BoschRexroth Safety Technology



Whether the task involves machine tools, packaging and printing machines, assembly, handling or robot applications, the protection of personnel, machines and tools is absolutely paramount. In order to meet these expectations, modern safety concepts have to comply with demanding requirements such as "safe motion", "safe processing of peripheral signals" and "safe communication". Safety on Board from Rexroth meets all these requirements and is the synonomous with well thought-out and intelligent safety solutions from the Automation House.


BoschRexroth SafeLogic




  • Safe interlinked machinery - The safe exchange of data between the individual safety controllers for machine linkages is also via SERCOS safety and the C2C transport mechanism of SERCOS III.
  • Safe drive technology - The IndraDrive drive-integrated safety technology can be integrated in networks via SERCOS III for interpolation drives. It is also possible to integrate drives in positioning block mode via PROFIBUS DP, with integration via PROFINET IO also available in future as well.
  • Safe inputs and outputs - To meet requirements for safety integrity, Rexroth Inline SIL 2 and SIL 3 SafetyIO-modules are available for safety periphals signal inputs and outputs. The I/O modules can be run on SERCOS, PROFIBUS DP and the local bus regardless.



BoschRexroth SafeMotion





  • Increased machine productivity as a result of shorter special mode times
  • No unnecessary idle times because the line circuit breaker does not have to be opened
  • No need for re-synchronization of coupled axes
  • High reliability thanks to certified and integrated safety functions
  • Savings on limit switches, measurement and analysis units and control cabinet size
  • Reductions in time and money spent on certification
  • Online-self-monitoring instead of forced offline-checking-procedure, i.e. no periodic machine shutdown needed for fault detection
