    Online, Non-Safety Support Tools

    • CompactRIO controller—provides a hardware connection for monitoring Safety Programs and setting outputs through digital passthrough.
    • LabVIEW—provides a platform for monitoring User Programs.

    Functional Safety System Components

    • C Series Functional Safety module—contains a logic solver that runs User Programs and provides I/O that connects to inputs, final elements, and a power supply.
    • User Program—contains a set of user-defined logic and actions that run in the logic solver. The User Program defines the system's responses to inputs and detected faults.
    • Cabling, sensors, final elements (actuators)—allows the C Series Functional Safety module to connect, monitor, and control safety critical systems.
    • External LPS power supply—powers the C Series Functional Safety module.

    What to Do

    • Operate the safety User Program on the logic solver as part of your safety instrumented function (SIF).
    • (Optional) Monitor the Functional Safety system through LabVIEW.
