The solutions of KEB Automation offer a security architecture that is fully integrated into the automation system. The concept comprises three levels: The C6 Safety PLC can be used as a safety controller combined with the C6 Safety I/O for decentralised installations. Further devices are the KEB Drive Controllers. The Combivert S6-A or F6-A with the fitting Safety Module offer safe motion functionality with motion-based secure monitoring directly in the drive. The third element is the KEB engineering tool Combivis studio 6. It combines parameterisation and programming of conventional, i.e. non-safety-oriented, and safety-oriented parameters, programs and functions. Function-specific wizards provide further assistance with the work. Because of its certified architecture the C6 Safety PLC complies with highest safety requirements. Real-time communication is achieved by using EtherCAT with the Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE) certified safety protocol. The decentralised structure makes a direct installation in machines possible without additional wiring at smallest space requirements. With the Safety PLC any number of FSoE slaves can be linked, including the safety I/O module or a KEB drive controller with safety module. The protocol Safety over EtherCAT provides the possibility to control all available safety functions. Furthermore reliable measurements (i.e. velocity, position) and the switching state of the safe I/O modules can be transferred to the Safety PLC.
