Control Unit 200 SERIES
The most advanced control unit
for Inxpect safety radars, with the widest range of communication options.
Performance and connectivity thanks to the Ethernet Fieldbus
The C201A control unit can monitor up to 6 Inxpect Smart Sensors, and thanks to its Ethernet connection, it can also be configured remotely using the Inxpect Safety Application in total safety.
Safety Fieldbus
Safety Fieldbus
The Ethernet Fieldbus permits connection between the control unit and the PLC that controls the machine, to exchange complex information, such as real time operator position, allowing rapid integration with machinery fieldbuses.
Dynamic setting of detection fields
Dynamic setting of detection fields
With the C201A it is possible to change the detection field dynamically by selecting in real time one of the 32 available configurations. This features is particularly useful in mobile applications, like AGV (Autonomous Guided Vehicles) and MIR (Mobile Industrial Robots) applications.
Secure ethernet configuration
Secure ethernet configuration
Remote configuration and management protected by industry standard cyber-security protocols.
Digital inputs
Digital inputs
The C201A control unit has two dual-channel inputs, which support the following functions: muting signal, emergency stop signal, restart signal.
Safety outputs
Safety outputs
The C201A control unit has two dual-channel safety OSSDs or four auxiliary outputs, which can be configured to signal restart feedback, fault, muting.
Muting function
Muting function
The system can be configured to temporarily deactivate some sensors when they are not required to detect motion in the area, allowing operators to access parts of the working area.
Maximum flexibility.
One control unit, from one to six sensors: small to large, simple to complex, a solution for every requirement.
  • Automatic background detection and removal allows the system to adapt itself to changing conditions in the work area.
  • The software supplied with the system allows for multiple configurations: assisted automatic configuration for regularly-shaped areas and manual configuration for monitoring more complex areas.
  • Programmable muting allows the creation of differentiated intervention areas where operators can gain safe access according to production logic.
