Rockwell Automation’s Allen-Bradley ArmorStart ST distributed motor controllers with integrated safety can be mounted directly on a machine, allowing users to implement functional safety with fewer components.
The ArmorStart ST with integrated safety is a networked safety enabled On-Machine solution designed to integrate into Allen-Bradley Logix controllers and programmed using Studio 5000 software.
The ArmorStart ST motor controllers offer safety ratings of up to PLe/SIL3 and Cat 4. They also have built-in safe torque-off, which removes rotational power to the motor but not the drive.
ArmorStart products are suitable for food and beverage and automotive applications, like conveying and material handling, where minimizing downtime is critical. The ArmorStart ST motor controllers with integrated safety offer automatic device configuration.
The motor controllers require no additional enclosure near the motor or machine, enabling shorter cable runs.
