In co-operation with Pilz-Safe Automation, STOBER has designed a new SE6 safety module for their outstanding SD6 drive controller.
For those using, or planning to specify the SD6 drive controller, the SE6 is a new module that’s easy to use and allows safe drive monitoring in safety-related applications up to SIL 3, PL e (category 4) in accordance with EN 61800-5-2 and EN ISO 13849-1. The low worst case response time of less than ten milliseconds enables fast stopping.
One of its highlights is ‘safe brake management’, which consists of Safe Brake Control (SBC) and Safe Brake Test (SBT) with test cycle monitoring. "This enables the drive controller to fulfil the requirements of the soon to be released EN 16090-1 and is based on a publication of the German Social Accident Insurance (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung, or DGUV)”, explains STOBER’s Drive Controller Accessories product manager, Markus Frei. “The DGUV trade publication forms the basis for the draft standard DIN EN ISO 16090-1:2016-02, where the topic of protecting vertical axes is described in a standard for the first time."
In addition to the Safe Torque Off (STO), Safe Stop 1 (SS1) and Safe Stop 2 (SS2) stop functions, SE6 also enables functions for safe movement and safe motion monitoring. The Safely Limited Speed (SLS) and Safe Speed Range (SSR) functions ensure that the drive does not exceed the configured velocity limit values.
Safe Direction (SDI) monitors the configured direction of motion, and Safely Limited Increment (SLI) limits the increment reliably. Safe Operating Stop (SOS) monitors an active stop.
No special motors, encoders, cables or stall or speed sensing switches required.
