Safely cutting costs

Integrated safety functions in the feeder unit

Nürnberg, (PresseBox) - The drive and automation specialist Baumüller is now offering a new safety solution for the stackable converter generation b maXX 5000. Here the electric motors are no longer shut off in a decentralized process in the individual motor converters but centrally, with one of the STO modules (Safe Torque Off) integrated into the feeder unit.

As a standard, the safety function for drive systems is integrated decentralized in the individual motor current converters. When the electric motors are equipped with just a centrally switched STO control unit, the installation and wiring expenditures of the drive system are reduced, resulting in lower manufacturing costs.

The new safety concept fulfills the safety requirements SIL 2 according to IEC61508 or PLd, Category 3 according to DIN EN ISO 13849-1 and can be used for all applications where the feeder units and axis units have the same STO requirements.
