Product Details

Flexi Soft Safety Controller, Main unit - FX3 CPU000000

Flexi Soft is a programmable and modularly expandable safety controller capable of being integrated into various networks. The main module FX3-CPU is the CPU of the entire system within which all input signals are monitored and processed via the safety logic stored in the memory plug. These signals are then used to switch outputs on the system through the FLEX BUS+ interface which connects all units to one another. The main unit has an RS-232 interface with which the Flexi Soft Designer can upload and change system settings. The RS-232 port can be used for permanent diagnosis (i.e. PLC or HMI) as well.,Functions: EDM, muting, operating mode switching. Logical functions: AND, NOT, OR, XNOR, XOR. Application specific logical functions: operating mode switch, muting, emergency stop, presses, two hand control.,For the integration of Flexi Soft data into an existing PLC, up to two gateways can be added to a system. The gateways provide I/O Status and Error/Status Messaging. Additionally, non-safety related information can be sent to the Flexi Soft from the network. Each gateway can send and receive at least 50 Bytes of information.
