PLC-linked Applications: Safety Controller

Light Curtain Optical Axis Visualization

With the ability to monitor the received light intensity for each optical axis of a light curtain, PLCs can help prevent malfunctions by issuing an alarm if the intensity decreases due to dirt or vibrations.

Remote Monitoring of Door Sensors

GS-M Series/GS Series

Door sensors are often installed in hard-to-see locations, so centralized monitoring through communication with a PLC enables quick identification of problems.

Visualization of Safety Inputs/Outputs on the VT5

ON/OFF status of safety inputs/outputs

Networking makes it possible to check the status of safety inputs and outputs on the touch panel without having to connect monitor AUX outputs from each device to the PLC.
