Siemens Takes Safety On Tour

As part of its ongoing effort to bring technology and solutions directly to its customers, Siemens Energy & Automation Inc. (SE&A) has launched a Safety Innovation Tour. The tour, which will visit cities across the United States, features live demonstrations and seminars on how to seamlessly integrate certified safety protection into a company’s automation architecture. Additionally, SE&A will demonstrate two brand new wireless safety products. 

Attendees will be introduced to a Web-based tool that evaluates the actual safety level achieved per the new safety standards. They will also see demonstrations of the latest in safety bus technologies from a simple device bus up to real-time Ethernet; including wireless solutions will be demonstrated. The events will also introduce safety integrated into PC-based automation.

The tour will showcase safety-rated drives with safe motion, safety controller with integrated Web access, all on a single bus to operator panels and plant wide operation. Whether the application requires a single safety relay, a complex safety solution of coordinated control or anything in between, attendees will see solutions demonstrated that can save engineering time and maintenance costs while improving machine efficiency. 

The no-cost sessions will cover a variety of safety topics including: 
• PC-based safety  
• Basic of new safety standards   
• Safety-rated drives with safe limited speed 
• Simple integrated message functions   
• Embedded diagnostic Web pages     
• HMI showing detailed fault location of the safety functions 
• Safe Ethernet communications   
• Wireless safety communications 
• Simple drive networking 
• Safety networking with AS-Interface 
• Programmable safety relays

Currently underway, the Safety Innovation Tour has already visited several cities and is scheduled to visit more locations with new cities still being added.
