Banner Engineering Universal Input Safety Modules

The Banner Engineering UM-FA-..A Universal Safety Module is used to increase the control reliability and safety integrity of a circuit and devices. The safety module is designed to monitor a 1-channel or 2-channel safety switches (e.g., E-stop or safety interlocking switches) or a 1-channel or 2-channel PNP output from devices such as a safety laser scanner (e.g. AG4-4E).

  • Monitors a wide variety of safety and non-safety input devices:
    • Optical-based safeguarding devices, such as Safety Laser Scanners
    • Positive-opening safety switches used for guard interlocking
    • Emergency-stop devices, such as palm buttons and rope/cable pulls
    • Standard sensors for non-safety applications, such as photoelectric monitoring position or end-of-travel
  • The safety inputs can monitor (selectable via DIP switch):
    • +24V dc solid-state (PNP) outputs in single-channel or dual-channel hookup,
    • +24V dc source that is switched by hard/relay contacts in single-channel or dual-channel hookup, or
    • Hard/relay contacts in a dual-channel hookup using terminals S11-S12 and S21-S2
  • Automatic reset or monitored manual reset, depending on hookup
  • Design complies with standards ANSI B11.19, UL991, ISO 13850 (EN418), and ISO 13849-1 (EN954-1)
  • Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 (IEC 61508/62061)
  • Category 4, Performance level (PL) e (ISO 13849-1)
  • For use in functional stop category 0 applications per ANSI NFPA 79 and IEC/EN 60204-1
  • Plug-in terminal blocks
  • 24V ac/dc operation
