Treotham Automation Pty Ltd announces the release of a new range of safety controllers designed for universal use in all kinds of machine and industrial applications.

The Samos PRO COMPACT safety controller features a width of only 45mm, with its compact size significantly reducing logistical outlay and simplifying safety. The safety controller is complemented by the new graphic programming tool Samos PLAN5+, a free software that makes programming simple, safe and flexible.

The compact module comes with 16 safe inputs, four safe outputs, four safe configurable inputs/outputs and an exchangeable 512Mb program memory.

Samos PRO COMPACT safety controllers also come with an SD memory card that is very easy to handle, thus saving time during commissioning, copying and servicing. A library of certified, powerful function blocks is available for programming the system using the Samos PLAN5+ software.

Integrated USB and Ethernet interfaces enable system access at any time. While Industrial Ethernet protocols are integrated from the beginning, other additional gateways for fieldbuses allow simple and straightforward integration into a wide variety of industrial networks.

Samos PRO COMPACT safety controllers are suitable for a range of industries, and can be used in harsh ambient conditions thanks to their switching capacity of 4 A at every single output of the system and an operating temperature range of -25°C to +65°C.

Key features of Samos PRO COMPACT safety controllers also include modular expandability for up to 168 safe inputs and outputs; all inputs and outputs featuring unambiguously assigned visual displays, clearly indicating the operating status at any moment to ensure safe operation; and meeting all relevant safety standards, including SIL CL 3 according to EN 62061 and PL e/category 4 according to EN ISO 13849-1.
