WIELAND ELECTRIC AND PR ELECTRONICS JOIN FORCES AT SAFETY SOLUTIONS
SAFE SIGNAL PROCESSING IN THE FOCUS OF COOPERATION
Wieland Electric and the Danish technology company PR electronics have agreed on a cooperation which includes close collaboration in the field of safe analogue value processing and will be officially launched at SPS 2019. As one of the leading specialists for signal processing devices, PR electronics is perfectly complementing Wieland Electric's safety portfolio with its field devices. This applies in particular to the samos® Pro Compact safety controller and its new analog input modules, whose range of applications is significantly expanded in combination with the transmitters, thermocouples, signal doublers and communication units from PR electronics.
As part of its solutions business, Wieland will offer the signal processing devices together with its safety controller, for example to be able to operate ATEX applications. The correspondingly certified field devices from PR electronics are able to convert ATEX signals in such a way that they can communicate with the samos® Pro Compact. "By cooperating with PR electronics, we can offer a complete package for safe analog value processing and, of course, open up new markets," explains Markus Kick, Global Business Development Manager Combustion Technology at Wieland Electric. A safe doubling of signals or handling thermocouples and ohmic inputs will also be possible in the future. A further advantage results from the configuration displays of PR electronics, which not only allow process value monitoring via the built-in display, but also data transmission into the cloud and thus online visualization thanks to their Modbus RTU interface.
