  • Overview of new controllers and top features.
  • In this scenario you can see a machine with multiple interlocked guard doors. All the interlocks are connected in series back to the controller.
    With no diagnostic information available, over a number of months you may find that faults develop. In this example, a interlocked guard door becomes misaligned due to machine vibration thus causing an unscheduled machine stoppage.
    The operator would not easily be able to establish the reason for the machine stopping and would have to contact the maintenance engineer.
    The maintenance engineer will then need to perform diagnostic assessment on the whole application using valuable maintenance time and causing loss of production.
  • In this scenario you can see a machine with multiple guard doors interlocked with SensaGuard non-contact safety switches.
    The interlocks have a switch mounted LED for status indication and are connected in series back to the controller.
    As the guard door becomes slightly misaligned, the interlocks LED will blink orange, visually notifying the operator that there is a issue. This does not stop the machine. The operator can then inform maintenance and maintenance can be performed at the next scheduled downtime of the machine thus eliminating unscheduled downtime and associated production losses.
  • In this scenario we have multiple manufacturing lines with multiple guard doors, all connected back to a central controller.
    Over a period of time issues may arise such as vibration causing an interlocked guard door to opening slightly thus stopping production.
    The control system will notify the operator that the line has stopped but there will be no identification of the position or nature of the individual fault.
    Maintenance personnel will need to be called to troubleshoot with an aim of getting production back online. This could be time consuming resulting in lost production costs.
  • In this senario we have multiple manufacturing lines with multiple guard doors.
    Utilising Rockwell Automations Integrated Architecture with safety and automation control seamlessly integrated, full status information is available.
    Here we have utilised GuardLogix as the controller with Safety I/O blocks dispersed throughout the application.
    Connecting all the safety devices through the safety I/O allows system status down to the individual guard door or e-stop. Therefore if an e-stop or an interlock switch is operated, that individual safety signal will be sent via CIP Safety over EtherNet/IP or DeviceNet, back to the controller.
    The operator receives notification that there is a fault, and will know where the fault is located so that he can either deal with it if it is not a major issue as shown here, or contact maintenance personnel which ultimately means that downtime is minimised.
  • In this scenario we have a robot cell, guarded by physical barriers and light curtain system inside for personnel detection.
    A light curtain is used across a loading section to reduce loading issues.
    The operator needs to replenish parts for the robot to continue production.
    Loading of these parts required the operator to stop the robot while loading and unloading occurs.
    This lengthy process impacts productivity and manufacturing flexibility.
  • In this senario, the functional operation of loading parts has been combined with zone controlled safety.
    You can see the robot is now working from two zones, left and right.
    When the operator needs to replenish part, he can set one loading section to ‘load’, thus muting the light curtain to allow loading but without stopping production.
    In this state the robot will be restricted to only work in the other zone.
    Once parts loading has been completed the zone will be un-muted and the robot can resume production utilising parts from both sides. This helps increase productivity by reducing robot and application downtime.
  • In this scenario we have a physically guarded cell which is interlocked via a Guardlocking switch on the access door.
    For an operator to gain access into the cell he has to lock off power to the application, stopping all 5 robots.
    When power is removed and isolated via a key, the operator can then put that key into his pocket and gain access through the now unlocked guard door.
    Maintenance or repair to robot 3 can be carried out safely but this process impacts productivity and can be costly if prolonged maintenance is needed.
  • In this senario there is no physical guarding around the robots. Instead the application is safeguarded by SafeZone safety laser scanners.
    One laser is used per robot, which allows the robots to be maintained individually.
    In this example, the operator removes power to robot 3 stopping the robot. In doing so, the robots on either side of robot 3 reduce to a slower speed allowing the operator or maintenance person to work on robot 3.
    Production can continue at a slower rate in robot cell 2 and 4 and at full speed in robot cell 1 and 5.
    This solution offers a flexible strategy to carry out maintenance procedures while maintaining production.
  • In this scenario we see an engineer programming a machine with multiple programming software tools.
    Programming safety control, plc control, drive control and other automation control with different tools may cause confusion, increase programming time and the possibility of programming errors.
    It also requires multiple software programmes to be learnt by the engineer and subsequently by the operating and maintenance staff.
  • Here we see the engineer programming a machine through Rockwell Automations RSLogix 5000 software, a single programming environment for safety, drive, motion and plc programming.
    This reduces programming time and the possibility of errors by the engineer.
    It also aids programming consistency and flexibility, and when the machine has been deployed into the manufacturing environment it further reduces the possibility of error as the machine operator and maintenance engineer need only to learn one software platform.
  • In this scenario we have the operator requiring access to a guarded area. Using lockout isolation techniques, electrical power and pneumatic power can be isolated to achieve a safety working environment inside the guarded area.
    In this situation the operator is locking out with padlocks which will then allow him to enter the guarded area with the keys in his pocket.
    In this senario the operator may need to go to several areas to lock off multiple power sources which may take time and also offers the possibility to forget to isolate some power sources.
  • Here, a Prosafe key exchange system has been utilise for lockout which enforces a sequence of events before access to the guarded area can be achieved.
    The operator has goes to one location to isolate pneumatic power and electrical power with two A coded keys.
    When both keys are inserted into this key exchange system, key B is freed which can then be inserted into the door interlock.
    Key B is then trapped into the interlock which allows key C to be removed. The operator can put key C into his pocket and safely enter the guarded area.
    This solution enforces sequenced lockout of power and ensures that no power can be reenergised whilst the operator is in the guarded area.
  • This scenario demonstrates the issues associated with low levels of integration and the impact this may have when production expansion is required.
    Here you can see one manufacturing line utilised within a factory. When demand increases, additional lines may have to be installed.
    The installation engineer has to program PLC, motion, drive and safety control individually, which lengthens the time it takes to increase capacity.
    This can impact time to market and cost of manufacturing integration.
  • In this senario Rockwell Automations Integrated Architecture is utilised as the control platform which integrates safety and automation control in one environment.
    This allows the use of RSLogix 5000 software, a single programming environment for safety, drive, motion and plc programming.
    Manufacturing capability can then be easily and quickly replicated with the flexibility to individually adjusted settings within one environment.
  • In this scenario a centralised monitoring facility for multiple manufacturing sites receives notification of unexpected nuisance tripping on one of its manufacturing lines.
    This may be due to a mechanical failure, environmental issues, or possibly a false alarm. Because there is insufficient diagnostic information to pinpoint the cause of the error, an engineer is sent to the plant.
    The engineer has to assess the whole machine to find the error and then take appropriate actions. This could be time consuming and costly.
    When assessing the machine, the engineer discovers it is a simple issue related to a safety light curtain which may have become misaligned due to vibration or un-intentional operator interaction.
    This process uses valuable maintenance time, can be costly and impacts on productivity.
  • With a fully integrated solution utilising Integrated Architecture from Rockwell Automation, centralised monitoring of multiple plants is offers more comprehensive information to make appropriate decisions.
    Here you can see the centralised monitoring facility receives notification of unexpected nuisance tripping with specific information on the location and nature of the error.
    This allows monitoring personnel to contact the manufacturing site, inform local personnel who can then carry out appropriate actions to correct the fault.
    This reduces downtime, cost of maintenance and increases flexibility.
  • In this scenario you can see that personnel are required to operate this loading cell.
    The operator is required to manually open the guarded access hatch, pass the barrel into the filling station and then close the guarded access hatch before the machine can commence filling.
    This process can limit productivity in relation to operator efficiency and also introduce possible operator error resulting in production waste.
    There is also the possibility of operators trying to bypass safety functions to increase throughput.
  • In this senario, cross beam muting and safety light curtains are used with a conveyor belt to automate a filling station process.
    The barrels are preloaded onto pallets which move along the conveyor belt. As the pallet mounted barrel passes through the two cross beam sensors, the light curtain is automatically muted to allow the barrel to pass into the guarded area.
    When it clears opposing two beams, the light curtain un-mutes which reengaging safe guarding of the access hatch and allows the barrel to be filled.
    This automated system increases productivity and reduces the possibility of operator error whilst ensuring that the hazardous area is guarded at all times.
  • In this senario an operator requires access into a production cell protected by an interlocked guard door.
    The operator gains access by opening the guard door without initiating a controlled machine stop, an incorrect but common operator action.
    This removes power from the application to allow safe access but also may remove all power to the AC drives via the up-steam safety contactors utilised in the application.
    Upon restart of the application the AC drives have to power cycle which may take time and also is detrimental to the operational life of the drives.
    Complex start-up routines may also have to be followed which could result in product waste.
  • In this senario an operator requires access into a production cell protected by an interlocked guard door.
    The operator gains access by opening the guard door without initiating a controlled machine stop, an incorrect but common operator action.
    The PowerFlex AC drives in this application have integrated Safe Torque Off which removes rotational power to the motors. This allows power to be maintained to the AC drves but ensures the application can not start.
    When the operator closes the guard door and initiates application restart, no power cycling or complex start-up routines are required, allowing production to quickly return to full speed.
    Safe Torque Off also allows system complexity to be reduced as up-steam safety contactors can be removed
  • This senario illustrates the complexity a control system may reach when line expansion is required.
    A large control cabinet is required to house all control functions such as PLC, drive, motion and safety control with associated devices.
    As devices are added to the production line such as safety devices, sensors, indicators and machine control devices, system complexity and wiring increases.
    Utilising traditional connection solutions and separate control for automation and safety, the control system can quickly become challenging to maintain and troubleshoot.
    Premium space with associated costs is also required to house large control cabinets.
  • Utilising an integrated safety solution based on GuardLogix allows automation and safety control in one platform which helps reduce control cabinet complexity and size.
    Distributed safety I/O’s also allow localised control on the machine, further reducing the necessity to have all control functions in one location.
    The use of CIP safety over EtherNet/IP or DeviceNet, allowing standard and safety communications to exist in one network further reduce wiring complexity and simplifies maintenance.
    Therefore it becomes clear how a control system can be simply expanded without impacting space requirements and complexity.
  • In this scenario you can see the impact total power removal has when maintenance procedures such as cleaning are required on a printing press.
    The operator removed power to the press in order to gain access inside the guarded area.
    Only partial cleaning can be achieved in this state as the rollers can not be rotated to completely clean them.
    When the rollers need to be rotated to complete cleaning, the operator must leave the guarded cell to initiate partial rotational power.
    To complete cleaning, this procedure may have to be repeated a few times. This impacts the time it takes to complete cleaning and lengthens the machine downtime.
  • In this senario Safe-speed control technology from Rockwell automation is utilised to allow efficient maintenance of a printing press.
    The operator sets the machine into maintenance mode which allows safety monitored partial power to be available.
    The operator can then enter the guarded area and using a 3 position grip switch, can safety engage slow movement of the rollers at a pre-determined safe limited speed.
    This allows the operator to carry out cleaning efficiently and quickly resulting in minimum machine downtime.
    Safe direction can also be utilised to rotate the rollers in an outward moving direction, thus removing potential pinch points.
    If at any stage the operator needs to stop the rollers, he can either let go or squeeze the 3 position grip switch.
  • In this senario you can see the effect a pre-determined timed delay has on operator access to a machine.
    The operator selects a controlled stop to allow him to gain access through the interlocked guard doors. The machines saw blades coast to a stop placing the machine in a safe condition.
    Access however to the guarded area is not allowed until the safety system, utilising a pre-determined delay function, unlocks the guard door.
    This may be lengthy as the machine builder may have included a safety factor in assessing the required stopping time of the machine, hence extending the time to unlock the guard door.
    If frequent access is required this could impact the machines productivity.
  • In this senario Safe-speed control technology from Rockwell Automation is utilised to allow operator access into a hazardous area as soon as a safe condition exists.
    The operator selects a controlled stop to allow him to gain access through the interlocked guard doors. The machines saw blades coast to a stop placing the machine in a safe condition.
    As soon as the the hazardous motion has stopped, the safe-speed monitoring function signals the guard doors to unlock allowing the operator to gain immediate access.
    If frequent access is required this could help reduce machine downtime and increase productivity.
  • In this senario an application is shown that requires travel velocity to be accelerated and decelerated under control.
    With a control system without safe-speed monitoring, there is potential of speed adjustments being made by an engineer or fault conditions that could result in ride quality issues.
    Here you see a chair lift with deceleration speed issues at the unload area causing the chair to swing. Similar issues could also be found in conveyor applications on start-up and stopping which could cause product movement issues or runaway conditions.
  • In this senario Safe-speed control technology from Rockwell Automation is utilised to safely monitor maximum acceleration and deceleration.
    This allows the control system to stay within tolerances set by the application engineer. If changes are made to velocity or a fault occurs the safe-speed monitor will take appropriate action.
    This allows control of ride comfort safely.
    This senario is shown utilising the MSR57P safe-speed monitoring relay but is also available as an integrated option into the PowerFlex 750 series of AC drives and future release of Kinetix 6000 motion drives from Rockwell Automation.
