E-stop, guarding, or presence sensing are machine safety functions that require multiple elements. The elements include a sensor or input device, a logic device, and an output device. Rockwell Automation provides guidance for specific safety functions that are based on functional requirement, equipment selection, and Performance Level requirement.

Built with the customer in mind, these safety functions minimize risk and speed development. Examples of the information that is provided in our safety functions documents include:

  • Set-up and wiring
  • Bill of materials
  • Wiring schemes
  • Configuration
  • Verification and validation plan
  • Calculation of Performance Level
