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!
