Connection of measuring systems in combination with SINUMERIK Safety Integrated
Update on May 20, 2016: Revised attachment
Certain specifications must be observed when using measuring systems in combination with SINUMERIK Safety Integrated.
For a 1-encoder system, the motor encoder is used for safety-related actual values. The actual values are generated in a safety-related fashion either directly in the encoder or in a Sensor Module and are provided - with no-reaction - to the NCK and the drive via DRIVE-CLiQ. The motor encoder (linear scale) of linear motors also acts as load measuring system.
In this case, the safety-related actual values for an axis are supplied from 2 separate encoders/measuring systems.
In the system the individual configurations are described and information is provided on where to find safety-capable encoders and measuring systems.
