Economical Safety Control for Compact Machine


The new SafeLogic compact safety control: modular, economical, and easy to configure.

Rexroth enhances its solutions for functional safety with SafeLogic compact

The new, programmable SafeLogic compact safety control from Rexroth enables economical, safe, standards-compliant logic processing in compact machines and small to medium-sized plants in confined spaces. The modular safety control meets the requirements for SIL 3 i.a.w. EN 62061 and Cat. 4 PL e i.a.w. EN ISO 13849-1 and is ideal for all areas of factory automation. The modular solution grows with the scope of periphery signals, is easily configured, and can be programmed via graphical wiring for function blocks.

The provider of comprehensive drive and control technologies enhances its solution portfolio for integrated safety technology with SafeLogic compact. The modular safety control comprises a safety CPU, I/Os and relays, and interface modules.

The SafeLogic Designer engineering tool assists in planning, programming, and commissioning for quick and easy adaptation to the individual application. To configure periphery, the user simply assigns the sensors and actuators to the inputs and outputs by dragging and dropping them from the library. In assigning periphery components, the user defines the parameter settings required for evaluation and error detection. A comprehensive function block library simplifies standards-compliant implementation via graphical wiring. Integrated offline simulation facilitates troubleshooting and verifying the application. The reporting function makes it easier to provide complete documentation for validating.

The system is designed to provide the highest level of user friendliness possible in line with the motto "The simpler, the better". This applies to the entire lifecycle of components up to and including servicing. All information is saved to a memory stick and can be easily transferred to the new control in cases that require a component to be exchanged.

SafeLogic compact can be quickly integrated in the overall automation process. Safety switches, contactors, valves, and the safety functions offered by the IndraDrive electric drive series can be connected directly. Interface modules such as PROFIBUS and PROFINET enable the exchange of control and status information between the safety and standard control.

Up to four SafeLogic compact controls can also be securely networked to exchange safety-relevant data.
