With Sinamics Startdrive commissioning software, Siemens aims to support machine builders in the validation of safety functions for Sinamics frequency converters with a guided acceptance test. With Sinamics Startdrive, Siemens offers a tool designed for the integration of drive hardware into the TIA Portal engineering framework. The integrated guided acceptance test for safety functions is available for Sinamics G and S series frequency converters and complies with EN ISO 13849-2 and IEC 62061.
The safety acceptance test is made to be user-friendly. A wizard is designed to guide the user step by step through the acceptance process and to check whether the safety functions have been parameterized correctly and executed correctly in the relevant application. For documentation purposes, a standard-compliant acceptance report is then created automatically, says the company. With the safety acceptance test integrated in Sinamics Startdrive, Siemens hopes to help machine builders carry out the legally required validation of safety functions more easily and safely.
