Phoenix Contact PSR-Trisafe safety controller

Phoenix Contact PSR-Trisafe, a new safety controller, can monitor an entire safety circuit, from emergency stops to safety doors, in a machine or plant.

The slim 67.5 mm safety controller can monitor up to 20 safety input signals. For example, the Trisafecan monitor up to 10 dual contact emergency stops. It also provides four safety category 4 outputs, as well as outputs for a test pulse, alarm (aux) and ground switching.

Configuration is simple using the "Safe Configure" (Safeconf) software package. The fully functional software requires no programming knowledge. A drag-and-drop interface makes it possible to integrate new safety equipment with just a few mouse clicks.

Safeconf software's simulation mode allows testing of the safety design without connecting the hardware.

Phoenix Contact Safeconf software is available at for free download .
