Emerson’s cutting-edge ASCO Numatics™ Zoned Safety system enables users to isolate the air supply to a moving machinery component, which helps contribute to safer work conditions for personnel without unnecessary disruption to the production process.
The integrated approach simplifies redundant pneumatic safety circuit design with a single valve island, making it possible to configure up to three discrete zones per machine.
This simple, user-friendly solution reduces components, requires less space and improves design flexibility:
- Simplifies the design of a Cat 3 pneumatic safety circuit (compatible up to PLd) by integrating the safety function into a pneumatic valve island
- Allows multiple independent safety circuits (up to 3) to be cost-effectively designed into a single pneumatic valve island
- Improved productivity and machine availability through independent safety circuits (zones)
- Evaluated by TÜV Rheinland (Report No. 968/FSP 1228.00/16) in accordance with ISO 13849-1
