Banner Engineering SC26-2 Programmable Safety Controller

Wednesday, 12 February, 2014 | Supplied by: Micromax Pty Ltd

The Banner Engineering SC26-2 Programmable Safety Controller is used for PLC-level capability and control without the programming complexity and steep learning curve of traditional PLCs. Designed to be more flexible and easier to use than other small footprint safety controllers, the device uses safety function blocks, Boolean logic functions and a user-friendly programming environment for creating safety control logic.

With 26 input terminals and two redundant solid-state safety outputs, safety system design engineers are able to easily monitor a variety of input devices, such as e-stop buttons, rope pulls, interlock switches, safety light curtains and other safety and non-safety input devices. The controller’s free PC graphical user interface configuration software features preconfigured safety function blocks, including two-hand control, muting and enabling device to simplify application programming. It also includes a ladder-logic diagram and a text-based summary of all of the input device and controller output settings.

The safety controller has eight input terminals that can be configured to monitor input device signals, source 24 VDC or serve as IO status outputs.

The optional LCD displays IO status and actionable diagnostics such as input fault information and device wiring details. This assists users during commissioning and enables faster troubleshooting to minimise machine downtime.

Ethernet models are also available and have an embedded ethernet node that provides up to 64 virtual status outputs. The ethernet IO registers automatically populate based on the configuration and can also be pared down or customised depending on application requirements. For larger scale applications, Banner will have expandable models in the future, which will allow users to add up to eight additional IO modules.
