Networked Ethernet IP Interlocks Key Features

 

 

 

 

Networked Interlocks at Fortress

 

 

 

The past decade has seen a significant drive towards networked interlocks and control systems, as devices require more and more functionality with complex logic, whilst reducing distributed I/O and associated costs with component level enclosures on the plant floor.

 

 

 

The Networked Interlocks range offers a direct communication to Ethernet/IP & CIP Safety or PROFINET & PROFIsafe based systems for industrial safety and control with a range of M12 and 7/8″ connection solutions.

 

 

 

Validation of safety functions on networked interlocks can be achieved at a fraction of the time and cost with the safety modules inside the Fortress device reducing the effort required to individually test each safety input and output.

 

 

 

Configurability is at the heart of our solutions, allowing our partners to design solutions to their industrial requirements, from integrating external safe and non-safe I/O such as light curtains, enabling switches, or stack lights, or standard connected interlocks with push button control.

 

 

 

Built as part of the heavy duty range, the Networked Interlock is the industry leader for applications where robustness is paramount.

Supplying Power to your Networked Interlocks – Cabling Topologies

 

 

 

 

Fortress offers a host of standard or bespoke-design connector sets for PROFIsafe or CIP safety device connection at no additional cost. Our team of application experts are happy to help select the solution for your application.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Standard Connector Set Options

 

 

 

The connector set options available from Fortress are designed to suit line, ring, star, or tree topologies.

 

 

 

PLC – Programmable Logic Controller   |   PSU – Power Supply

 

 

Networked Connector Set PF07

 

Star or Tree Topology

 

The PF07 connector set is for standalone devices and utilises M12 connectors to link nodes via 4-pin D-coded Industrial Ethernet for Data Communication and 5-pin A-coded Male for Power.

 

 

 

 

 

Networked Connector Set PF10

 

Line or Ring Topology

 

The PF10 connector set utilises M12 connectors to link multiple devices via daisy-chain. The set includes two M12 D-coded Industrial Ethernet connectors for Data Communication and two 5-pin A-coded Male and Female connectors for Power.

 

 

 

 

 

These style of connector set options are also available in 7/8″ connectors. 

 

 

 

 

PF17 PF13 Networked Interlocks Connector Sets

 

Star or Tree Topology

 

The PF17 connector set offer a 4-pin D-coded M12 Industrial Ethernet for Data Communication and 5-pin 7/8″ Male for Power, with a single internal power connection (pin 2 for 24V and pin 3 for 0V) (with earthing connection).

 

 

The PF13 connector set offer a 4-pin D-coded M12 Industrial Ethernet for Data Communication and 4-pin 7/8″ Male for Power, with a single internal power connection (pin 2 for 0V and pin 4 for 24V) (no earth).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Line or Ring Topology

 

 

The PF11 connector set utilises 7/8″ 5-pin connectors to link multiple devices via daisy-chain. The set includes two M12 D-coded Industrial Ethernet connectors for Data Communication and Male and Female 5-pin 7/8″ connectors for Power (with earthing connection).

 

 

The PF14 connector set utilises 7/8″ 4-pin connectors to link multiple devices via daisy-chain. The set includes two M12 D-coded Industrial Ethernet connectors for Data Communication and Male and Female 4-pin 7/8″ connectors for Power (no earth).
