Safety modules tout reduced installation complexity
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced the G10 safety module – said to be the world’s smallest AS-Interface safety module with IP67 protection. These safety modules are positioned as a Safety at Work solution that reduces the complexity and cost of any safety installation. Additionally, the design supports high modularity enabling OEMs to transform any conventional safety device into an AS-Interface networking solution. The G10 modules feature a single-piece design that provides unobtrusive simplicity and desirable long-term reliability when compared with complex multi-part safety module designs. With Connect & Done technology, the 40 mm x 27 mm x 22 mm housing can be placed directly inside a cable tray, eliminating mounting requirements in many applications, and adding safety devices to any setup using the G10 safety module takes only minutes.
