The TÜV certified product allows to extend any CODESYS project with an EtherCAT controller with CODESYS EtherCAT Master stack for the development of safety functions with TÜV certified safety logic modules by Beckhoff and digital FSoE I/O modules and analog TSC input modules in the EtherCAT network. The extension with safety-specific editors and configurators is integrated seamlessly into the CODESYS Development System and the CODESYS EtherCAT configurator. It enables cost effective and scalable realization of simple safety applications with zero sytem integration or adaptation effort and low acceptance expenditure. The product is aimed at users and at device manufacturers who do not intend to develop their own safety controller and require only limited safety functionality.
Safety level up to PL-e according to DIN EN ISO 13849 and up to SIL3 according to IEC 62061/61508, depending on input and output devices and programmed logic.
Simplified acceptance by Limited Variability Programming (LVL) according to ISO 13849 and IEC 62061.
Logic modules: EL6900 or EL6910 as EtherCAT camp (TwinSAFE-Logic), or EK1960 as EtherCAT coupler (TwinSAFE-Compact Controller) by Beckhoff, or EL1918, EL2912, EL2911
Digital SIL3 I/O-modules: FSoE modules (Failsafe over EtherCAT) by any manufacturer installed from EtherCAT description files.
Analog SIL2 input modules: 10 TSC modules (TwinSAFE SingleChannel) by Beckhoff: EL3124-0090, EL3174-0090 (differential), EL3214-0090 (for resistance sensors), EL3314-0090 (for thermal element), EL3356-0090 (for weight cell/resistance bridge); and encoders/givers EL5001-0090 (SSI), EL5021-0090 (Sin/Cos), EL5032-0090 (EnDat2.2), EL5101-0090 (incremental differential RS422), EL5151-0090 (incremental)
Operation functions and fieldbus configuration on the standarc controller can be changed without impact on the safety functions of the safety logic module.
Standard signals can be exchanged with the EtherCAT controller: standard input signals for comparison with TSC values, signals from/to the standard application.
Multiple safety logic modules within an EtherCAT network are possible.
Groups: Monitoring of multiple safety areas by one safety logic module supported by dividing the safety application into “groups” of I/O modules with related logic in an IEC 61131-3 POU in FBD language. Each group is started, stopped, diagnosed and error acknowledged separately by the standard application.
Optional devices: If a safety area is not present in the machine, EL6910 and EK1960 allow to deactivate the corresponding group by online command without chaning the application (permanently, temporarily, passivated).
CODESYS V3.5 SP16 Patch 3 (64 bit, 32 bit),
or a version listed in column “Compatibility” under “All versions”
Do not use together with GIT or SVN.
Windows 10 (64 bit)
The versions maintained by Microsoft are supported.
CODESYS Control V3.5 SP4 (or higher)
License for CODESYS EtherCAT Master on the controller
Note: Use the project “Device Reader” to find out the supported features of your device. “Device Reader” is available for free in the CODESYS Store.
No configuration of SRA-parameters; no installation of further TSC modules from description files; no PROFIsafe support
Single Device License: The license can be used on the target device/PLC on which the CODESYS Runtime System is installed.
Licenses are activated on a software-based license container (soft container), which is permanently connected to the controller. Alternatively the license can be stored on a CODESYS Key (USB-Dongle). By replugging the CODESYS Key, the license can be used on any other controller.
Note: In demo mode, the software runs for two hours without a license. SAFE STATE WILL BE ENTERED AFTER EXPIRY OF TWO HOURS!
Optional: CODESYS Key
The CODESYS Development System is the IEC 61131-3 programming tool for industrial control and automation technology, available in a 32-bit and a 64-bit version.
