Ixxat Safe T100

Modular solution for control of safe I/O signals

The Ixxat Safe T100 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 IEC 13849-1.

The Ixxat Safe T100/PS implements the PROFIsafe layer and the 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.

The Ixxat Safe T100 is currently available for PROFIsafe. Support for additional safety protocols (CIP Safety and FSoE) is in progress.

Features and Benefits

  • All necessary functions and methods to achieve SIL-3/PLe on one board — simplifies customer board design
  • IOs configurable for single and dual channel use
  • Pre-certified concept and hardware for easy re-certification of the final device
  • Provision of full documentation set including TÜV type approval
  • Direct connectivity to Anybus CompactCom module for non-safe fieldbus communication - safe and non-safe communication on the same wire
  • Significant reduction in time-to-market at  a significantly lower project investment

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 PROFIsafe, for example, the communication module carries out the tasks of a PROFINET I/O device.

Simple certification

A 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

To evaluate the Ixxat Safe T100, a corresponding development kit is available as a reference implementation. It consists of a base board with a PROFINET I/O Anybus CompactCom communication module and a host CPU, along with an Ixxat Safe T100/PS with Safety I/O leads brought out. The configuration of the Safety I/Os uses PROFINET/PROFIsafe and is supported by a special configuration tool, which can be integrated seamlessly into the Siemens Step7 toolchain, for example.
