    Add Nuance to the Visual Language of Machines

    GET MORE INSIGHT AT A GLANCE

    Dynamic statuses are machine or process conditions that are often challenging to convey with a traditional solid color or flashing light.  Examples include machine warmup state, transitional states, takt time remaining, fill level, and more.

    Advanced indication requires a broader spectrum of color options. More colors allow each status or assembly step to have a unique indication from other steps, eliminating confusion and speeding up interpretation of the signals. 

    Additional colors and animations also communicate advanced states visually and intuitively for operators and supervisors alike.  They add nuance to the visual language of your machines, conveying more status information at a glance compared to traditional indicators.

    Scalable Safety Control for Large Assembly Processes

    Application: Safeguarding multiple points across a large assembly station

    Challenges: A variety of hazards are present

    Solution: The XS26-2 Expandable Safety Controller

    Benefits: Can add up to eight expansion modules which means it can adapt to large machines

    Using single-function safety relay modules to safeguard semi-automated assembly lines with multiple hazards can be cumbersome. With multiple zones and dozens of safety devices needed to safeguard larger assembly processes, wiring can become complex, resulting in high costs and long installation times to create the appropriate safety logic and circuits. A simple safety solution is needed to ensure safety logic and circuits help safeguard hazards and protect personnel.

    Description
    Banner’s XS26-2 expandable safety controller is a scalable safety solution that can be tailored for a wide variety of machines, including large-scale machines with multiple processes.

    With the ability to add up to eight I/O expansion modules, the XS26-2 has the capacity to adapt to larger footprint machines with multiple hazards and access points. Several pre-configured safety functions and logic blocks are available in the intuitive programming software.

    A broad spectrum of safety devices is supported, allowing for complex applications to be configured and downloaded to the controller in a minimal amount of time for efficient machine commissioning. With an easy-to-use software platform, users can immediately connect safety devices to the controller.

    iAutomation unifies engineering and technology to provide complementary solutions within the entire machine line, allowing for consistent evolution of performance.
