Certain specifications must be observed when using measuring systems in combination with SINUMERIK Safety Integrated.

1-encoder system

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.

2-encoder safety

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.

Security information
In order to protect technical infrastructures, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art IT security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions constitute one element of such a concept. For more information about cyber security, please visit
