With Shared Device different controllers access one IO device and share the (sub)modules of the IO device. With STEP 7 Safety Advanced V13 SP1 and higher access can also be made to a SINAMICS with drive-based safety.

By using a Standard CPU and an F-CPU from S7-400 and a SINAMICS S120 drive you can run Shared Device with SIMATIC Safety V13 SP1 (see figure below):
