Implementation Safety System

Implementing the right safety system can increase productivity while helping to mitigate risk and minimize costs. Thanks to advances in automation technology increasingly cohesive global standards and a manufacturing culture keep on protecting people and optimizing machines, manufactures have the best opportunity ever to employ an integrated system that improves productivity without compromising safety.

Rockwell automation offers a large line of innovative safety automation products and services, providing customers with a single, trusted source for all their safety automation needs.

Conventional Safety System
Many legacy manufacturing applications were developed without an emphasis on safety, relying on the operator and maintenance technician to avoid hazards. Other was deployed as an after thought, in response to an accident or new industry standard. These safety ad-ons used a “black-box” approach where the safety solution were completely separate from the automation system, contributing to a reactive manufacturing environment.

Integrated Architecture Solution
The risk associated and conventional systems are no longer needed or acceptable, thanks to progressive global standard, major technological innovation and risk management services. When deployed properly using a holistic approach today’s safety automation system allows the best of both worlds, a safety environment for employees, reduced environmental impact better processes and optimized productivity.

Innovation Safety Technology Systems
The inherent properties of automation solutions make it easier for costumers to cost effectively integrate safety. The transition from electromechanical relays to solid state device brings a host of new benefits including improved diagnostic, improved reliability and better space efficiency. Likewise the integration of safety control into network based architectures provide valuable plant-floor information that can be used to optimize production and help reduce downtime.

The ability to implement safety control within a single network architecture offers many advantages over hardwiring, including reduced design, installation and maintenance cross as well as expanded diagnostic capabilities. New safety control technology also help streamline lock-out procedures, improving productivity while minimizing the desire for operators to bypass the safety system.

Additionally the practice of designing in safety up front helps machine builder evaluate and mitigate risks early in the process, saving critical time and helping you get machines to market faster. Innovative safety technologies make it possible to use zone control and safe speed for maintenance and repairs. This combine with the ability to streamline hardware helps machines use less energy, require less downtime and be more productive.
