Through the fieldbus-neutral safety protocol, the TwinSAFE devices can be integrated into any desired fieldbus system. With the TwinSAFE I/O modules, safety technology can be integrated seamlessly into the terminal segment, and safe signals can be arbitrarily mixed with standard signals. The encapsulation and decoupling of individual production or manufacturing cells is considerably simplified by the TwinSAFE system because safety components can be placed precisely at the points where safety functions are required. This reduces the expenditure for project engineering, installation and material, and maintenance is also simplified by faster diagnostics and the replacement of only a few components. System extensions or changeovers can be implemented quickly and without wiring effort. On account of the openness and fieldbus neutrality, any data transmission medium and link can be used with Safetyover-EtherCAT: in addition to different fieldbuses, media converters between copper and optical fibre physics and between copper and radio can be used as well as transmission concepts such as data light barriers. Scalable safety technology Regardless of the complexity of the safety application, TwinSAFE is equally suited to small, local or central projects or to the decentralised networking of safety-related signals across different areas, plant parts and modules. Using TwinSAFE, all safety functions can be programmed or configured on the universal TwinCAT engineering platform. TwinSAFE seamlessly integrates safety functionality into the standard control platform, from the PLC to the I/Os to the drive technology. TwinSAFE can be used both as a stand-alone system and as a decentralised controller: Local | The TwinSAFE Compact Controller The all-in-one solution for local safety applications is the EK1960 TwinSAFE Compact Controller. It integrates a complete safety controller including I/O level with 20 safe digital inputs and 10 safe digital outputs. The EK1960 can manage up to 128 TwinSAFE connections. For flexible adaptation to different safety tasks, the EK1960 can be extended by further TwinSAFE I/Os and drive components via the TwinSAFE protocol. Local | Combination of safe and standard I/Os Safe signals and standard signals in automation technology can be mixed in a single system with the CX8000, CX5000 and CX9000 Embedded PCs as well as the small controllers from the BX series. The KL6904 safe logic and combinations of KL1904 safe inputs and KL2904 safe outputs can be placed anywhere in the Bus Terminal segment. According to the same principle a larger selection of components is available in the EtherCAT Terminal system. Decentralised | Safety beyond EtherCAT The safe EtherCAT terminals are suitable for more complex topologies with a decentralised layout, since TwinSAFE fully leverages the performance capacity of EtherCAT. The safe logic is mapped by the EL6900 TwinSAFE Logic, which links the EL190x digital inputs and the EL290x digital outputs. In a decentralised safety solution, the terminals can be distributed throughout the entire network and, through the EtherCAT Box EP1908-0002, even into IP 67 areas. Motion Control | EtherCAT Servo Drives with integrated safety Safe drive functions are implemented simply with TwinSAFE using the AX58xx TwinSAFE drive option cards for the AX5000 EtherCAT Servo Drive or the ordering option -0100 or -0200 for the AX8000 multi-axis servo system. The AX5801 option card and the ordering option -0100 include STO and SS1 functions. The function is controlled via a safe output and is wired separately. STO and SS1 can also be activated via FSoE in the case of the -0100. The AX5805/AX5806 option card and the ordering option -0200 are able to switch the motor torque-free or to monitor speed, We reserve the right to make technical changes.

No further devices such as contactors or circuit breakers are necessary in the supply lines for this. The safe drive technology communicates directly with the TwinSAFE components in the network via the servo drive. Furthermore, the AX8000 multi-axis servo drive encompasses new functions of safe drive technology with TwinSAFE: With the ordering options -0100 and -0200, the AX8108, AX8118 and AX8206 axis modules feature a programmable TwinSAFE Logic corresponding to an EL6910 and enable the direct implementation of a safety application in the servo drive. Depending on the application, the safety-oriented information can be pre-processed directly in the drive so that the central TwinSAFE Logic need only process the information that is aggregated there. PC-based Safety | Safety technology on a standard Industrial PC The topologies presented so far use a hardware TwinSAFE Logic component as the core of the safety application. The TwinCAT Safety PLC transfers the safety application to a standard Industrial PC. In this way a SIL 3 safety application according to IEC 61508 (ed. 2) or category 4, PL e according to EN ISO 13849-1:2015 can be implemented within the standard TwinCAT 3 runtime environment. Unlike the TwinSAFE Logic hardware components, the TwinCAT Safety PLC cannot be configured with pre- certified function blocks. The safety application can be implemented here in the safety-oriented high-level language Safety C, allowing higher complexity of a safety application.
