First released in 2003 to solve functional safety applications, CIP Safety has established itself as a key network technology in achieving sustainability objectives of industry and is available for products implementing DeviceNet™, EtherNet/IP™, and SERCOS III. The recently published (November 2013) CIP Safety™ SafeMotion profile provides for inclusion of networked safe motion functionality in a broad range of functional safety applications, unique in covering this application space. This paper presents a range of CIP Safety Safe Motion application use case scenarios for both centralized and decentralized safety solutions. A detailed analysis of the safety architecture, functionality, programming, and commissioning is provided for each use case.
