Safety Network Controller with Great
SEPTEMBER 17, 2009 (ASIA PACIFIC) -
Omron Corporation has introduced a Safety Network System that
enables a wide range of devices to be easily networked and
managed remotely. The Safety Network Controller is the
world's first safety controller with a built-in DeviceNet Safety interface.
With seamless integration into DeviceNet Safety interface, Omron
has produced one of the best industrial field buses around. It
is compliant with the highest safety standards in industry and
meets the guidelines of IEC 61508 SIL3 for functional safety and
Category 4 of EN954-1 for machine safety.
The NE0A Safety Network Controller provides up to 12
built-in safety inputs and 8 built-in safety outputs suitable
for small-scale safety applications.
Safety-certified circuits for the
required safety category are easy to configure by simply
selecting and combining items, such as reset conditions and AND
operations. Safety circuits created can be saved as templates
and reused for easy standardization. Templates can be made of
modules that partially stop applications, while maintaining a
fixed 20-ms response, which is among the fastest in the
industry. A wide range of TUV-certified templates is also
available for customization. Operating status of the safety
systems can be monitored from a standard DeviceNet Master.
It is also possible to combine
logic with safety signals from the other safety controllers over
a safety network distribution system. The Controller meets
guidelines of SIL3 of IEC61508 for functional safety and
category 4 of ISO 13849-1 for machine safety.
Omronís DeviceNet safety is designed with the flexibility for
system expansion via networking for further cost-savings. It
conforms to Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) safety
specification standard set by ODVA. By using one single
DeviceNet Network, it can effectively monitor safety systems
within a large area. Omronís Safety Network Controller
significantly reduces wiring and testing costs. It can also be
easily changed or upgraded to suit your machine safety

The new NE1A-SCPU0-EIP Safety
DeviceNet Controllers incorporate the established
global-standard EtherNet/IP Communication protocol for
multi-vendor interoperability. Said to be the world's first
programmable safety controller with a built-in DeviceNet Safety
interface, this controller is designed with the flexibility for
system expansion via networking. NE1A can manage up to 16
DeviceNet Safety slaves in one network thus significantly
reduces wiring cost.
What's more, it is certified for compliance to IEC6150 SIL3 for
functional safety as well as to EN954-1 category 4 for machine
With Omronís DeviceNet Safety solution, safety is no longer a
complex system but is effective in reducing downtime and
