TwinSAFE Compact Controller EK1960

The new EK1960 TwinSafe Controller integrates a complete safety controller including numerous I/O channels in a compact design.

It combines an EtherCAT coupler, TwinSAFE PLC, digital inputs and outputs. Primarily designed for applications with a small and medium scope of safety, the EK1960 can be used as an autonomous controller or as a decentralized controller.

The EK1960 integrates:

  • EtherCAT coupler incl. E-bus interface
  • TwinSAFE PLC
  • 20 safe digital inputs (24V DC)
  • 24 safe digital outputs (24V DC)
  • 4 safe digital outputs (potential-free contact)
  • For small to medium applications up to SIL3 according to IEC 61508 and DIN EN ISO 13849 PLe
