2nd Generation SafeMotion Improves Productivity

Safety2G increases machine uptime and permits safe interaction between operator and motion

Fast motion or gravity-sensitive loads could be hazardous to machine operators. Traditional safety technology keeps the operator away from the production process via mechanical guarding, hence the operator can’t interact with the operation process.image

By contrast, AKD2G, with integrated SafeMotion, allows user intervention without interrupting the process. The innovative SafeMotion feature increases productivity by reducing downtime and is available with our AKD2G drives.

Powerful SafeMotion Functionality

An extensive set of innovative SafeMotion functions enables reduced downtime:

  • Instead of removing power, permit traverse- or homing motion with high speed and prohibit movement towards the operator.
  • Scalable functions starting from simple STO up to advanced safety
  • Monitor the deceleration ramp with SafeSpeed and SafePosition
  • Controlled SafeStop functions like SBC with SBT or SDB

SafeMotion from the Motion Experts

Kollmorgen is your best supplier for demanding motion solutions. Easy-to-use Kollmorgen SafeMotion makes the difference:

  • Wide range of single-cable safe DSL encoder types to simplify wiring and reduce the cost of a variety of functionally safe applications
  • AKM2G supports safe position feedback and qualified brakes for safe brake control
  • AKD2G also offers a high-end SafeMotion solution:
    • Simple configuration of parameters via Kollmorgen Workbench
    • Simplified troubleshooting during commissioning
    • Simple field drive replacement
  • Conformance with functional safety standard IEC 61508

Plug & Safe – Innovation based on Simplified Connectivity

The benefits of safe FSoE (Fail Safe over EtherCAT) combined with drive-integrated SafeMotion:

  • Lower cost of the safety system due to reduced safety wiring & I/O
  • Reduced cabinet size due to decentralized safety and fewer components
  • Reliability increases due to fewer components.
  • Efficient engineering due to simplified SafeMotion parametrization  → reduced complexity.

Flexible Safety System with Seamless Integration

Smooth migration to the future:

  • Start by hard-wiring traditional safety devices directly into AKD2G’s Safe I/O
  • Take advantage of existing EtherCAT communication to move to FSoE
