B&R adds new functions to SafeDESIGNER for safe speed and data
January 8, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
January 8, 2019 – B&R has created new mapp functions in SafeDESIGNER, for the creation of safety applications.
It is also possible to use a combination of data from the standard application to generate safety-relevant data.
The Data-to-SafeDATA function determines a safe speed and a safe position using data from the standard application. This is done by comparing speed and position data from two standard (non-safety) X20DC1196 I/O modules.
With the help of the functions provided, the data can be used as the safe speed for applications up to PL d and the safe position for applications up to PL c .
With advanced mathematics functions, the functions make complex calculations in an application. All data is calculated as fixed point numbers. The user does not need to worry about rounding, resolution or buffer overflow errors.
