SafeLOGIC openSAFETY controller for use on Profinet

B&R's SafeLOGIC safety controller is now available for use on Profinet networks, which means that Smart Safe Reaction technology can be quickly and easily integrated into Profinet automation applications.

Based on openSAFETY, B&R's Smart Safe Reaction product set is claimed to be the only integrated safety system that can guarantee response times of 10ms, which is 10 times faster than previous systems. The openSAFETY real-time safety bus system is not bound to a single network protocol and can be used on all conventional Ethernet-based fieldbuses up to SIL 3.

In industries where Profinet has established itself as the most prevalent fieldbus network, there is considerable interest in open safety technology. With the innovative and high-performance features that Smart Safe Reaction technology can provide in combination with openSAFETY, user requirements can now also be met on automated machines and systems that use Profinet.

B&R meets this demand with a SafeLOGIC safety controller model for Profinet. It enables safety-related application programs to be implemented and also monitors the overall configuration of the application, including its parameters.

The application 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. This includes, for example, PLCopen-compliant and TUV-certified function blocks, secure digital and analogue input signals, safe temperature signal detection, and more.

SafeLOGIC controllers can also, of course, handle signals from openSAFETY components such as light curtains, laser scanners and variable-frequency drives from other manufacturers.
