S7 F/FH Systems

Safety Lifecycle Engineering for Process Automation


The standard and safety programs are generated in the proven SIMATIC Manager – with or without SIMATIC PCS 7.  This reduces training requirements in addition to engineering costs.
You design the safety section of the program using Continuous Function Chart (CFC) or  SIMATIC Safety Matrix, the innovative and convenient tool for safety lifecycle engineering and management.
To this end, you use TÜV-certified function blocks from the library in S7 F Systems.
SIMATIC Safety Matrix operating uses the Cause & Effect methodology significantly reducing the overhead for engineering, commissioning and maintenance – with automatic compatibility with IEC 61511.

Security information

To ensure the secure operation of a plant or machine it is also necessary to take suitable preventive action (e.g. cell protection concept) and to integrate the automation and drive components into a state-of-the-art holistic industrial security concept for the entire plant or machine. Any third-party products that may be in use must also be taken into account.
