To simplify the development of complex machines, Rexroth is integrating safety technology into the sercos automation network. The CIP Safety on sercos safety protocol ensures safe communication from the control unit to the drive without any additional wiring. The SafeLogic and SafeLogic compact safety controls cover all complexity levels of safety-based automation in connection with the drive-integrated SafeMotion safety functions. The user can program standard and safety functions in the same engineering environment. SafeLogic safely controls the drives for complex machines and plants, such as printing or packaging machines. The safety function module enhances all standard system solutions in the IndraMotion and IndraLogic family, turning them into control solutions with integrated safety functions. Customer-specific modifications in the standard control's program sequence thus have no feedback effects on the safety functions. CIP Safety on sercos ensures safe communication without additional wiring. Engineers use the uniform IndraWorks engineering framework for standard and safety control. Thanks to the multi-safety master functionality, SafeLogic also enables the integration of decentralized safety peripherals from various manufacturers, thereby increasing investment security. SafeLogic compact is used in compact machines and small to mid-size plants. The decentralized safety control safely activates the drive-integrated safety feature via CIP Safety on sercos. Programming is intuitive and uses a graphical editor. Users verify the functional safety using the integrated offline simulation tool.
