B&R Industrial Automation: Safety-related tool
With the SafeDESIGNER development and configuration tool, B&R provides an integrated safety tool for programming safety-related functions from within the Automation Studio development environment.
Complete integration of the safety technology reduces programming the safety application to virtual wiring of logical function blocks. In addition to function blocks and language elements that conform to IEC 61131-3, users have a library certified by TÜV Rheinland with 20 function blocks for machine automation available to them. All function blocks correspond to the PLCopen standard. Through virtual wiring of the function blocks, work method is clearly structured and well-arranged, finding and preventing errors early in all development phases. Transferring the safety signals via Industrial Ethernet reduces setup and service work. Programming in Automation Studio significantly reduces commissioning times.
