Safety Integrated

For consistent system protection: SIMOCODE pro Safety

In process as well as factory automation, the fail-safe disconnection of motors grows more and more important. We need to protect humans, machines and the environment in the best possible way. The functional safety standards IEC 61508, IEC 62061 und ISO 13849-1 specify binding requirements, which have been applied with by using conventional safety relays. In doing so, users have to deal with some disadvantages: complex system concepts, high uncertainty and very limited diagnostic functions. SIMOCODE pro Safety offers the perfect solution: With the fail-safe digital module DM-F for the motor control system SIMOCODE pro, all required safety functions are easily being integrated into the motor feeders of new or existing switchgear. Thus, standard and safety functions are carried out at the same time in one system without affecting each other. In addition, the evaluation of the safety concept asked for in the safety standards will become a lot easier with SIMOCODE pro Safety. The new integrated solution also allows for detailed diagnostic information as well as the integration into an automation system via PROFIBUS/PROFINET/PROFIsafe – for transparency throughout your entire system.

SIMOCODE pro Solution local

  • Connection of a fail-safe sensor such as an EMERGENCY-STOP directly to the DM-F Local

  • Functions that can be adjusted at the module for various applications

  • Processing of the fail-safe hardware signals from an F-CPU


Application with DM-F Local: Processing of a fail-safe disconnection signal from an F-CPU or direct connection of a sensor (with PROFIBUS, Modbus and EtherNet/IP)

SIMOCODE pro Solution PROFIsafe

  • When using a fail-safe control, the disconnection signal will be processed to the DM-F PROFIsafe module via PROFIBUS/PROFINET.

Application with DM-F PROFIsafe: Processing of the fail-safe disconnection signal from an F-CPU via PROFIBUS/PROFIsafe
