SmartGuard 600 Controller
|SmartGuard™ 600 Controller||Product Design||RSNetWorx Software for DeviceNet Network||Typical Applications||Guard I/O™ Modules||Specifications|
The SmartGuard 600 safety controller is a programmable safety controller designed for safety applications that require some complex logic allowing for more advanced safety functionality. It features 16 safety-rated inputs, 8 safety-rated outputs, 4 pulse test sources and an optional EtherNet/IP™ port. To support both standard CIP and CIP safety, a DeviceNet™ connection is also included. Configuration and programming is accomplished on EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, or through the built-in USB port.
Since the SmartGuard 600 safety controller is a safety master on the DeviceNet network, you can use Rockwell Automation Guard I/O™ modules to expand the number of safety devices the SmartGuard 600 controller can control. It can also perform safety interlocking between a GuardLogix or other SmartGuard 600 controllers. With your choice of EtherNet/IP™ or DeviceNet™ communication, other devices such as standard PLCs and HMIs can read data out of the SmartGuard 600 controller for system-level diagnostics and troubleshooting.
Use RSNetWorx™ for DeviceNet™ software to configure the network and program the controller. From within RSNetWorx for DeviceNet software, you can launch an editor that lets you write function block programs for the SmartGuard 600 controller. No additional programming software is required. With ten safety application instructions, plus another dozen logic and timing instructions, you can write powerful, yet simple safety control programs.
- Small, cost-effective, intelligent safety controller
- Ideal mid-level safety controller when the application is too complex for a safety relay, yet too simple for a full-sized safety PLC
- Use the DeviceNet network to distribute safety I/O and integrate into a standard control system
- Use RSNetWorx for DeviceNet software for configuration and programming — no special programming software required
