Safety integrity level SIL3/PLe

This is how you get a SIL3/PLe certificate for your press

In order to enable consistently high machine safety, Siemens developed a particular safety concept: Safety Integrated. It’s based on collecting signals with sensors and control devices, evaluating data with safety controls, and reacting through actuators like frequency converters and servo drives. With Safety Integrated, you don’t require additional hardware because all safety functions are already integrated into the automation components. Our experts are looking forward to supporting you with taking your presses to safety integrity level SIL3/PLe.
