SATURN FAIL-SAFE REMOTE I/O


Developped in partnership with Leroy Automation, SATURN is a new platform featuring high-robustness and availability for safety solutions. Easy to configure and efficient as a railway remote I/O management solution, this platform dramatically reduces the vehicle cabling architecture and its associated cost.

*Independent Safety Assessor

A range of I/O modules, which features

> Input/output nodes (digital inputs, static outputs, relay outputs and analogue I/Os).
> Railway EN50155 Modules (24-120Vdc)
>EN50155 Railway modules (24-120Vdc)
>A single DIN41612 connector per node (IO + power + communication)
> Safety integrity level : SIL0, SIL2 et SIL4.
> SIL4 available in 2016 or before on demand
>

A concentrateur/gateway :

> The concentrator manages the ring network
> One-point communication between the platform and the end-user application
> Gateway functions for field bus (Ethernet, MVB, CAN, CANopen, RS422/RS485…)
> The concentrator supplies the electrical power to the ring network
> Safety logical functions can be integrated into the concentrator module
> A redundant concentrator used as backup module

An innovative ring network:

Two unidirectional reverse channels
> Redundant ring of power supply
> 1 ms deterministic cycle for 32 IO modules
> 100% network operability during a line failure
> Provider-consumer or master-slave protocol
> Safety protocol, internal and external
> Permanent diagnostic functions
> Up to 1.000 m between modules
Up to 12 Mb/s for 100m repetition distance
> Up to 128 modules per ring
> Power supply of modules provided by the gateway
