Within the DST1-XD0808SL-1 Safety I/O Terminals family, the DST1-XD supports 6 safety inputs and 8 safety outputs (semiconductor output), and is capable of storing simple logic. This allows local outputs to be directly controlled by local inputs for a response time of 18.7 ms.
The typical response time of a safety I/O terminal can be longer than a stand-alone system, since it is dependent on the network system structure. The response time determines how quickly and safely a machine can be moved to a safe state irrespective of its overall complexity. You can calculate safe mounting distances independent of these variables and mount machine safeguards close to potential machine hazards.
The DST1-XD can act as a DeviceNet Slave, allowing safety input and status information to be monitored via a DeviceNet Master.
