Original Press Release:
C6 Multifunction Safety Controller
The C6 Multifunction Safety Controller acts as an interface between various Tapeswitch sensing devices and a machine or process control. It is designed to monitor up to six zones consisting of 1 to 3 B-Series Light Curtains and/or 1 to 6 other sensing devices. The C6 safety controller provides power to all connected B-Series Light Curtain emitters and receivers and monitors the output signals. In addition to the light curtains, the C6 safety controller interfaces with various pressure-sensitive, normally-open switches made by Tapeswitch including ribbon switches, sensing edges/bumpers, and switching mats.
Features & Benefits
The C6 safety controller incorporates built-in fault protection. It automatically detects an open or short within the sensor or its connecting cable and can also detect internal failures.
The C6 safety controller is a fully self-contained unit housed in a rugged metal enclosure. It is designed to be wall mounted and has six knockouts that accept standard 1/2" or 3/4" conduit. It will accept an input power source range of 85 to 264 Vac at an input frequency range of 47 to 63 Hz. The unit will also accept a regulated 24 Vdc supply.
