AKD2G Safety Parametrization Using FSoE with SCU-1-EC and PCMM/AKD PDMM

The safety features in the AKD2G safety drive (Basic and Advanced) can be activated through either FSoE (Fail Safe over EtherCATClosed ***EtherCAT is an open, high-performance Ethernet-based fieldbus system. The development goal of EtherCAT was to apply Ethernet to automation applications which require short data update times (also called cycle times) with low communication jitter (for synchronization purposes) and low hardware costs) or digital input or both. The source of activation is configured inside the safety parameters and it needs to match the system requirements.

This document describes how to configure and enable safety functions through BBH’s SafePLC and KAS IDEClosed "Integrated development environment" An integrated development environment is a type of computer software that assists computer programmers in developing software. IDEs normally consist of a source code editor, a compiler and/or interpreter, build-automation tools, and a debugger applications.





Following are the general steps for safety parameterization via the "direct" method using the KAS IDE and BBH SafePLC2 software.

  1. Create a PLCopenClosed A vendor -and product- independent worldwide association active in Industrial Control and aiming at standardizing PLC file formats based on XML-based project in the KAS IDE.
  2. Scan the EtherCAT network.
  3. Configure the safety modules for the AKD2G devices.
    • Choose either the "SRA Parameters" or "SRA Parameters configure via WorkBench" module, based on your application need.
  4. When using the "SRA Parameters" profile, add the FSoEParamsInit function block to your project.

    This function block enables the controller to read the safety parameters from the FSoE Master (SCU-1-EC) and write them to the AKD2G.

  5. Follow the steps listed in Connecting to a SafePLC2 Project - Direct Method if SafePLC2 is installed on the same computer or Connecting to a SafePLC2 Project - Import Method if it is installed on a different computer than the KAS IDE.
  6. Compile and download the SafePLC application to the BBH safety master (SCU-1-EC) and run the application.
  7. Compile the KAS IDE project.
  8. Run the compiled KAS application.
  9. Execute the FSoEParamsInit function block when the application is ready and EtherCAT is in OP state.
