Module monitors sends non-safety data
The EIP module for G9SP programmable safety controllers from Omron Scientific Technologies Inc. enables programmable devices that follow ODVA guidelines for EtherNet/IP™ to communicate with G9SP controllers.
Devices such as Omron CJ and CS series PLCs and Rockwell Automation CompactLogix™ and ControlLogix® series programmable controllers can communicate with controllers, resulting in a complete solution that makes it possible to quickly and easily monitor the operation of a G9SP safety controller, and to send non-safety data to that controller. G9SP are software-based stand-alone controllers that are quickly programmed to satisfy the complex safety control needs of small and mid-sized machines. 3 base models with a range of I/O options are available.
