Safety monitor




The new G9SX-LM Low-speed Safety Monitoring Unit consists of two proximity sensors and a G9SX safety controller with fault diagnostics. This safety monitoring unit is a category 3 (EN954-1), SIL 3 (IEC/EN 62061) certified redundant safety system that monitors and confirms motor rotation speed to facilitate safe machine maintenance. The system can also provide standstill monitoring. The monitor allows an operator to access the machine for maintenance work while the machine is running at a safe, maximum set operating threshold of 10 Hz. Should the motor speed exceed the preset speed, the system will stop the machine immediately. An optional A4EG enabling grip switch provides an additional layer of safety protection that, if pressed or released, will also immediately stop the machine.
