The New Programmable Machine Safety Control Unit (PCU) Bridges The Technology Gap Between Safety Relays/PLC Systems For Machine Builders/Users

July 9, 2014 - PCU Programmable/Modular Controller Bridges Gap in Technology Between Safety Relays and PLC SystemsgrammableControl Unit - Bridges Gap in Technology Between Safety Relays/PLC Systems To Integrate Multiple Safety Devices

This is a viable and cost effective machien safety control unit solution to solve applications in the market, such as upgrading traditional safety relays without incurring the higher costs of a PLC system, providing for a custom safety control unit that is capable of handling multiple safety devices, managing programming of logic control functions for those devices, multiple machinery locations/machine safety devices. 

Modular Technology For Various Applications and Safety Devices

Tapeswitch Corporation’s strategy is to introduce a machine safety control unit assisting  the  machine builder, rebuilder, and end  user with integrating a fully programmable safety control unit. This is a viable and cost effective solution to solve applications in the market, such as upgrading traditional safety relays without incurring the higher costs of a PLC system,  providing for a custom safety control unit that is capable of handling multiple safety devices in tandem ,  managing programming of logic control functions for those devices, multiple machinery locations and machine safety integration in tandem, and integration of safety devices with existing PLC systems.  This PCU/1 main control unit is modular and can accept a total of 14 expansion modules, creating a  system that can have up to 128 inputs,  16 dual channel safety outputs, and 16 status outputs to handle your machine safety configurations, devices, and networks. Tapeswitch Corporation also offers an integrated PCU/1 main unit with PCUEU/1 expansion unit for  additional multiple fail –safe  devices.

Programmable Safety Control Unit For Most Machine Safety Devices

Tapeswitch Corporation is offering a new PCU safety control units that is a modular series of machine safety control units making machine safety integration easier and programmable with logic control functions for all your safety devices, such as multiple combinations of mats, edges, bumpers, laser scanners, light curtains, non-contact safety switches, photocells, mechanical switches, emergency stops, two hand controls.

 TheProgrammable  Control Unit  (PCU)  is certified up to a CAT 4 SIL CL 3 SIL 3 Ple safety level performance, depending upon the safety device capabilities, system configuration, and installation.
