Connect in series, know the status of each device and save I/Os

StatusBus

Serial connection saves cable length and installation time. Our StatusBus functionality allows you to benefit of the advantages of serial connection and still obtain the status of each connected safety device. Now, you can also speed up troubleshooting and reduce downtime.

The devices are connected in series with standard cable and M12-5 connectors. No specific bus cable is necessary, no extra communication module either.

With our solution, only one I/O is needed on the Safety PLC to obtain the status of up to 30 safety devices and only one safety input is needed for the safety signal of up to 10 devices in series with a PL e.

The products supporting the StatusBus functionality are : Eden, Smile, Inca and Pluto programmable safety controller.

The units connected to StatusBus can be addressed either with Pluto Manager, or using the addressing unit Fixa
