Certified press safety library in the TIA Portal
Stay flexible and comply with all standards for functional safety
Make automating your press safety functions as easy and cost-effective as possible. Use the certified press safety modules and benefit from considerably reduced engineering overhead. With the press safety library for the SIMATIC S7-F/P safety controller, you rely on functional and certified modules and proven expertise, perfectly documented and pretested.
Significantly faster results with the press safety libraryThe press safety library for all failsafe controllers of the SIMATIC controller family from Basic to Advanced provides you with certified function blocks and proven expertise – perfectly documented and field-tested.
The library of press safety functions can be used for automating servo presses, mechanical flywheel presses (SimaPress), and hydraulic presses. It is certified by the German Employers' Liability Insurance Association for Wood and Metal (BGHM) and complies with relevant international standards.
The tried and tested safety library in detail
This software library, which is based on more than ten years of experience and has been successively expanded, facilitates the configuration of press safety functions through pre-assembled function blocks, such as innovated brake test incl. travel measuring, safe software cam switchgear, and overtravel monitoring.
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.
