Yokogawa Electric has launched an enhanced version of the safety-related "Pro Safe-RS" controller. The Pro Safe-RS R3.02.00 is equipped with input / output modules that ensure reliable system operation even at very high temperatures. In addition, an open communication protocol is now supported, which considerably improves the compatibility of the controller with process control systems (PLS) from other providers.
An absolute novelty is the specially developed high-temperature-resistant digital and analogue input and output modules. The new modules can be operated at ambient temperatures of up to + 70 ° C. Safety-related control systems and process control systems are not always replaced simultaneously. Therefore, Pro Safe-RS has been extended accordingly and now also supports Ethernet-based Modbus / TCP communication with other systems.
