Rockwell Automation introduces Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardLink safety system

April 12, 2018 — Rockwell Automation introduced the Allen-Bradley Guardmaster GuardLink safety system, a safety-based communications protocol that is designed to help operators reduce and improve machine diagnostics.

With GuardLink, safety devices are connected in series while providing access to individual device diagnostics. This system provides safety, diagnostics, remote reset and lock command over a single four conductor cable with up to 32 devices per link.

The GuardLink technology integrates with Allen-Bradley Guardmaster safety relays and components, allowing users to access status information throughout their entire safety system. The connection of safety devices with smart taps enabled by GuardLink technology and standard cabling to a Guardmaster safety relay allows visibility into the system, down to individual guard doors and E-stops.

The GuardLink safety system fully integrates with the Logix platform with predetermined tag names in the Rockwell Software Studio 5000 application.
