SINAMICS Safety Integrated
Simply safe - twice the efficiency!
The SINAMICS drive family offers converters for each power and performance level. Not only this, but SINAMICS converters have the safety functions seamlessly integrated in the standard portfolio. The drives are simply linked to SIMATIC, SINUMERIK and SIMOTION controls, and through communication via PROFIsafe, are perfectly harmonized with these. This offers you shorter commissioning times and a higher cost effectiveness thanks to efficient engineering and lower wiring costs.
Episode 4 – Safety Activation Test
Today we introduce the new Safety Activation Test in SINAMICS Startdrive V17 to you. Why do you need it and how does it work?
Episode 3 – SS1 monitoring functions
What is SS1? Which variants are there? How to configure them correctly? Where are they used? We will clarify all this in this episode.
Episode 2 – PROFIsafe control
In this episode we show how to easily setup the failsafe PROFIsafe communication between F-PLC and drive.

Episode 1 – Introduction to Safety Integrated
In this episode, we answer the question why safety is important for all machine builders and what actually stands behind the term Safety Integrated.
Episode 0 – Let's get started
This episode is the prelude to the new series. Robert Bechtloff introduces himself and explains the motivation behind the series.
Integrated safety functionsFailsafe drives are characterized by their integrated safety functions, which they provide to the user as possible responses to safety-related events. The Safety Integrated Functions available in Siemens drives are subsequently described. The functional safety of all the functions satisfies the requirements defined in Part 5-2 of the international standard IEC 61800 for variable-speed drive systems. The SBT and SP functions go beyond the scope laid down in IEC 61800-5-2.
Functions to safely stop the drive
Functions for safe brake management
Functions for safely monitoring drive motion
Functions for safely monitoring the position of a drive
Our customers are convincedSignificant advantages are obtained for machine OEMs and users to the same extent by integrating safety functions in the drive. The costs to realize a safe machine are drastically reduced – and the reliability of the solution has been clearly proven in many applications around the globe.
Failsafe drive technology
The Safety Evaluation Tool provides you with swift and reliable help in assessing the safety functions of your machine. The TÜV-tested online tool for standards IEC 62061 and ISO 13849-1 gets you straight to your goal [TÜV = German technical inspectorate]. As a result you receive a standards-compliant report that can be integrated in the documentation of your system or machine as proof of safety.
