Safe switching of IO-Link motor starter combination 3RA27 with safety relay 3SK1

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)


How can you operationally switch the function module 3RA27 via IO-Link and additionally guarantee safe switching in case of an emergency?





The function module is operationally switched and powered via IO-Link. Additionally an auxiliary voltage for the contactor below to switch is required. By interrupting that auxiliary power supply as for example by an interconnected safety relay 3SK1 and a two-channel emergency stop commanding device, the contactor will switch off according to stop category 0 described in IEC 60204-1.
The use of a redundant contactor and the monitoring of the feedback circuit will allow the application to reach up to SIL 3 according to IEC 62061 or PL e according to ISO 13849-1.
