B&R implements library of PLCopen function blocks

B&R implements library of PLCopen function blocks

With the SafeDESIGNER library for press applications, B&R is one of the first manufacturers to offer a complete set of the function blocks specified in PLCopen part 4. As a result, users working with safety-critical press applications will have a much easier time setting up the necessary safety functions

Over the past several years, PLCopen has worked intensively on a specification for function blocks in press applications, with B&R playing an instrumental role in this development. The result is part 4 of the PLCopen safety specification, which defines safety aspects of mechanical, electrical and hydraulic presses. Also defined in this specification were the corresponding vendor-independent function blocks for the safety application.

PLCopen specifications provide solutions for machine manufacturers that are open to all, not just a few manufacturers. The PLCopen Safety working group brings together engineers from leading industrial automation companies as well as experts from certifying institutions who work closely with safety-related technology. For many years now, B&R has been involved in this consortium.
