Safety in the System
New solutions for functional safety technology
KEB Automation provides new solutions for functional safety technology for highly integrated machine safety with potential savings potential in terms of installation and implementation time, space and costs.
The safety architecture in the automation system is implemented on three levels:
The concept is implemented by a safety PLC, the C6 Safety PLC including FSoE master, safe inputs and outputs in the KEB I/O system, and comprehensive safety functions in the COMBIVERT S6/F6 drive controllers. Communication takes place via the EtherCAT bus with certified protocol Safety Over EtherCAT (FSoE).
KEB COMBIVERT S6 and F6 are servo systems and drive controllers with consistently identical functionality for outputs up to 315 kilowatts. “Safety ready” also applies to motors with safe encoder Options.
