Rockwell Automation Launches Allen-Bradley® Guardmaster® 440C-CR30 Safety Relay

The new Allen-Bradley Guardmaster 440C-CR30 Safety Relay launched by Rockwell Automation, is a flexible, cost-effective and easy-to-use configurable safety relay ideal for applications requiring 4 to 10 safety circuits and control of up to 5 zones.  The Guardmaster 440C-CR30 Safety Relay is configured through Connected Components Workbench™ software–the same programming environment used by the Micro800 family of controllers, PanelView™ component HMIs and PowerFlex® drives– for simple and seamless programming of standard and safety logic in separate devices.

The distinct graphical user interface and drag-and-drop capabilities of Connected Components Workbench software help guide users through a simple process of selecting certified safety function blocks for the Guardmaster 440C-CR30 Safety Relay. This means users can create, control and monitor a safety system in the same software environment as their standard control, resulting in increased productivity and reduced programming time.
