EL3356-0090 | TwinSAFE SC: accurate 1-channel load cell analysis (resistor bridge), 24 bit

The analog EL3356-0090 input terminal enables direct connection of a resistor bridge or load cell in a 4- or 6-wire connection technology. The ratio between the bridge voltage UD and the supply voltage UREF is determined simultaneously in the input circuit and the final load value is calculated as a process value on the basis of the settings in the terminal. With automatic self-calibration (can be deactivated) and dynamic filters the terminal with measuring cycles of 10 ms can be used for slow weighings with high precision.

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. To do this, EtherCAT I/Os from the areas of analog input, position measurement or communication (4…20 mA, incremental encoder, IO-Link, etc.) are extended by the TwinSAFE SC function. The properties typical for the signals and the standard functions of the I/O components are retained. TwinSAFE SC I/Os differ optically from standard I/Os by a yellow stripe on the front of the housing.

The TwinSAFE SC technology enables communication via a TwinSAFE protocol. These connections can be distinguished from the usual secure communication via Safety over EtherCAT.

The data from the TwinSAFE SC components is fed via a TwinSAFE protocol to the TwinSAFE Logic, where it can be used in the context of safety-relevant applications. Detailed examples confirmed/calculated by the TÜV SÜD for the correct application of the TwinSAFE SC components and the respective normative classifications can be found in the TwinSAFE application manual.
