Bachmann electronic has extended its portfolio of safety modules with the SCT202 M1 automation module, a speed and position measurement module for safety-related applications, particularly suitable for wind turbines. The SCT202 module eliminates the need for external solutions for safety speed monitoring.
The shared use of the acquired measured values for safety-related and non-safety-related automation tasks reduces system costs for procurement as well as for integration, mounting and operation. The safe, application-related processing of the acquired values in Bachmann's SLC284 safety controller makes it possible to implement complex scenarios. Possible applications include the detection of overspeed situations, gearbox failure as well as cable twist. The SCT202 was tested by TÜV Süd and has valid certification for SIL 2 / PL d to IEC61508, ISO13849, IEC62061 and IEC61131-6.
