EC: Allen-Bradley Guardmaster 440C-CR30 safety relay with EtherNet/IP module
Safety - Machine safety: The new, optional EtherNet/IP plug-in module for the Guardmaster 440C-CR30 safety relay allows the relay to easily communicate diagnostic data to a CompactLogix or Micro800 controller. This is a Control Engineering 2016 Engineers’ Choice Awards Winner.
Machine builders can easily implement required safety functions while improving productivity with the Allen-Bradley Guardmaster 440C-CR30 safety relay from Rockwell Automation. The configurable safety relay is ideal for applications requiring four to 10 safety circuits and control of up to five zones. Users program the safety relay through a simple process of selecting certified safety function blocks to rapidly build applications with the free Connected Components Workbench software from Rockwell Automation. The Guardmaster 440C-CR30 safety relay is completely integrated with Logix-based controllers, and can also be configured and programmed in the Rockwell Software Studio 5000 environment.
The new, optional EtherNet/IP plug-in module allows the Guardmaster 440C-CR30 safety relay to easily communicate diagnostic data to an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix or Micro800 controller. By leveraging the Connected Components Workbench software and the embedded communication capabilities of the Guardmaster 440C-CR30 safety relay, users can monitor, troubleshoot and modify their applications quickly and easily for increased uptime.
