Siemens Industry Automation & Drive Technologies (IA&DT) has integrated the engineering of fail-safe applications into its engineering framework, the TIA Portal.
Under the ‘Step 7 V11 user interface’ the new engineering tool Step 7 Safety Advanced now provides the required configuration and programming tools for the creation of a safety-related programme. The new engineering tool for safety tasks uses the standard project structure of Step 7 V11 and offers the same operating concept as for the creation of standard programs. This speeds up the familiarisation process for the user. In addition, the integrated library, with TÜV-certified function blocks for all common safety functions, simplifies the creation of programs.
In connection with custom signatures for the device parameters, the library concept supports in-house standardisation and simplifies the validation of safety-oriented applications. The Safety Administration Editor of the new Step 7 Safety Advanced engineering tool simplifies the administration, display and modification of safety-related parameters. The editor offers the programmer a quick overview at all times with standardised and integrated identification of all safety-related objects.
