside is the round cable outlet to the safe end device. The one-piece housing enables flat cables to simply be fed through and contacted via round, gold-plated pins, while being tightly sealed at the same time, by using a single screw. The safety module does not require screw mounting because it is so small and lightweight.
