POY Finalist: Motor management

Finalist in Electric Motors and Drives in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
By Edited by Chris Vavra, Plant Engineering November 1, 2011

The Simocode Pro Safety is designed to become an integrated part of a plant’s motor management system and improve worker safety. IEC 61508/62061 and ISO 13849-1 standards for functional safety up to SIL 3 or PL e are met with this product.

Additional outputs or peripheral devices can be omitted. Two different expansion modules are available, and they can be easily connected to the basic Simocode pro V device. The digital module DM-F PROFIsafe is used with a safe signal where the switch-off is generated in a fail-safe controller, and is transmitted to the motor management system via PROFIBUS/PROFIsafe.
