With our products and services, you benefit from our many years of experience in the integration of safe communications solutions based on IEC 61508. Here, IXXAT offers one of the most extensive product portfolios on the market for the implementation of safety – from quickly and easily implemented modular solutions to flexible stacks.
All safety products have been developed together with the TÜV and appropriately precertified on reference platforms.
IXXAT Safe T100
The IXXAT Safe T100 offers device manufacturers an easy way to control safe I/O signals using a safe field bus protocol. The module meets the SIL3 safety requirement level as defined by IEC 61508 and Performance Level PLe / Category 4 in IEC 13849-1.
It is used in customer devices together with a communication module of the Anybus CompactCom series, which is used to implement the unsafe bus connection. Safety communications use the black channel principle through the Anybus CompactCom communication module. For PROFIsafe, for example, the communication module carries out the tasks of a PROFINET I/O device. The IXXAT Safe T100/PS implements the PROFIsafe layer and the safe control of three dual-channel inputs, as well as one dual-channel output. The module's very compact dimension and flexible Safety I/O routing make it perfect for integration into customer-specific device solutions.
IXXAT Safe Protocol Software
The IXXAT CIP Safety software can be used to implement CIP Safety Targets (slaves) and CIP Safety Originator (master) devices based on EtherNet/IP or Sercos up to SIL-3. All necessary adapter modules for use on Sercos as a non-safe communication protocol are available, including those for connection to the Sercos stack and Sercos IP.
Your transition into CIP Safety technology is made easier by an included PC demo that provides a clear overview of the application options and functionality of a target and an originator.
The very slim implementation of the IXXAT FSoE protocol software is notable for its efficient protocol processing which is essential for safe drive applications and other applications up to SIL-3.
The FSoE software permits parallel instantiation of both slave and master functionality. This opens up a variety of communication options for safe applications.
Due to the qualified development processes employed, IXXAT meets the increased requirements for the development of safety-relevant software in compliance with IEC 61508.
We support you in all phases of development, from the design phase with consulting on integration options for our safety protocol stack and the IXXAT Safe T100, to the development of safety hardware and software, to the certification and delivery of complete devices
