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

Featured Article: Decoding the Most Versatile Industrial Connector in the World


MC-6-Murr-logo-400.jpg

If you were around in 1980’s you will probably remember walkmans, vcrs, mix tapes and big hair bands on MTV, amongst other things. The decade started with the release of PacMan, the Rubiks Cube and a Hollywood actor called Ronald Reagan winning the US Presidential election. It ended with the first episode of the Simpsons, Timothy Berners-Lee inventing the World Wide Web and the Berlin Wall coming down to symbolize the end of the Cold War.

Some notable 1980’s inventions included the first artificial heart, CD players, the Apple MacIntosh computer, Microsoft Windows, the Nintendo Gameboy and the first GPS satellite to be launched into space.

But there was one more invention of the 1980s that wasn’t really noticed by the general public, but ultimately paved the way for fast, easy and reliable electrical connections that we often take for granted in control systems today. We are talking about the M12 circular connector that was launched at the Hannover Fair in 1985 and has since become one of the most popular industrial connectors in the world.

These days, you will be hard-pressed to walk into any manufacturing plant without seeing an M12 connector. They are used to connect sensors to I/O modules, vision systems to Ethernet switches, light curtains to safety controllers and much more. Originally only available in 3-pole and 4-pole versions with an A-Coded keyway for power and I/O signals, the M12 connector is still evolving and has become one of the most versatile circular connectors available.

Now, more than 35 years since it was launched, there are many different types of M12 connectors for signal, data and power connections.
