Pre-engineered safety functions for machines


Pre-engineered safety functions for machines

Machinery safety functions – be it an E-stop, guarding, or presence sensing function – require multiple elements including a sensor or input device, a logic device, and an output device. Together, these elements provide a level of protection calculated by performance level as outlined in (EN) ISO 13849-1.

These safety function documents each provide guidance for a specific safety function based on functional requirement, equipment selection, and performance level requirement, including set-up and wiring, configuration, verification and validation plan, and calculation of performance level.

Note: Many of these safety functions are created with contactors selected for the output device. If you wish to use other devices such as variable frequency drives, servo drives or pneumatic actuators, please select the appropriate function from the ‘Subsystem functions’ tab.


Cat 3, PLd Stop using Programmable Controller and Safety Mat

Cat 3, PLd Stop using Programmable Controller and Safety Mat

This system is designed using a Compact GuardLogix® controller and POINT Guard I/O™ module to monitor a 440F safety mat. This application technique assumes the use of a dual-channel safety mat shorted together whenever the safety mat is stepped on allowing operation.

Stop Cat. 0 with a 440F Safedge Profile and a GuardLogix Integrated Safety Controller

Stop Cat. 0 with a 440F Safedge Profile and a GuardLogix Integrated Safety Controller

This safety function application technique explains how to wire, configure, and program a GuardLogix® controller and POINT Guard I/O™ module to monitor a 440F Safedge™ profile without the requirement for a Safedge controller. If a demand is placed on the Safedge profile, or a fault is detected in the safety function, the GuardLogix controller deenergizes the final control device, in this safety function, a redundant pair of 100S contactors.

Actuator Subsystems – Stop Cat. 0 via Kinetix 5000 Servo Drives with Hardwired Safe Torque Off Safety Function

This application technique explains how to combine a Guardmaster® dual-input safety relay and the actuator subsystems of a safety function. In this application technique, the Guardmaster dual-input safety relay de-energizes the final control device - in this case, the hard-wired Safe Torque Off (STO) inputs on the Kinetix 5500 or Kinetix 5700 servo drive. The final control element is de-energized immediately for a stop category 0.
