StatusBus from ABB Jokab Safety!

StatusBus is here: The newest revolutionary technology for machine safety solutions

StatusBus (a feature in every Pluto Safety PLC) allows you to connect the information output of your series safety devices (up to 30) into a single terminal and still be able to differentiate which device was activated.

StatusBus with Pluto allows for 30 devices to take only three safety inputs and only one StatusBus input.  This maintains Category 4, PLe, SIL 3 for the safety function as well as offers independent diagnostics for each device.

Most competitors need 90 inputs. We do it in with only four! That’s a 95 percent savings on I/O!

New ABB motor starting solution introduces tool-free, push-in wiring!

ABB is launABB 2CDC246003F0018_508pxching the industry’s first range of motor starting solutions with a Push-in Spring technology that makes fault-free wiring easier than ever. The innovative tool-free connection concept speeds up wiring work and provides a vibration-resistant connection that makes continuous operation more reliable.

ABB’s intuitive 2-in-1 design combines the advantages of both Push-in and Spring technology in a single terminal.

In Push-in mode, rigid cables or cables with ferrules can be connected tool-free. The operator just pushes them into the cable holes, cutting wiring time by up to 50 percent in comparison to a conventional spring solution and making installation significantly easier. The self-tightening terminals help eliminate wiring errors and mean there is no need for routine re-tightening work.

Spring mode makes it simpler to insert small cross-section cables or cables without ferrules, and also makes unwiring the motor starters significantly faster. The operator simply inserts a screwdriver into the clearly marked holes before inserting the cable. This one-step process makes ABB’s solution easier to use and less prone to damage than conventional spring mechanisms.
