Pre-requisite

The ctrlX SAFETY Engineering program has been successfully installed on your PC and has been started. USB cable for connection to SAFEX-C.1x control is available.

1. Start with empty project

2. Select and parameterize SAFEX-C.1x control from library acc. to necessities and place it in the editor workspace (Wiring scheme)

Choose correct SAFEX-C.1x control from library. Take your necessities into account (number of inputs/outputs, capabilities to communicate with other controls, etc.). Place the SAFEX-C.1x control into the editor workspace (Wiring scheme).

Set the parameters of the SAFEX-C.1x control.

3. Select and parameterize input elements

Choose inputs from library and place them in the editor workspace (Wiring scheme).
--> Mind: Usually the engineering software places the elements in a well structured way.

Set the parameters of the inputs.

4. Select and parameterize output elements

Choose outputs from library and place them in the editor workspace (Wiring scheme).
--> Mind: Usually the engineering software places the elements in a well structured way.

5. Connect inputs to outputs using logic elements from library (Functional scheme)

Simply select the elements indicated with green arrow.

11. Check and verify the function of the project

Best use wiring scheme to see how the inputs influence the outputs. Verify, if logic is correct.

In here, if the second E_Stop is pressed, the second input pair is no longer active and thus the Safe Torque Off (STO) to the drive is activated.
The function is correct and is what is expected. Similarly all the other conditions are checked.

12. Lock configuration

If all functions have been checked correctly the project on the SAFEX control needs to be locked.
