Omron STI introduces NE0A-SCPU01 Safety Network Controller
The NE0A includes safety function blocks for e-stop, door switch, external device monitoring (EDM), safety light curtain, limit switch, enabling switch and mode selector. The NE0A is a cost effective safety network control solution ideal for smaller safety networking applications that have a smaller number of I/O points. For larger safety networking applications, Omron STIs NE1A series programmable safety network controller can be used.
Potential applications include automobile parts on automotive lines, semiconductor lines or cells, flat panel display lines or cells, printing and packaging machines, machine tools, molding machines, electronic components and manufacturing equipment for office automation products.
A force set/reset feature allows users to simulate signals from the network, enabling them to debug the NE0A independent of the network. A USB port allows direct USB connectivity to a computer so that an NE1A master is not required for programming. NE0A operating conditions can be monitored from a standard DeviceNet Master, and network expansion is possible by adding an NE1A Safety Controller to the network. Network Configurator software version 2.1 or higher is required for programming the NE0A.
