In recent years, we have received many
inquiries regarding the compatibility of the B&R SafeIO portfolio with
safety sensors or special products such as safety mats.
With the ABB Jokab sensor portfolio, we now have an optimal sensor supplement from the ABB Group that can be combined with our proven SafeIO products. In order to relieve our customers from unnecessary testing and tuning measures, we have checked and tested the interaction of our SafeIO products with the ABB Jokab sensor portfolio. Compatibility is documented in the Automation Help system under mapp Safety.
Customers already familiar with ABB Jokab products will also be familiar with the DYNlink solution. This solution allows DYNlink safety sensors to be connected in series, while only occupying a single SafeIN channel. In spite of this, the solution achieves CAT 3 and thus PL d or very often PL e. Customers can thus use this solution to significantly reduce the required number of SafeIN channels and thus implement more cost-effective solutions.
Support for the DYNlink solution in the B&R system is planned for mapp Safety 5.12 (pre-release September 1, 2020). The function is provided via firmware upgrade and is therefore available for all X20 SafeIO products with safe digital input channels.
ABB Jokab offers another way to transmit sensor status via a "status bus" in addition to the "information output". This "status bus" uses proprietary hardware and software, and B&R does not currently have the ability to support this protocol. A decision has not yet been made with regard to development of a SafeIO product compatible with the "status bus", so we will not be offering this feature in the long run. However, thanks to the TINA 4A or 8A connection boxes pre-configured for the "information output", the advantage of "status bus" products over the solution supported by B&R is small.
List of compatible ABB Jokab Safety products:
The compatibility to the following products has been proven.
This list is updated periodically, the list is published regularly in the mapp Safety documentation in the chapter "Use of Sensors & Actuators".
