Safety Technology

By SEW-EURODRIVE

Drive engineering from SEW-EURODRIVE meets the challenge of avoiding industrial accidents while maintaining troublefree and economical system operation. Compliance with EN 13849-1, intended to minimise the risk posed to people by technical equipment, allows for the installation of system control that monitor the production process instead of switching it off. The control systems applied must satisfy the relevant requirements regarding safety and performance level.

MOVISAFE®

MOVISAFE® UCSB enables monitoring of speed, velocity, standstill, direction and emergency stop.

- Multi-axis capable
- Certified according to SIL3 (IEC 61508 and IEC62061)
- Can be used up to cat. 4/PL (IN ISO 138491)

Functional safety made by SEW-EURODRIVE enables:

- User-friendly programming interface
- Function modules and fail-safe IOs within the unit can be linked as required
- Fail-safe logic controller on board

Safety Brakes

In a safe brake system, various safety functions can be implemented according to the EN ISO 13849-1 standard.

-SBC (safe brake control)
-SBA (safe brake actuation)
-SBH (safe brake hold)

FS-Brake: Safety rated brakes integrated into the DR motor series, available as brake sizes BE05-BE122.

Safety Encoders

In a safe encoder system, various safety functions can be implemented according to the EN ISO 13849-1 standard.

-SLS (safety limited speed)
-SLP (safely limited position)
-SDI (safe direction)

FS-Encoder: Safety rated encoders integrated into the DR motor series, available sizes range from DR71-DR315
