Programmable Safety Controller
ABB Jokab Safety Pluto concept enables simple communication, programming and changes to the system. Pluto reduces installation time in many ways. For example, its safe bus simplifies the connection between cabinets in accordance with PL e/SIL3 and the AS-i models reduce cabling to a minimum while eliminating most risks of incorrect connection. The programming software combines TÜV approved function blocks and ladder logic, and is very easy to use. Furthermore, up to 32 Pluto units can exchange data without having to configure or program the communication. The Pluto systems consist of different types of Pluto Safety PLCs for all kinds of machine safety application, gateways for communication with other control systems and encoders for safe position determination of machine movements. All Pluto models supports the StatusBus functionality.
Together with ABB Jokab Safety Pluto, rotational absolute encoders can be used for safe position determination of machine movements. The encoders are available in both single and multi-turn versions. Main benefits include Easy safe communication with the Pluto Safety PLC; Easy programming with ready made function blocks & Safe position and speed monitoring. Main features include Single and multi-turn versions; Selectable resolution, up to 8192 positions/rev & Up to PL e/SIL3.
With the use of a Gateway device, ABB Jokab Safety Pluto can communicate with other control systems and thereby form a part of a larger network. The unit has a common interface with Pluto, i.e. the same cabling and the Pluto Manager software can be used for servicing and where necessary programming. There are different Gateway models available for different field buses. Main benefits include Two-way communication; Simplified programming with ready made function blocks & Function blocks free of charge. Main features include Support for industry protocols: Profibus DP, DeviceNet, CANopen, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, EtherCAT & Sercos III.
ABB Jokab Safety Pluto is a cost effective, powerful and compact safety PLC for all machine safety applications. Most safety devices on the market can be connected directly to Pluto and multiple safety sensors can be connected to a single input and still achieve the highest safety level. Programming is done easily in the accompanying software Pluto Manager. Pluto is available in different models; simple models for smaller systems and models with bus communication for lager systems. Some of our Pluto models are adapted for AS-i . Models with analogue inputs are available as well. Main benefits include Easy programming and still powerful; Eliminates the need for extra module for speed monitoring for ex.; Up to 32 Pluto can exchange data without extra programming; Safe bus simplifies connection between cabinets in accordance with PL e/SIL3; AS-i models simplify connection & Extensive communication possibilities with HMI and PLCs. Main features include Most Machine Safety functions inclusive speed monitoring and analog input monitoring; Advanced programming possibilities; Ladder and TÜV approved function blocks; PL e/SIL 3 & Supports StatusBus.
ABB Jokab Safety offer a range of accessories for Pluto Safety-PLC such as cables, connectors, function blocks and identifier circuits (IDFIX). IDFIX is an identification circuit that is unique to each device on the Pluto bus. It includes an identification code and makes it possible to distribute a PLC program in the network. There are four different versions: R, RW, DATA and PROG. In addition to the identification code, DATA may also include safety codes from the AS-i nodes in an AS-i system. PROG includes the current PLC program and is used with single-Pluto for program distribution.
