• CAT 4 SIL 3 PL-E safety system
• Modular control unit
• Fully electronic safety switches
• Monitor up to 30 switches / e'stops
• Unique code safety switches (EN 14119 high code)
The F-SERIES, is the latest version of Mechan's unique electronic safety system which now has a record of over 40 YEARS reliability in all types of industrial applications.
The DIN rail mounting safety control unit can monitor up to 30 Mechan safety switches and/or emergency stop buttons in one system. The electronic non-contact safety switches are fully encapsulated, easy to install and tolerant to misalignment.
Together the switches and control module provide a safety system capable of meeting the requirements CAT 4 SIL 3 PL-e, and can be used in the harshest environments, providing long term reliability.
The F-SERIES, is a CAT 4 SIL 3 PL-e safety system suitable for use in most machine guarding applications where guard locking is not required. Mechan's unique modular design makes it easy to install and expand a safety system that exactly meet our needs.
The F-SERIES safety control module is made up from an FM1 Safety Control Module and the required number of extender modules.
The FM1 is the main module containing the power supply input, re-set circuit, control relays with dual channel output, and the input and indication outputs for one Mechan safety switch.
The Extender Modules clip onto the same DIN rail as the FM1 and connect to the adjacent unit via the attached strap. Any combination of Extender Module can be used to suit the application. Modules available include :
The flexible, DIN rail mounting safety control unit can monitor up to 30 Mechan Safety Switches or Emergency Stop Buttons in one system. Providing dual safety output and volt free contact and LED indication from each safety switch.
The electronic non-contact safety switches connect to the control unit inputs using a simple twisted pair / screened cable. Using a dynamic signals to communicate with the control ensuring both the switch , cable and input are continuously monitored.
Together the Mechan safety switches and control modules provide a safe system that can be used in the harshest environments and where long term reliability and speedy fault correction is the key to today’s productivity requirements.
All installations should be completed by a competent engineer. Consideration should be taken of the relevant applicable safety standards. All installations should be tested prior to operation and regularly checked for integrity.
