July 4, 2013

We have introduced Safety Control Units NX-SL/SI/SO.
Integration of Safety into Machine Automation Enables Simple, Flexible System Configuration.
  • EN ISO13849-1 (PLe/Safety Category4), IEC 61508 (SIL3) certified.
  • One connection using Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE) * protocol enables flexible configuration by mixing the Safety Units with standard NX I/O.
  • Hardware and safety circuits can be configured using the Sysmac Studio (Ver. 1.07)

* Safety over EtherCAT (FsoE): The open protocol Safety over EtherCAT (abbreviated with FSoE "FailSafe over EtherCAT") defines a safety related communication layer for EtherCAT. Safety over EtherCAT meets the requirements of IEC 61508 SIL 3 and enables the transfer of safe and standard information on the same communication system without limitations with regard to transfer speed and cycle time.
