Simplify Safety Controller Setup and Swapout

Simplify Safety Controller Setup and Swapout

Banner’s entire line of safety controllers can now be configured using an SC-XM3 external drive. Users can apply a configuration to multiple safety controllers to get machines up and running quickly or to a single safety controller for an easy swapout in the field.

This capability was first introduced with the release of the SC10 Series and has been extended to include SC26 and XS26 safety controllers with a FID 3 (or higher) feature identification number running version 4.2.0 (or higher) of their safety controller software.

Key Benefits

Quickly Configure Multiple Safety Controllers: Write the configuration for your safety system once, save it to an SC-XM3 external drive, and load it on to any additional safety controllers requiring the same configuration. A single user can configure multiple safety controllers in a matter of minutes without a PC.

Simplify Device Swapout: Backup your safety system configuration to an SC-XM3 external drive, label appropriately, and store it in the micro USB slot on the safety controller. No safety system expertise is necessary to load and apply the saved configuration to a replacement safety controller.

Error-Proof Deployments: Using the SC-XM3 ensures consistency by eliminating the need to rewrite identical configurations for additional or replacement safety controllers. Users can save tested and perfected configurations to the SC-XM3 and reapply them without the risk of introducing an error or inconsistency into the configuration.
