In safety technology, components must be easy to handle and safe to operate. With PC Worx Engineer, it is possible to perform both the standard PLC programming and the programming of all safety functions in one editor. In a project, the PLC and safety programming is then installed on the controller. The programming unpacks on its own and automates the programs in two parts – the PLC code and the safety code.
With PLCnext Technology, two additional safe processors are available in the control technology in addition to a multicore processor for the PLC program. These safety processors are from two different manufacturers. The safety program is executed with redundant diversity to increase failsafe performance. This makes this solution even safer and innovatively protects humans and machines.
