Drive-integrated safety with PMCprotego DS

Drive-integrated safety with PMCprotego DS

With safe motion, safety functions are easily applied in the servo amplifier via the safety card PMCprotego S, thereby providing a drive-integrated solution for motion monitoring. The STO "safe torque off" function is included even in the basic version of the servo amplifier PMCprotego D. This provides a flexible, scalable safety solution. You decide individually how many safety functions your application needs.

Unlike external solutions, in addition to the available rotary encoder signals, PMCprotego DS can use internal system variables such as terminal voltage, EMF (electromotive force) or motor currents for safe motion detection. As well as the fact that less wiring is involved, an integrated solution also has the benefit of a shorter reaction time to errors.

The SLS ("safely limited speed") function, for example, is available for setting up the machine. The converter monitors the speed internally and, in the event of a fault, responds much more dynamically than would be possible when using an external monitoring circuit that switches off the drive.

The benefits of PMCprotego DS

  • Highly dynamic, short reaction times
  • Reduced tooling times as well as rapid commissioning
  • Safety is independent of the encoder system
  • Easy-to-use software tool
  • High availability thanks to individually configurable motion monitoring functions
  • Devices are easy to exchange thanks to the SD memory card (standard and safety configuration)
  • Integrated diagnostics PVIS
  • Less wiring
  • Greater functionality and convenience, as internal system variables can be used
  • Highest safety level PL e only requires a standard feedback system
