Software upgrade brings additional functionality to safety controller

19 August 2011

Banner has released a software/firmware upgrade for its SC22-3 and SC22-3E safety controller. Version 3.0 is the result of customer and sales feedback for enhanced functionality to the controller. The SC22-3/-3E is a totally configurable safety module that monitors numerous safety devices such as E-stop buttons, interlocking switches, safety light screens, two-hand controls and rope pull switches.

Both the muting and bypass functions have added/changed functionality. Directional (One-way) muting has been added with the ability to choose which mute sensor pair can begin the mute cycle; "Protective Stop" inputs are now allowed to be muted and the mute sensor debounce time can now be adjusted to delay the beginning and/or the ending of a mute cycle up to 1.5 seconds, which can help eliminate nuisance stops by allowing additional time for the Safety Input device to re-energize its outputs. Mute dependent override can now be de-selected, which allows a standard bypass function of a mutable safety input device.
