SIMATIC Safety Integrated - Failsafe and standard automation with a single controller!



When it comes to protecting operators, safety is a top priority for your new production machines. Therefore, you should rely on the modern controllers and other hard and software of SIMATIC Safety Integrated. Find out why so many machine builders have been using these parts for more than a decade now.
 

One single controller, one single tool, one single network

With a controller from the SIMATIC Safety Integrated portfolio you create both a standard and a failsafe program inside a single automation solution. Both are seamlessly integrated within the same components. 

Using SIMATIC STEP 7 Safety within TIA Portal you only have to master a single – intuitive – tool. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. 
 

Less effort, fewer costs

Thanks to the use of PROFIsafe you spend less time on wiring and its planning, compared to the use of conventional safety relays.

You can simulate the complete PLC program, including the safety functions, in PLCSIM or PLCSIM Advanced. In that way you accelerate commissioning and reduce the costs and risks for a quick time to market.
 

More flexibility

SIMATIC Integrated Safety activates the safety functions of a SIMATICS drive through the PROFINET or PROFIsafe standards. This is useful, for example, when the drive is inside an automatic guided vehicle (AVG). For easier maintenance you can, for instance, use mobile HMIs with built-in palm buttons for a safe shutdown of the machine.
 

​​​​​​​Less downtime

When you use SIMATIC Safety Integrated not every error code has to end in a complete shutdown. You can quickly identify and solve problems thanks to detailed and clear diagnostic messages of the standardised diagnostic functions. Moreover, there is no longer a need to completely stop the machine in case of maintenance.

With functions such as Safe Limited Speed, which ensures that an installation switches to a reduced and safe speed, you can carry out minor maintenance work while the machine remains in operation. 

And should you want to apply predictive or remote maintenance, you can easily analyse the data of your installation. You gather all the system information through that single controller or directly through PROFINET. This immediately shows you the complete picture of the machine, including the safety features.
 

Want to get started immediately with SIMATIC Safety Integrated? Go for the starter kit

Even the SIMATIC S7-1200 series already offers the safety features of SIMATIC Safety Integrated. You save costs and gain efficiency immediately.

​​​​​​​Curious? Then opt for a starter kit of the SIMATIC S7-1200 controller with SIMATIC Safety Integrated, the ideal starting point.

    The fluorescent tube goes out!
    The most striking measure is the phasing out of obsolete fluorescent lamps, such as T2, T8 and T12 (popularly known as TL tubes). Also notable is the phasing out of halogen lamps and compact fluorescent lamps (popularly known as low-energy lamps). These lighting sources must be replaced because they are not energy-efficient and because there are sufficient energy-efficient alternatives on the market. With this measure, the commission aims to save almost 42 TWh in 2030.

    That sounds safe
    The PSENmlock door handle module gives you a handle with an integrated actuator and an integrated escape release – perfect for the safety gate system PSENmlock. The yellow handle (outside) enables extension of the actuator to open or close the gate. The escape release is operated with the red handle (inside). The PSENmlock door handle module is suitable for fitting on the inside and the outside of the gate as well as for right-hinged and left-hinged gates. It has a locking insert for up to five locks to prevent the machine from restarting and can be used with the coded and fully coded PSENmlock switches.

    You'd rather know in advance
    Components of an automation system are normally used for a very long time during their life cycle. It is therefore questionable whether the component is still available in the event of failure. It is therefore important to manage the life cycle proactively. Timely information about the availability of spare parts, for example, is one of the most important planning criteria here.

    Grip on your production process
    Although the provisioning of care homes is often well organised, on the flip side there is sometimes still room for improvement, especially where hygiene processes are concerned. With that in mind, Jop van Haaren, director and owner of Less2Care from Raalte, set out to work ten years ago. The result? The VacuSan: an automated solution for the safe vacuum sealing and disposal of used incontinence materials. The electronic parts of the operating system are delivered as a kit – a customer-specific package – by itsme. “As a customer you don’t need to worry about it anymore.”
