Sick Flexi Soft Drive Monitor expansion module

The Flexi Soft Drive Monitor is an expansion module for the Flexi Soft modular safety controller, allowing drives without integrated safety functions to be used.

The Flexi Soft Drive Monitor also manages safety functions for drives in fixed machines as well as mobile applications. The SLS (safe limited speed), SSM (safe speed monitoring) and SOS (safe operating stop) functions ensure safe drive monitoring. The main advantage is that processes do not necessarily need to be stopped, which makes it quicker to carry out maintenance and adjustments as the machine can be operated at a reduced speed.

In the case of machine tools, mechanical partitions such as covers or protective doors can be used to protect hazardous points. To ensure that tool or work pieces can be changed quickly and safely, the Flexi Soft Drive Monitor module first brings the drive to a secure stop and prevents any possible restart. Immediately afterwards, it releases the opening of the mechanical physical guard.

The quick and safe operation are said to considerably improve the machine’s productivity and availability without delay. In the event of an emergency, it is crucial that the machine stops right away: the SS1 and SS2 functions (safe stop) ensure that the machine is safely stopped in a controlled manner.
