Safety acceptance test integrated into Sinamics Startdrive
Machine builders can ensure safety comes first thanks to the safety acceptance test integrated into the Sinamics Startdrive engineering tool from Siemens.
Sinamics Startdrive provides a tool for the integration of drive hardware into the TIA Portal engineering framework.
The guided safety acceptance test helps machine builders carry out the legally required validation of safety functions for Sinamics frequency converters easily and safely.
The test is automatically generated and extremely user-friendly thanks to the acceptance wizard, which guides the user step-by-step through the acceptance process and checks whether the safety functions have been parameterized correctly and executed correctly in the relevant application.
For documentation purposes, a standard-compliant acceptance report is then automatically created.
The guided acceptance test is available for Sinamics G and S series frequency converters and complies with EN ISO 13849-2 and IEC 62061.

Nick Calow, Technical Director at HMK, said: “The integration of safety functions into the drive presents many advantages for machine OEMs, including the cost of ensuring a safe machine is drastically reduced and the solution is guaranteed to be more reliable.
“With Sinamics Startdrive, the simple-to-use integrated acceptance test provides peace of mind for machine builders that the legally required validation of safety functions are carried out.”
