October 15th, 2012, Published in Articles: Vector

In more and more application areas such as vehicle lifts and refuse trucks, there have been clearly defined product standards for some time. Due to the revised machinery directive, the manufacturers of machines often have to meet new requirements. For this reason there is an increasing demand for certified electronic assemblies for mobile vehicles.  ifm electronic’s R360 safety controller can be used in applications up to category 3 / PL d to EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL 2 to EN 62061. The R360 safety controller is capable of extended monitoring and test routines for hardware and software, and features safe inputs and outputs for analogue, digital, pulse and PWM signals. Due to the integrated hardware and software functions, applications can be controlled and monitored according to the new machinery directive.
