Prevent and Reduce Unplanned Downtime
In-Series Diagnostics gives machine owners and operators greater insight into the health and performance of their equipment, making them less reliant on outside experts to solve system problems. Users can monitor the status of each device in their safety system in real-time, identify the location and nature of any potential problems, and receive alerts if a critical event does occur, so equipment can get back up and running as soon as possible.
Simple, Cost-Effective, and Easy to Implement
The technology that makes In-Series Diagnostics possible is embedded in the safety devices and communicated using the same cables, connectors, adaptors, and inputs that connect the devices to the safety controller. This eliminates the time, hassle, and expense of running designated cabling between each device and the control panel in order to access diagnostic data. Users can add, move, or remove safety devices as needed and then easily error-proof the entire safety system prior to deployment.
Easy Access to Detailed Diagnostic Data
Data is collected from up to 8 ISD chains and up to 32 devices in each In-Series Diagnostic chain. Using an HMI or similar device, users can view the status and location of each device and drill into the data to determine the unique tag value, internal temperature, voltage, and other device-level details. System alerts notify staff if a monitored door has been opened, an E-Stop button pressed, or any other critical event has occurred.
