'Smart Safe Reaction' with openSAFETY for Profinet
08 December 2011
Now that B&R's SafeLOGIC safety controller is available for Profinet networks, Smart Safe Reaction technology can be quickly and easily integrated into Profinet based automation applications. Based on openSAFETY, B&R's Smart Safe Reaction product set guarantees response times of 10ms, which is ten times faster than previous systems. The openSAFETY real-time safety bus can be used on all conventional Ethernet-based fieldbus network systems up to SIL 3.
B&R's SafeLOGIC safety controller model for Profinet allows execution of the safety-related application program and also monitors the overall application configuration, including its parameters.
The application residing on the Profinet master CPU has full access to the signals in the network, regardless of whether standard or safety-related channels are affected. The SafeLOGIC controller also uses openSAFETY to monitor the system and shut it down if a safety requirement is not met.
A wide range of proven functions from the Smart Safe Reaction portfolio is available for implementation, including PLCopen-compliant and TÜV-certified function blocks, secure digital and analogue input signals, safe temperature signal detection, and much more.
