SafePLC® MEETS DRIVE - Safety advanced®

With its integrated technology functions, the SMX & SCU series ensures fast and trouble-free implementation of the safety-related task. An extensive function library is available for the preprocessing of sensors (inputs) or actuators (outputs), especially for safe drive monitoring. By simply linking the input, monitoring and output functions by means of logic blocks, even extensive safety functions can be set up very quickly and transparently.

All functions are designed to be open with regard to the sensors, drives and actuators used. Regardless of the drive technology used, whether electric drive with vector or frequency controller, pneumatics or hydraulics, the SMX/SCU series represents the ideal solution for complete safety management in machine and plant engineering.

Network plan

When using network-based safety control, the respective network types are displayed and diagnosed.


Wiring scheme

The configuration of the safety controllers and the sensors & actuators automatically creates a wiring scheme. This can be exported to EPLAN.


Functional scheme

Functionplan-oriented programming with logic elements. The monitoring functions can be linked together by logical operators. Speeds, accelerations and positions of several axes are monitored in relation to each other. The monitoring tasks to be implemented can be distributed and documented in very clearly arranged in different pages.


Input and output elements

All command devices and sensors commonly used in safety technology, such as buttons, emergency stop, door contacts, two-hand buttons, light grids, operating mode selector switches and limit switches, are offered as preconfigured elements per icon. When inserted into the terminal scheme, these elements are assigned to the module to which it is physically connected.

Axis / encoder configuration

Depending on the safety category, one or two sensors are required for the safe speed and/or position detection of the individual axes in the network. For the configuration of the sensor type and the technical data, as well as for the axis-related resolution, a separate menu with many different input and calculation aids is provided. The determination of the correct input data is thus possible even without special prior knowledge.
