Safe machines – quick and easy using certified products
Our product range for safe machines
Future-proof solutions for machine safety, with a certified, comprehensive product range for all safety tasks in the manufacturing industry: thanks to Safety Integrated. Functional safety of machines and plant can be implemented, expanded and upgraded much faster thanks to the integration of safety technology in standard automation systems, and the use of flexible and modular products and systems.
Improved safety – quick and easySafety Integrated: the best possible machine safety with no additional hardware. The consistent integration if safety functions in our automation components ensures optimal safety without requiring additional hardware. With the easy engineering in TIA Portal you can save and can also meet all requirements thanks to the scalability.
Easy and compact – with no additional hardware
The safety functions are directly integrated into the drive, and need no additional hardware. They can be expanded for use with different applications in full compliance with standards. This compact solution needs less space and wiring, and makes the tasks of engineering and commissioning easier.
Totally Integrated Automation in the Digital Enterprise
Digitalization is transforming our world – and with it, the production methods used by leading companies, which have to respond to increasingly individual customer requests. To be able to satisfy them, plant operators need to cut their time to market and become more and more efficient and flexible, with no impact on quality. It is no longer enough just to optimize the automation process. Digitalization offers potentials for optimization all along the value chain, including machine safety.
SINAMICS with Safety Integrated
SINAMICS drives from Siemens require no external safety components, as the safety technology is integrated into the converters as a fixed component, reducing the number of components and wiring costs.
Communication via PROFIsafe ideally coordinates the way the SINAMICS drives work together with the fail-safe SIMATIC control system, as well as SINUMERIK and SIMOTION, and this is very easy to implement via the TIA Portal. In addition to the best possible safety for humans and machines, Safety Integrated in SINAMICS drives improves productivity by reducing downtimes, and can be flexibly applied throughout the mechanical engineering and plant construction industry.
Seamless integrated safety technology for improved safety and productivity
Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) with Safety Integrated lets you make safe and productive machines much more easily and cost-effectively – from controllers, periphery, HMI and drives to engineering, in every industry.
Safety Integrated gives you integrated safety functions at both hardware and software level that provide you with many benefits during installation, and maximum availability coupled with the maximum possible safety.
Safe operation and monitoring with SIMATIC HMI
The SIMATIC HMI portfolio offers the right safety solution in every performance class: from Basic HMI with pre-packaged key panels to Advanced HMI Panel-based with mobile panels, and PC-based with Panel PC and Software Controller.
You get real added value from the integrated safety functionality with fail-safe transmission of safety-related signals via PROFIsafe. SIMATIC HMI PRO Extension Units with emergency shutoff functionality, for example, can be connected to control units very easily and flexibly, with minimum space requirements.
Maximum flexibility, safety integrated and intuitive operation
SIMATIC HMI Mobile Panels 2nd generation offer even more performance, flexibility, convenience and quality – making mobile operation and monitoring even safer and more efficient.
The F versions with emergency stop and a stop button on the top and an acknowledgment button on the back of the device allow the safety solution to be flexibly configured. The emergency stop button is active, and lights up in red, only when the device has been incorporated in a safety circuit.
Keypad operator panels with safety-related functionality
With the help of the integrated PROFIsafe communication, this Key Panel can be used for fail-safe operation with SIMATIC S7 failsafe CPUs. The additional fail-safe inputs can be used for failsafe signals, e.g. sensors with floating contacts.
An emergency stop button according to SIL 3 can be connected to the two failsafe inputs of the KP 8F, the KP32F with its 4 failsafe inputs even handle two emergency stop buttons.
Extension Units for SIMATIC HMI PRO devices with Safety Integrated
Extension Units PROFINET und PROFISafe verfügen über zwei PROFINET-fähige Onboard-Ethernet-Schnittstellen und können durch die integrierte Switch-PROFINET and PROFIsafe Extension Units have two PROFINET-capable onboard Ethernet interfaces and can be integrated directly into existing automation networks by means of the integral switch functionality. Thanks to this switch, the PROFINET cables can be looped through with the SIMATIC HMI PRO device. The signals of the standard operator controls are transmitted via PROFINET.
For the PROFINET version, the safety-related signals from the emergency stop buttons are transmitted through the terminal strip on the back of the communication module of the Extension Unit. The maximum of two emergency stop buttons are hardwired with an F-CPU or an F-I/O module.
With the PROFIsafe versions, the safety-related signals from the emergency stop buttons are transmitted to the F-PLC via PROFIsafe.
Safe industrial controls
SIRIUS is the industrial control technology from Siemens. It provides everything you need for a consistent and cost-effective safety chain in basic safety applications: from detecting to evaluating and reacting.
For example, the SIRIUS 3SK safety relays can be used to implement both local and integrated safety functions very easily, since they work together perfectly with both sensor technology and actuators.
The growth of digitalization in businesses and the associated networking are opening up huge potential in almost all areas. Safety Integrated uses your current network structure for the safety-relevant data.
PROFINET – the leading industrial Ethernet standard for automation – and the proven fieldbus systems PROFIBUS and AS-Interface help you to create consistent, integrated processes and set up networked interfaces.
Profile communication (such as PROFIsafe, PROFIdrive or PROFIenergy) can be integrated without additional cabling costs. Everything uses one cable; a secondary structure is not required.
PROFINET – the leading industrial Ethernet standard for automation – also supports safety-related communications in the form of PROFIsafe.
In addition to the huge potential for savings in wiring, the flexibility of PROFINET/PROFIsafe means that using it provides totally new opportunities like secure wireless connections over WLAN.
This applies both to vertical communication between controllers and devices and horizontal communication between controllers.
AS-Interface (AS-i) is an effective and powerful bus system which connects all sensors and actuators on the lowest field level with the higher-level control, easily, safely and consistently.
The safety-related version of AS-Interface facilitates the transmission of standard and secure data on one and the same bus system – TÜV-certified, up to PL e / Cat. 4 or SIL 3.
