Review of the CIP Safety SafeMotion Profile Functionality

Technical Abstract

First released in 2005 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 (fall-2013) Safety Motion Profile further integrates networked safety functionality into a broad range of drive products to greatly expand the scope of functional safety applications addressed through CIP Safety. This paper presents a detailed review of the Safety Motion Profile and four new objects introduced by the Safety Motion Objects SSE supporting motion safety functionality as defined in the IEC 61800-5-2 (Adjustable speed electrical power drive systems – Part 5-2: Safety Requirements – Functional) standard.
