Video Tutorial: Murrelektonik’s MVK Metal Safety with active safety technology
Murrelektronik’s MVK Metal Safety Fieldbus module boasts active safety technology, generating safe inputs and outputs combined with a safe control (F-PLC). Using the fieldbus protocol, PROFINET / PROFIsafe, ensures that safety-related data is transferred reliably, as part of a complete system that fulfills high safety standards (SIL3 and Ple). Errors like overload, sensor short circuit or wire breaks are monitored for each individual channel, signalled by an LED at the affected port, and reported to the control. This single channel diagnostic ensures that only the affected channel is switched off, without interfering with neighbouring channels. MVK Metal Safety also works perfectly with various safety components like CNC, Light Curtains and Sensors.
