Safety Functional Examples (Part 1): Emergency Stop with Monitored Start and Acknowledgement
The Functional Examples Webinars continue Siemens’ popular series of educational webinars focused on machine safety. Where previous series discussed evolving standards, families of safety integrated products and safety networks, the Functional Examples series brings the discussion down to the implementation level. This series selects specific topics from Siemens’ library of Functional Examples and spends about 15 minutes on each topic discussing the salient concerns, specific products, the wiring approaches and logic required to accomplish the task. This first webinar in the Functional Example series focuses on Emergency Stop safety functions meeting Category 4 per EN954-1. The first 15 minutes discusses “E-Stop with monitored start Category 4 acc. To EN 954-1 with SIRIUS 3TK28 Safety Relay”. The second 15 minutes discusses “Emergency Stop with Acknowledgement in Category 4 acc. To EN954-1” using a Safety PLC.
