With its new safety controller samos® PRO COMPACT PLUS with integrated standstill and motion monitoring, Wieland Electric facilitates safe machine automation via a single module. In doing so, the new graphics-oriented programming tool samos® PLAN6 offers maximum support. This free tool makes programming safety tasks even simpler, safer and more flexible. Since programming adopts graphic design, no special knowledge of PLC programming languages is required.
Ease of use and a high degree of functionality
Users can resort to an ample library with more than 40 certified and field-tested function blocks - without any additional programming input.
samos® PLAN6 disposes of numerous interfaces and is compatible with all Windows operating systems, including Windows 10, which makes the software not only future-oriented but also especially flexible.
In addition, users may increase the tool's functionality by specifying and administrating sensors and function blocks in the corresponding libraries. Even complex safety tasks can be programmed with ease, because all inputs and outputs and up to 300 function blocks can be used without any restriction in any individual project.
Enhanced safety and reduced costs
Moreover, samos® PLAN6 facilitates the remote maintenance of safety controllers without any additional effort. Thanks to the integrated online diagnostics and system logbook, expensive maintenance work can be avoided.
The programmable safety functions can be tested on the PC in advance. This feature is attributable to the simulation function of the integrated logic analyzer, which also ensures improved functional safety later on during actual operation.
Integration into industrial networks can be easily implemented as industrial Ethernet and fieldbus protocols are already integrated into samos® PRO COMPACT with a convenient tool.
A particularly convenient feature of samos® PLAN6 is the configurable documentation function which, at the push of a button, generates a st
