DYNlink is an ABB-specific sensor-communication and cabling solution that makes it easy to reach the highest level of safety using a minimum of cables and PLC inputs.
- Reduces required safe I/O with up to 50% compared to traditional interfaces
Easy to install
- Fast and simple connection using M12-connectors
Safety and protection
- Easy to reach highest safety level with up to 30 safety devices in series
Using Vital, the DYNlink circuit allows up to 30 DYNlink devices to be connected in series to a single input while still reaching up to Cat. 4/PL e/SIL3. This dramatically decreases the number of inputs and cables needed, since to reach the same level with standard two-channel safety devices, two inputs are necessary and series connection is not possible. (10 sensors would require 20 inputs.) Compared to OSSD signals, DYNlink only requires half the amount of inputs.
In order to use DYNlink you need one of the following ABB controllers:
Pluto and X20 can handle up to 10 DYNlink sensors in series on each input, whereas Vital can handle up to 30 DYNlink sensors in series on its single input.
