SINAMICS S120 - Parameterizing Safety Integrated (DR-S12-SAF)

  • In this course you learn the handling of drive based Safety Functions. You know applications of the different functions and you can parameterize them using Startdrive in the TIA Portal. Therefore you use the benefits in comparison with a conventional safety technology, like reduced cabling or faster commissioning of identical machines. In the course you got through all steps for the implementation of the safety functions until the final acceptance report.
