C Series Functional Safety Modules

    Last Modified: July 10, 2019

    The C Series Functional Safety Module offers SIL 3 certification, according to IEC 61508. The safety logic solver resides inside the module, and you can program it with the included Functional Safety Editor software. The module contains built-in diagnostics that can monitor the status of the hardware as well as the integrity of the connections. You can use these modules to control critical safety functions in manufacturing assembly and test cells, large physical systems tests, conditioned monitoring applications, and process monitoring and control.

    Finding the C Series Functional Safety Manual

    Use the C Series Functional Safety Manual to develop Safety Programs using the Safety Editor and deploy Functional Safety systems using C Series Functional Safety modules.
