Functional expansion of PLCnext controllers with a left-side safety module
An efficient solution for distributed safety applications
The AXC F XT SPLC 1000 - SPLC 1000 for short - has been developed as a dedicated safety controller that is primarily used in a distributed safety system. The new module uses the black channel principle to communicate with other Profisafe devices. This safety controller can be seamlessly integrated into the PLCnext-Technology open ecosystem.
Use to the highest safety level
The SPLC 1000 is a full-fledged safety controller that meets the highest safety level (SIL 3 and PL e respectively). The SPLC contains two separate and distinct processors based on the ARM Cortex M4 architecture. The SPLC 1000 is ideally suited for the implementation of smaller distributed applications. The SPLC 1000 can operate up to 32 Profisafe devices.
Simultaneous execution of different communication paths
Although the computational intensity is decreasing in a distributed application, it is becoming increasingly important to manage additional communication paths. This is the main reason why the SPLC 1000 supports Profisafe. The SPLC can simultaneously assume both the role of Profisafe controller (F-Host) and F-Device.
Simpler programming with one unified engineering tool
Due to the small width of 45 mm for the SPLC 1000, in combination with the AXC F 2152 you have a full-fledged safety control system only 90 mm wide. Moreover, the whole is fully programmable with one programming package PLCnext Engineer. Code for the AXC F 2152 can be programmed both in IEC 61131-3 and in a higher programming language. In addition, we use the same tool to also build the safety software from standard safety blocks or in Safe-C. The safety and control software are in one project.
