SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety Advanced V11

Option for seamless safety integration

Description

All configuration and programming tools required for generating a safety-oriented program are integrated into the STEP 7user interface and use a common project structure. Using the SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety Advanced V11 option, you can exploit all the advantages of the TIA Portal for your fail-safe automation as well.

  • Intuitive operation and the same operating concept as for the generation of standard programs permit a quick entry into the generation of fail-safe programs

  • The same configuration of the F-system as for the standard automation system

  • Ready-to-start: F-runtime group is set up automatically on insertion of the F-CPU

  • Creation of the safety program in the FBD or LAD programming languages

  • Thanks to the integrated library with TÜV-certified function blocks, safety functions can easily be implemented

  • In connection with special signatures for the device parameters, the library concept supports in-house standardization and simplifies the validation of safety-oriented applications

  • The Safety Administration Editor provides central support for the administration, display and modification of safety related parameters

  • Standardized and integrated identification of safety-related resources simplify the overview

 
STEP 7 Safety Advanced is the seamless integration of safety into the TIA Portal.
Safety-oriented programs can, however,still be generated using STEP 7 and Distributed Safety. Programs created with STEP 7 Distributed Safety can be migrated into the TIA Portal at any time. Both engineering tools offer commands, operations and blocks for safety-related programs in the LAD and FBD languages.To this end, there is a library with pre-prepared, TÜV acceptedblocks for safety-related functions. You do not need additional engineering expertise, because the programming is done in the traditional STEP 7 environment.

Error detection functions and safety checks when generating the safety program are also supported, as is the comparison of safety programs. Apart from the safety program, a standard program can also be run on the same CPU.
