Safety CPU Unit


Integrate safety into ultra-flexible, ultra-high-speed machine automation and build a distributed safety system

• Meets EN ISO 13849-1 (PLe/Category 4) and IEC 61508 (SIL3)

• Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE) allows standard devices and safety devices to be mixed on the same EtherCAT® network

• CIP Safety™ allows standard devices and safety devices to be mixed on the same EtherNet/IP network

• Reusable safety program POUs according to IEC 61131-3 make programming more efficient

• PLCopen® Function Blocks for Safety reduce time and cost to learn safety design

• Safety I/O wiring diagrams, safety circuit programs, and user-defined Function Blocks can be automatically generated, minimizing safety design errors

• Simple Automatic Test using Offline Simulation is available. Online Functional Test ensures and maintains safety during machine commissioning and operation

* The Common Industrial Protocol (CIP™) is an industry standard open network, enabling seamless communication among
   CIP networks. CIP SafetyTM adds safety functionality to CIP networks.
* Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE): The open protocol Safety over EtherCAT (abbreviated with FSoE "Safety 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.
