To the tool

Data interface

Safety Evaluation Tool provides neutral VDMA 66413 data interface

Universal data base for safety-related characteristic values. The Safety Evaluation Tool makes it possible to import characteristic values from other manufacturers and use them for calculation (as long as the manufacturer provides them in the library).

Importing safety-related parameters

The Safety Evaluation Tool can be used to import characteristic values from third party products in VDMA 66413 XML format and use them for calculation. An overview of the security-related parameters of the Safety Integrated products from Siemens is available as a downloadable PDF for your calculation procedures. Simply choose“Product parameters” in the menu of the Safety Evaluation Tool.” This overview is provided without warranty. The safety parameters of Siemens products for import into other tools are available as an XML file at the bottom of this webpage.

Unified data interface

The standard sheet VDMA 66413 “Functional Safety – Universal data format for safety-related values of components or parts of control systems” describes a standardized electronic exchange format for safety-related parameters of automation components. The aim of the standard sheet is to provide the safety parameters in a consistent format for calculation tools in the interest of the users. 

 

Siemens collaborated extensively on defining the universal data format alongside other manufacturers and test agencies, such as IFA (Industrial Safety Institute of the DGUV), TÜV Rheinland, and TÜV SÜD.

 

Data import in the SET is performed using the additional menu item “Safety-related product library,” which enables users to import third party VDMA 66413 XML files. Of course, it is also possible to enter safety-relevant product data manually.
