Programmability and functional safety for drive technology in an integrated solution

The demand for modern drive technology is tied to versatile applications and functional safety requirements. Based on pre-certified components, Neuron Automation develops customized integrated solutions that allow for standardization and parameterization of drive controllers independent of the firmware. Subsequent recertification of the created application is not necessary.


  • Programmability according to IEC 61131-3 and C must be ensured
  • Functional safety up to SIL3 must be possible
  • Safe Motion functionality is required
  • Safe communication via FSoE should be available


  • STO (Safe Torque Off) is already present in most drives
  • Customers want programmable drives and wish to use Safe Motion modules for SS1, SS2, SLS, and SBC

Solutions / Toolkit

  • Customer Development, especially Safe Motion modules based on SIC10 (Include a link to the SIC10e description)
  • Our cost-effective safety hardware platform, SIC 100, with relevant firmware implementations (Include a link to the SIC 100 description)
  • Safe fieldbus stack (FEoE) as a pre-certified and ready-to-use component.
  • Safe Motion library for implementing safety motion applications
  • The safety-certified runtime system NEURON RTS safe with a small footprint, enabling the execution of safe applications in the drive
  • Easy safety parameterization with the PLCopen library and Neuron Safe Engineer
  • T3 qualified engineering environment Neuron Power Engineer for programming the drives
