Siemens Automation and Drives now has integrated safety functions for the Sinumerik 840D solution line control system. They meet all the requirements to SIL2 as well as PL d.

There are now sufficient safe cams available for detecting as many as 30 traversing ranges. Safe communication via standard Profibus between several Sinumerik 840D sl systems simplifies plant installation. The DP/AS-I F-Link implements a safe transition from ASIsafe to Profisafe for the first time. The compact network transition (F-Link) collects safety-related signals via the AS-i bus and transfers them via Profibus to the higher-level F controller. This enables simple and low-cost connection between the two bus systems, according to the manufacturer.
