The Mentor M401 is a safety controller and distribution unit that provides safety input, connection, and monitoring to Kinesys and third-party automation systems. It has SIL3 safety over Ethernet at its core and can communicate with and safely control up to 60 devices at any one time. The Mentor uses the emergency stop buttons and enable switches common across the previous Mentor range. It also includes Universal Device Interface (UDI) connections that allow Elevation, DigiHoist and other legacy systems to integrate into the Mentor infrastructure.
Safe groups are central to the Mentor series 4 capabilities. This feature allows devices to be grouped together with a SIL3 rating so that an error on any one of the grouped devices will stop the entire group. Groups can be created and deleted by the user from the touchscreen interface with any changes being confirmed via a key-switch to ensure these actions are only performed by authorized personnel.
The inclusion of a Console/Pendant connector allows a Dimension Pendant to be connected directly to the Mentor making it quick and easy to get a system up and moving.
