Standard and safety control combined

Standard and safety control combined Rockwell Automation has introduced a safety controller that uses the company's integrated architecture, allowing for faster implementation, improved productivity and easier ability to meet advanced safety control requirements. The Allen-Bradley GuardLogix controller has a two-processor safety architecture and is rated up to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 functionality. SIL 2 and SIL 3 are the most common levels required in machinery and process safety applications, making the controller suitable for many safety applications. The safety controllers are based on the same Logix control engine, networking and I/O as other Rockwell integrated architecture control systems. This design commonality, along with using the standard RSLogix 5000 software, allows for better information sharing, reduced training costs and faster programming and commissioning. The architecture features multidisciplined control across process, discrete, motion, drive and safety applications, as well as seamless connectivity to plant-wide information systems. The GuardLogix controllers take advantage of CIP Safety on DeviceNet for safety I/O connectivity and EtherNet/IP for safety interlocking between Guard Logix processors. This allows multiple controllers to share safety data for safe interlocking between different cells and areas.
