Details: VAA-2E1A-G10-SAJ/EA2J-2M-V1-G


The VAA-2E1A-G10-SAJ-*M-V1-G is an AS-Interface safety module with 2 safety-related inputs and one conventional output. A two-channel mechanical switch or a single channel mechanical switch each can be connected to the two safety-related inputs. The output is a conventional electronic non-safety-related output, which can be loaded with 50 mA.

The module is suitable for remote connection of switches in very limited space. The onepiece housing provides a degree of protection of IP67 .

The connection to the AS-Interface cable is achieved by means of insulation piercing method of the inserted flat cables. The inputs and the output are connected via an 8-pin M12 socket.

To display the current switching state, there is a LED for each channel mounted on top of the module. A LED indicating the AS-Interface communication and the adress 0 of the module is also available. If a communication error occurs, the outputs are switched off (only at P0 = 1).

The module can be used up to Category 4/PL e according to ISO 13849-1, SIL 3 according to EN 62061. If two single-channel switches are connected, the module can be used up to Category 2/ PL c according to ISO 13849-1, SIL 1 according to EN 62061.
