Regardless of whether the set-up operation must be monitored safely, protection via speed limitation is needed or a safety gate is released after detection of standstill - the speed and standstill monitor UH 5947 of the SAFEMASTER S series is the right choice for your application.

The device can be operated via the 4 buttons on the front and the LCD display, thus enabling simple parameterisation. For example, the encoder type, speed limits per operating mode and delay times can be flexibly adapted to your application. During operation, the current speed values can be read directly at any time, which in particular makes commissioning easier. To prevent manipulation, the configuration can be protected against unintentional changes by means of a parameter lock after commissioning. For multiple use, the configuration can easily be transferred from unit to unit via interface. The device status or the current speed can further be processed by a control system via a semiconductor signal output.

The speed and standstill monitor UH 5947 covers the combined application of encoder signals and PNP or NPN sensors. Alternatively, NAMUR sensor technology can be used as a device variant. The device can be used in temperature ranges from -20 to +60 degrees Celsius and up to heights of 4000 metres.

Advantages and customer benefits

  •    -   Controllable operating mode selection via input terminals
  •    -   Safety gate monitoring and solenoid control possible
  •    -   Feedback from drives through encoders and/or sensors
  •    -   Simple retrofitting into existing drive concepts by switching to encoders
  •    -   Monitoring of slip and shaft breakage through configurable speed ratio of the channels

MC Four Ways Omrons New Factory Drive Recorder Helps You Determine Root Causes 1 400

If a product is scratched by a robot but nobody was there to see it, how do you know what exactly happened? Intermittent problems in manufacturing lines (such as die casting) can cause millions of lost $$$ when repair workers are forced to troubleshoot without any idea of what may have caused the problem or when the problem will occur again.

Omron’s Factory Drive Recorder addresses this issue by letting you monitor machines or areas within your facility and capture what happened just after or prior to a triggering event. Whether your application involves progressive die casting, machine tooling, bottle inspection, high-precision welding, or something else, this solution can save troubleshooting time.

Omron looks at four ways that automation engineers, quality control engineers, system designers, purchasers, and maintenance personnel can benefit from this technology.
