SAFETY LASER SCANNER TAKES PROFINET SWITCH ONBOARD

Leuze electronic has come up with a new design of safety laser scanner that is easier to integrate with industrial networks. The RSL 400 Profisafe safety laser scanner comes with a Profinet interface as standard, allowing secure communications and easy remote configuration and diagnostics.

The Profinet switch is integrated into a removable connection unit. This enables the replacement of a scanner without network interruption, thereby increasing system availability.

Connection is via standard M12 connectors, and thanks to its lateral cable entry the RSL 400 has a low installed profile. Other AIDA-compliant connection models with push-pull connectors for copper and fibre-optic cables are also available.

The integrated 2-port switch supports Profinet Conformance Class C and isochronous real-time communication, and so the RSL 400 is well suited for use in line and ring topologies, as well as use in star topologies.

The 2-port switch also enables parallel access of both standard and safety PLCs, reducing the data load through the safety PLC.
