Safety PLC

NEXUS

NEXUS je PLC nejmodernějšího designu určené k řízení bezpečnostně relevantních procesů.

Primární oblastí nasazení jsou aplikace v kolejové dopravě s nejvyššími bezpečnostními cíli. Kromě standardních modulů bezpečných digitálních vstupů a bezpečných digitálních výstupů NEXUS nabízí i moduly pro řízení návěstidel a přestavníků různých typů.

Modulární výstavba umožňuje sestavit cenově optimální konfiguraci IO modulů.

Výkon, flexibilita a spolehlivost NEXUSu spolu s výbornou diagnostikou dovoluje řešit původně reléové zařízení na generačně vyšší úrovni.

Svojí propojitelností je NEXUS ideální platformou pro otevřené řídící systémy.


NEXUS is the latest generation of PLC. Its primer intended use is control of safety relevant processes. These are especially applications in railway traffic where it is mandatory to fulfill highest safety target. NEXUS fulfills safety integrity levels at SIL4 according to CENELEC EN 50126, EN 50128, EN 50129 and EN 50159-1/2 standards.

Thanks to NEXUS modular architecture it is possible to create cost-optimal configuration of I/O modules. Unlike conventional PLC NEXUS is specialized for use in rail traffic control applications. Together with standard safe I/O modules it also offers modules for operation of common types of switch-points and signals. Central controller module and diagnostic module are part of NEXUS module portfolio as well.

Due to integrated axle counter the price of control application is as low as possible.

The chosen architecture makes it possible to use NEXUS in distributed applications where wide variety of network connections and safe communication can be used.

Combination of powerful 32bit processors Freescale (Motorola) and high-speed communications predestines PLC NEXUS for most demanding control applications. Efficiency, flexibility, ease of use and maintenance together with great price allows systems, based on relays in the past, to be solved on higher generation level, both in terms of economy and reliability.

NEXUS offers both standardized redundancy 2oo2 scheme of control and 2oo3 concept as well.
