Schneider Electric Preventa XPS MCM modular safety controller

Tuesday, 31 May, 2016 | Supplied by: Schneider Electric



The Preventa XPS MCM is a modular safety controller capable of monitoring multiple safety functions and is the latest addition to the Schneider Electric Preventa range of safety products.

The Preventa XPS MCM is a configurable, embedded safety controller designed to protect industrial machines and operators from incidents involving moving machine parts. It is capable of monitoring multiple safety functions, including emergency stop, guard monitoring, perimeter guarding, position monitoring and speed monitoring.

Preventa XPS MCM is designed for safety applications requiring conformity with Category 4 standards EN ISO 13849-1 and SIL3 EN/IEC 61508.

The controller has eight digital inputs and two digital outputs, and it can be expanded up to 128 digital inputs and 16 digital outputs (relay or solid state). It is easy to expand a configuration from small into large, due to the availability of a wide range of communication modules. It is possible to build up to six island architectures via safe communication, with a distance of up to 50 m between each island. Expansion is possible directly on the controller backplane bus as well as via the safe expansion bus.

The modularity of the XPS MCM system enables users to match it to the application while reducing the number of components, footprint and wiring. The scalable unit makes it possible to standardise safety monitoring devices from simple to complex standalone and machine lines. To simplify the machine maintenance, the system has a removable memory card that can be used to transfer the configuration to a new controller.
