System overview safety integrated

The Simatic S7-1200 controller generation has been expanded by the fail-safe CPUs. The fail-safe CPUs are suitable for standard and Safety applications in machine and plant automation.

The S7-1214 FC and S7-1215 FC have also been added to the series of fail-safe CPUs.

The S7-1214- und S7-1215-F fail-safe controllers together with the fail safe signal modules are certified for functional safety according to
EN 61508 (version 2010) and are suitable for use in safety-related applications up to SIL 3 according to IEC 62061 and PL e according to ISO 13849.

Additional password protection for the F-configuration and F-program is set up for IT security.

Identical look and feel for the engineering of safety functionalities within the TIA Portal saves time and improves security.
In the Step 7 Safety Advanced V13 engineering tool, the user creates programs with the same engineering and operating concept for standard and safety-related tasks. Data consistency functions automatically synchronize standard and safety-related program parts.
