A safety control system is essential for ensuring maximum safety for man and machine. The first choice in safety automation is the failsafe SIMATIC control system from the Siemens SIMATIC Safety Integrated portfolio. This system seamlessly integrates safety control into standard control.
SIMATIC Safety Integrated - this portfolio comprises a scalable range of safety-related controllers in various designs on the basis of different hardware platforms for all sectors of factory automation - from modular controllers and embedded automation products down to PC-based controllers.
Distributed field devices from the ET 200 range are employed as fail-safe I/O. Versions for the control cabinet and versions with high degree of protection for applications without control cabinet are available - both in modular and in block design. Connection of the I/O is realized by means of PROFIsafe via PROFIBUS and/or PROFINET.
The fail-safe systems are either configured with STEP 7 Safety Advanced in the TIA Portal or as before with STEP 7 and S7 Distributed Safety. The LAD and FBD languages as well as pre-configured, certified blocks are used for safety programming.
