New generation of safety controllers

TwinSAFE: consistently modular, scalable and distributed safety applications


With its focus on increased modularity and scalability, the new generation of Beckhoff safety controllers allows optimum adaptation to the specific safety requirements of individual machine concepts. The ability to distribute the intelligence of an entire safety application across multiple TwinSAFE Logic-capable I/O modules enables the flexible implementation of increasingly modular architectures that can be adapted to given system requirements even more effectively than before.

With the new safety controllers based on the EL6910 TwinSAFE Logic, it is possible to adapt the TwinSAFE system even more specifically to the individual requirements of a machine concept as well as to a broader spectrum of safety applications. The new I/O components include:

  • TwinSAFE EtherCAT Terminal EL1918: digital terminal with eight safe inputs
  • TwinSAFE EtherCAT Terminal EL2911: safe potential supply terminal with four safe inputs and one safe output
  • TwinSAFE EtherCAT Box EP1957-0022: IP 67-protected digital combi module with eight safe inputs and four safe outputs
