Drive Controllers With Additional Profinet Functions
Stober has enhanced its SC6 and SI6 series drive controllers with additional PROFINET functions. Thanks to the redeveloped SU6 module, the controllers offer a solution for STO and SS1-t via PROFIsafe. In the area of motion control, Stober now supports a wide range of application classes in accordance with the standardized PROFIdrive device profile. In addition, the communication interfaces of the drive controllers are now also PROFINET certified.
Stober developed the SU6 safety module for functional safety, available as an option for the drive controllers. It offers the user an economical solution for STO and SS1-t safety functions via the PROFIsafe safety protocol. This predestines the drive controllers for use in systems with high demands on safety technology up to SIL 3, PL e, category 4. Design engineers can implement an emergency stop in accordance with EN 13850, for instance – or prevent an unexpected start-up in accordance with EN 14118. The communication interface functions of both controllers are also PROFINET-certified. This certification took place as part of a type-examination by the Institut für Arbeitsschutz (IFA) der Deutschen Gesetzlichen Unfallversicherung (DGUV) (Institute for Occupational Safety and Health of the German Social Accident Insurance).
