Tecsis Adds Safety Electronics Solution | Industry News

Safety has always been a challenge for crane operators, owners, and builders. To guarantee safety for applications such as these, tecsis is now offers an innovative safety electronics solution for manufacturers of cranes and hoisting technology with its ELMS system. The multi-function safety electronics system has a modular format, allowing it to be easily extended to protect people and systems from harm when handling heavy loads.

Additional function modules, which communicate with one another via a standard top hat rail bus with a redundant layout, can be connected to the central module. The safety electronics system is fitted with a wide range of secure analog and digital inputs and outputs, relay outputs, and semiconductor outputs as standard. Sensors that measure the forces arising at various points on a crane can be added to the system. The safety electronics system evaluates data from these force transducers and effectively prevents overload by interrupting the crane controls in a timely manner.

The ELMS safety electronics system makes it possible to create a safety system that meets the requirements set out in DIN standard EN ISO 13849-1 Cat. 3/ PL d. An integrated USB port is provided for system configuration. This new safety electronics system can be combined perfectly with tecsis redundant force transducers, for example. Typical areas of application for the new safety system include harbor logistics, shipboard and offshore cranes and many other areas of hoisting technology.
