Safety at any cost – without cost

At Agritechnica CrossControl will show case CrossFire SX - a new safety certified I/O controller. With its I/O flexibility and range of options for software programming, CrossFire SX offers OEMs and system developers an open platform for easy design of safe machine control systems.

The controller is based on a modern ARM Cortex R4 Safety CPU, enabling an efficient implementation of safety functionality. The result is a safe controller, meeting ISO 13849 PL d and IEC61131 SIL2 safety requirements, at the cost of a non-safe controller.

CrossFire SX has 16 inputs and 16 outputs, all totally configurable in terms of I/O type. Inputs support Digital, Current, Frequency and Voltage on different levels. Outputs support High and Low Current outputs, PWM, PWMi, Digital HS/LS and H-bridge.

CrossFire SX is freely programmable in either C or CoDeSys. It has CANopen Safety and a set of safety features that make it easy for system developers to implement safety functions. The controller features 3 CAN interfaces supporting either CANopen or SAE J1939.

With an attractive cost per I/O channel and a compact and robust design, CrossFire SX makes it possible to design a distributed control system, and gain all the technical and performance benefits such a system brings, while keeping system cost low.

Meet us at Agritechnica, in hall 15 stand J04!
