IDEM’s range of SCR Safety Relays are designed in accordance with EN60204-1 for safety circuits and they may be used in conjunction with Mechanical Interlock Guard Switches, Emergency Stop Switches, Non Contact Guard Switches or Light Curtains to achieve redundant monitoring and fault checking up to PLe Category 4 ISO13849-1.
When dual circuit monitoring is used they can check the switch contacts for correct opening and re-closing, monitor for wiring short circuits and can be configured to check for correct opening of external machine contactors. For applications requiring time controlled delays after opening of the guard switch, versions with time delayed output contacts are available (variable 0 to 30 seconds).
