Mitsubishi Electric MELSEC iQ-R Series CIP Safety Module

Wednesday, 12 June, 2024 | Supplied by: Mitsubishi Electric Australia


Mitsubishi Electric Automation has designed the MELSEC iQ-R Series CIP Safety Module to provide safety signal transmission to a diverse range of devices and equipment, including third-party robots, Mitsubishi Electric and third-party-VFD products, and safety I/O and interlocks.

Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) safety is a protocol developed by the Open DeviceNet Vendor Association (ODVA) and is widely used in industrial automation systems. CIP Safety defines a set of rules and mechanisms for exchanging safety-related information between devices in a network to enable reliable communication of critically safe data within an industrial system.

The module occupies a dual slot on an iQ-R PLC rack and is compatible with both EtherNet/IP and CIP Safety protocols to provide versatility and integration capabilities in different industrial settings. It complies with international safety standards EN ISO 13849-1, Category 4 PL e and IEC 61508 SIL 3 and has been tested with various third-party robots, PLC peer-to-peer communication, gate switches, area scanners, VFDs and remote I/O. The iQ-R CIP Safety module is most widely used in packaging and the automotive industries but can be applied in systems requiring safe communication.
