M12 interfaces for safe signal transfer
Two new control heads with interfaces for M12 plug-in connectors expand the railway range of the automation system PSS 4000-R from Pilz: one head module with PLC functions and one I/O head module. Both are suitable for application conditions in accordance with the CENELEC standards EN 5012x. Thanks to the 4-pin coded M12 interfaces they ensure interference-free communication on rail vehicles and in signal and telecommunication facilities, even with difficult environmental conditions and high mechanical loads.
Suitable I/O modules with railway approval are available for safe digital and analogue signal processing. T-type I/O modules can be used for the extended temperature range of -40 to +70°C for non-safety-related signal processing.
