Details: VAA-2E2A-CB10-SJ/E2J-FL


The VAA-2E2A-CB10-SJ/E2J-* is an AS-Interface safety module with 2 safety-related inputs and two conventional outputs. A two-channel mechanical switch or a single channel mechanical switch each can be connected to the two safety-related inputs. The outputs are conventional electronic non-safety-related outputs, which can be loaded with 100 mA in total.

The module is suitable for remote connection of switches in very limited space. The onepiece housing provides a degree of protection of IP20.

The connection to the AS-Interface cable as well as to the inputs and outputs takes place via strands with open cable ends.

To indicate the current switching state, an LED is available for each channel,mounted on top of the module. Two status LEDs are used to monitor the AS-Interface communication and indicate whether the module has the address 0.

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.
