Title (EN) VALVE BANK COMMUNICATION MODULE WITH SAFETY I/O
(FR) MODULE DE COMMUNICATION DE BANC DE VANNES AVEC ENTRÉE/SORTIE DE SÉCURITÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A communication module and associated method of operation for controlling a valve bank including at least one fluid valve is provided. The communication module includes a module body mechanically and electrically coupled to the fluid valves and includes a safety processor which is responsive to a CIP safety control signal from a safety controller. The communication module also includes a safety power controller that is operable to remove safety output power from the fluid valves connected thereto in order to satisfy a given functional safety standard for machinery such as PLe or SIL4. The communication module may also include a safety relay with redundant and self-monitoring contacts to further its ability to reliably remove the safety output power from the fluid valves, particularly in the presence of a malfunction with the safety power controller.
(FR) L'invention concerne un module de communication et un procédé de fonctionnement associé pour commander un banc de vannes comprenant au moins une vanne de fluide. Le module de communication comprend un corps de module couplé mécaniquement et électriquement aux vannes de fluide et comprend un processeur de sécurité qui réagit à un signal de commande de sécurité de protocole industriel commun provenant d'un dispositif de commande de sécurité. Le module de communication comprend également un dispositif de commande d'alimentation de sécurité qui peut fonctionner de façon à interrompre une alimentation de sortie de sécurité des vannes de fluide connectées à celui-ci de façon à satisfaire à une norme de sécurité fonctionnelle donnée pour des machines telles que le PLe ou le SIL4. Le module de communication peut également comprendre un relais de sécurité avec des contacts redondants et à contrôle automatique pour accroître son aptitude à interrompre de façon fiable l'alimentation de sortie de sécurité des vannes de fluide, en particulier en présence d'un dysfonctionnement avec le dispositif de commande d'alimentation de sécurité.
