Fail-Safe Digital Twin

Configurable safety relays help prevent injuries and damage in factory automation systems by cutting off electrical power in response to data received from sensors. When a safety relay fails, the production line must be halted until the relay can be repaired or replaced, resulting in expensive downtime.

Phoenix Contact Electronics engineers use Ansys software to develop a digital twin of its safety relays that will integrate real-time sensor data with simulation results to predict failures in advance. The relay can then be replaced or repaired while the line is not operating.
