Vital Safety Systems by ABB Safety

Manufacturer: ABB Safety

Vital is the heart of a new solution which makes it possible to install/connect many different types of safety devices in the same safety circuit and still achieve safety category 4 according to EN 954-1/EN ISO 13849-1. The Vital module is based upon a dynamic single-channel concept as opposed to conventional dual-channel safety relays. Up to 30 dynamic sensors can be connected directly in the safety circuit and be supervised by only one Vital module. The Vital therefore replaces several safety relays. Safety components with output contacts can be connected to the Vital via Tina adapters.

Most safety components on the market can be connected to the Vital module. Dynamic sensors enable safety category 4 to be achieved in a single-channel system. For example JOKAB SAFETY’s dynamic non-contact Eden sensor, Spot light beam and emergency stops (via Tina adapters) can be used. Even mechanical switches can be connected to Vital with the aid of JOKAB SAFETY’s Tina adapters.

Up to 30 components can be connected to a Vital module. Vital is a small, 22.5 mm in width, electronic safety module that dynamically supervises a number of safety components. Vital’s detachable connector blocks simplifies connection, trouble-shooting and exchange of module. The Vital and other safety components can be connected together using standard cables and with cables having M12 connections.
