An alternative to multiple safety relays that take up panel space is the new compact Telemecanique Preventa XPSMC safety controller. It can perform the various functions of up to 20 different safety relays and provide real-time status and diagnostics of the machine control system. The safety controller has an extensive library of certified safety functions for applications that must conform to Category 4 of standard EN 954-1. It is available with either 16 inputs or 32 inputs. They are also available in starter packs, which contain a safety controller, configuration software, screw- and spring-clamp terminals, configuration cable and adapter – providing everything needed for a complete installation.
