Safety solution for DeviceNet

Safety solution for DeviceNet Sick has launched a DeviceNet-compatible, SIL3-rated safety system that is flexible and expandable and provides distributed network I/O. With all of the elements for a safety system, users can take advantage of full component synergy and a single source of supply for hardware, services and support. With its modular design allowing scalability, users can benefit from: reduced installation costs; integration with existing devicenet networks, if required; the capability to install decentralised safety logic local to the application; and the opportunity to bridge with other control protocols. Based on a safety controller equipped with onboard safety I/O, Sick's UE4400 safety network controller devices integrate and evaluate any combination of safety input and actuator devices into DeviceNet safety networks, using local or remote safety capable inputs and outputs. By using a compact safety controller that enables DeviceNet Safety, there is no need for a PLC. System configuration is done using a graphical configuration tool and precertified function blocks and plug-ins are available to allow integration into existing third-party network configuration tools. Status, diagnostic and error information can be accessed locally or through the network.
