As of now the product SIMATIC Safe Kinematics V2.0 is available for sale and delivery.

With SIMATIC Safe Kinematics, movement in space of predefined kinematics with up to 12 interpolating axes can be monitored safely. The following monitoring functions are available:
  • Safe velocity monitoring
    With safe velocity monitoring you monitor the cartesian velocity of individual kinematics points, e.g. at the Tool Center Point or at joints.
  • Safe zone monitoring
    With safe zone monitoring you monitor the position of the kinematics in the cartesian space, e.g. to limit the travel range of the kinematics or to monitor areas that can be entered by operating staff.
  • Safe orientation monitoring
    With safe orientation monitoring you monitor the orientation of the flange at an user-defined kinematics, e.g.  the operation on a workpiece may only be enabled if the tool is vertical to the floor.

The following kinematics are supported:
  • Cartesian portal 
  • Roller picker (vertical and horizontal)
  • Delta picker
  • Articulated arm 
  • User-defined serial kinematic

SIMATIC Safe Kinematics V2.0 is an option package of the TIA Portal and is installed as a setup in TIA Portal V16 as of update 1.
