DATAEAGLE 3000/4000 – Wireless PROFISAFE
Our product line DATAEAGLE 3732 and DATAEAGLE 4732 – Wireless PROFISAFE was specially developed for the transparent transmission of PROFIsafe using radio technologies like Bluetooh. The use of our patented filter technology guarantees a highly available and reliable radio connection, especially for wireless PROFIsafe applications. Experience yourself!
Wireless PROFISAFE in practice
Sensor and application data are usually transferred from machines at the field level to a controller for use. If this is to take place wirelessly in view of moving parts, e.g. in sewage treatment plants or cranes, radio links are used that are aligned with the respective fieldbus: The modules of the DATAEAGLE 3000 series/ 4000 series “speak and understand” PROFIBUS with support from PROFIsafe. The patented data pre-processing including filter function ensures particularly high system availability.
In this webinar we will specifically present the possible use of wireless technologies for safety applications. It is therefore suitable for all those who want to learn how to implement safe and stable data communication in compliance with safety regulations.
Wireless PROFISAFE – Product features
Wireless PROFIsafe can be transmitted via PROFIBUS or PROFINET with DATAEAGLE 3000 or 4000. Different radio technologies are used for transmission, mostly Bluetooth 2.4 GHz or 869 / 915 MHz in the licensed band. Thus all systems with PROFIBUS DP or PROFINET IO interface are suitable for one radio link. The solution works quite simply like a cable replacement: Plug&Play.
PROFIsafe – same protocol for radio and cable
Whether for a crane control system, the emergency stop transmission of a production machine, or other safety-relevant communication: PROFIsafe has been established as a standard for functionally safe communication and has been an international standard since 2007 under the designation IEC 61784-3-3. The safety-related protocol is used to transmit data between a safety controller (F-PLC or F-Host) and field devices (F-Devices). While the controller and device are usually safety-related components and must be certified accordingly, PROFIsafe, according to the system description, has no effect on the standard bus protocols used: whether with Industrial Ethernet (PROFINET IO), via RS485 (PROFIBUS-DP), via backplanes or wireless – the method used for data transmission has no influence on the safety rating. The transmission channels are merely so-called “black channels”, of which the actual PROFIsafe application is completely independent. Accordingly, the PROFIsafe system description also states: Wireless transmission is permissible as long as sufficient availability (no false alarms) and IT security are guaranteed.
