Safety Integrated in combination with SIMOTION D435; activation of safety functions with TM54F

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

A system equipped with SINAMICS S120 drives is controlled by a SIMOTION D435. This system requires various system functions.

The SIMOTION does not provide integrated safety functions. It uses the extended safety functions integrated in the SINAMICS S120 drives.

These safety functions are activated via the failsafe Terminal Module TM54F. Failsafe signals are preprocessed in a SIMATIC F-CPU.

This functional example describes in detail how to configure the failsafe SIMATIC CPU, the safety functions integrated in the drives and the TM54F as well as the handling by SIMOTION.

This functional example is based on the SIMOTION training case and the Safety training case. The configuration must be adapted when using other hardware.
