EL3214-0090 | TwinSAFE SC: 4-channel input terminal PT100 (RTD) for 3-wire connection

The EL3214-0090 analog input terminal allows four resistance sensors to be connected directly. The EtherCAT Terminal circuit can operate sensors using the 3-wire technique. A microprocessor handles linearisation across the whole temperature range, which is freely selectable.

With the aid of the TwinSAFE SC technology (TwinSAFE Single Channel) it is possible to make use of standard signals for safety tasks in any network or fieldbus. The standard functions and features of the I/Os remain available. The data from these TwinSAFE SC I/Os is fed to the TwinSAFE Logic, where they undergo safety-related multi-channel processing. In the Safety Logic the data originating from different sources is analysed, checked for plausibility and submitted to a “voting”. This is done by certified function blocks such as Scale, Compare/Voting (1oo2, 2oo3, 3oo5), Limit, etc. For safety reasons, however, at least one of the data sources must be a TwinSAFE SC component. The remainder of the data can originate from other standard Bus Terminals, drive controllers or measuring transducers.

With the aid of the TwinSAFE SC technology it is typically possible to achieve a safety level equivalent to PL d/Cat. 3 in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1 or SIL 2 in accordance with EN 62061.
