Pepperl+Fuchs’ G10 safety module is the world’s smallest AS-Interface safety module with IP67 protection. Applying a strict “less is better” design philosophy, G10 safety modules are a Safety at Work solution that reduces the complexity and cost of any safety installation. Additionally, the design supports high modularity enabling OEMs to transform any conventional safety device into an AS-Interface networking solution, thus further reducing inventory requirements and simplifying machine designs.
AS-Interface Safety at Work combines conventional and safety I/O devices on a single network, and the new G10 safety module significantly expands the Safety at Work capabilities. This solution can reduce wiring requirements up to 90 percent.
The ultra-compact G10 modules feature a single-piece design that delivers unobtrusive simplicity and superior long-term reliability when compared with complex multi-part safety module designs. With innovative Connect & Done technology the ultra-compact 40 mm x 27 mm x 22mm housing can be placed directly inside a cable tray, eliminating mounting requirements in many applications.
With Connect & Done technology, adding safety devices to any setup using the G10 safety module takes only minutes. And it is irrelevant if magnetic door switches, e-stops or key operated door switches are necessary.
