SIMATIC WinAC RTX F
SIMATIC WinAC RTX F – Fail-safe S7 software controller
Area of application
SIMATIC WinAC RTX F permits simple implementation of safety systems on PC-based solutions, and satisfies maximum safety requirements and compliance with relevant standards: EN 954-1 up to Cat. 4, IEC 62061 up to SIL 3, and EN ISO 13849-1 up to PL e.
The fail-safe software controller is particularly suitable for automation tasks in which, in addition to standard and fail-safe control functions, parallel data processing and the integration of the user's own technological functions are to be implemented on one platform and the openness of Windows is to be exploited.
To ensure the high performance of the complete system the latest PC technologies such as Dual Core are supported, in which one core is used for Windows applications and the other core exclusively for SIMATIC WinAC RTX F. The integration of C/C++ programs into the WinAC RTX control program provides access to all hardware and software components of the PC, creating an extremely flexible solution. The performance of WinAC RTX F is limited only by the PC platform used.
Apart from the software-only controller, particularly rugged and ready-to-run embedded bundles are also available, preinstalled with SIMATIC WinAC RTX F and Windows XP Embedded or Windows Embedded Standard. Whether on the basis of a modular embedded controller, a DIN rail PC or a Panel PC, the application ultimately determines the choice of hardware to be used.
Standardized engineering and the easy portability of the user software between the different solutions also contribute to the overall security of investment and flexibility.
The integration is done by means of one of the interfaces
Applications range from machine-level control tasks with rugged embedded PCs to high-end applications on PCs with newest processor technology (e.g. SIMATIC IPC).
With the new SIMATIC WinAC RTX F software controller, Siemens links its long-term competence in standard and safety engineering with the openness of a PC-based system.
