Ixxat Safe T100/CS

The Ixxat Safe T100/CS offers device manufacturers an easy way to control safe I/O signals using a safe fieldbus protocol. The module meets the SIL3 safety requirement level as defined by IEC 61508 and Performance Level PLe / Category 4 in ISO 13849-1.

Safe T100/CS is primarily designed to be used together with Anybus CompactCom, where the safety communication uses the black channel principle through Anybus CompactCom. For CIP Safety, CompactCom takes over the EtherNet/IP Adapter functionality and the safety module implements the CIP safety layer and safe control of three dual-channel inputs as well as one dual-channel output.

The module's very compact size and flexible safety I/O routing make it perfect for integration into customer specific device solutions.

How it Works

Black channel principle

The Ixxat Safe T100 is used in customer devices together with a communication module of the Anybus CompactCom series, which is used to implement the unsafe bus connection. Safety communications use the black channel principle through the Anybus CompactCom communication module. For CIP Safety, for example, the communication module carries out the tasks of a EtherNet/IP Adapter.

Easy Certification

TÜV Certified LogoA comprehensive safety manual is provided for device certification. This describes all the needed integration and verification steps to achieve the TÜV certification which greatly reduces the time-to-market. Especially the clear separation of safety-relevant functions from the unsafe functions of the end device by the precertified Ixxat Safe T100 plug board is a great help in this situation. 

Development Kit

The Safe T100 comes with development kits for evaluation purposes. These consist of a base board with a EtherNet/IP Anybus CompactCom module and a host CPU, along with the suitable safety module with easy to access safety I/O signals. The configuration of the Safety I/Os is done via the fieldbus connection.

Solution Sheet

Proven example for Safe Communication Implementation

As IIoT and Digital Transformation advance in the industrial automation market, there are increasing demands for visualization and digitization, not only on production line level but also on device level. At the same time, functional safety has become a global standard, and the next step is implementing functional safety via communication.
The solution sheet gives an example of implementing safe communication in products which are already compatible with an industrial network.
