The Bernecker and Rainer (B&R) SafeDESIGNER development and configuration tool makes programming safety-related applications from within the Automation Studio development environment possible.
Thanks to total integration of the safety technology, programming safety-related applications is now reduced to virtual wiring of logical function blocks, thus eliminating fixed-wired safety circuits.
PLCopen and IEC conformity
In addition to language elements and function blocks that conform to IEC 61131-3, users have a library certified by TÜV Rheinland with 20 function blocks for machine automation, all of which correspond to the PLCopen standard. Through virtual wiring of the logical function blocks, the user profits from a well structured and arranged work method. With this, errors can be found and prevented early in all development phases.
The safety application created in SafeDESIGNER is processed in a safe controller, called SafeLOGIC, which supports cycle times starting at 1 ms and connection of up to 100 peripheral devices.
Optimized commissioning times
Transferring the safety signals via Industrial Ethernet reduces setup and service work. In addition, programming safety-related applications in Automation Studio reduces commissioning times considerably.
