Safe machines – quick and easy using certified products
Our product range for safe machines
Future-proof solutions for machine safety, with a certified, comprehensive product range for all safety tasks in the manufacturing industry: thanks to Safety Integrated. Functional safety of machines and plant can be implemented, expanded and upgraded much faster thanks to the integration of safety technology in standard automation systems, and the use of flexible and modular products and systems.
Safety Integrated in detail
Improved safety – quick and easy
Safety Integrated: the best possible machine safety with no additional hardware. The consistent integration if safety functions in our automation components ensures optimal safety without requiring additional hardware. With the easy engineering in TIA Portal you can save and can also meet all requirements thanks to the scalability.
Easy and compact – with no additional hardware
The safety functions are directly integrated into the drive, and need no additional hardware. They can be expanded for use with different applications in full compliance with standards. This compact solution needs less space and wiring, and makes the tasks of engineering and commissioning easier.
Flexible – and always safe
The Safety Integrated portfolio can be flexibly expanded and covers all kinds of applications – and that applies equally to expanding existing machines and plant as well as new solutions.
Complex – but always manageable
Complex plants can be managed at any time – easily and intuitively – thanks to one CPU, one communication via PROFINET/PROFIsafe and one common engineering environment for fail-safe and standard tasks in the TIA portal.
Totally Integrated Automation in the Digital Enterprise
Digitalization is transforming our world – and with it, the production methods used by leading companies, which have to respond to increasingly individual customer requests. To be able to satisfy them, plant operators need to cut their time to market and become more and more efficient and flexible, with no impact on quality. It is no longer enough just to optimize the automation process. Digitalization offers potentials for optimization all along the value chain, including machine safety.
Our product portfolio for safe machines
Whether it’s for automaton, drives, communications, HMIs, or switching technology: Safety Integrated ensures the best possible safety in all kinds of industrial applications, at all times.

- Industrial controls
SINAMICS with Safety Integrated
SINAMICS drives from Siemens require no external safety components, as the safety technology is integrated into the converters as a fixed component, reducing the number of components and wiring costs.
Communication via PROFIsafe ideally coordinates the way the SINAMICS drives work together with the fail-safe SIMATIC control system, as well as SINUMERIK and SIMOTION, and this is very easy to implement via the TIA Portal. In addition to the best possible safety for humans and machines, Safety Integrated in SINAMICS drives improves productivity by reducing downtimes, and can be flexibly applied throughout the mechanical engineering and plant construction industry.
Seamless integrated safety technology for improved safety and productivity
Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) with Safety Integrated lets you make safe and productive machines much more easily and cost-effectively – from controllers, periphery, HMI and drives to engineering, in every industry.
Safety Integrated gives you integrated safety functions at both hardware and software level that provide you with many benefits during installation, and maximum availability coupled with the maximum possible safety.
Safe operation and monitoring with SIMATIC HMI
The SIMATIC HMI portfolio offers the right safety solution in every performance class: from Basic HMI with pre-packaged key panels to Advanced HMI Panel-based with mobile panels, and PC-based with Panel PC and Software Controller.
You get real added value from the integrated safety functionality with fail-safe transmission of safety-related signals via PROFIsafe. SIMATIC HMI PRO Extension Units with emergency shutoff functionality, for example, can be connected to control units very easily and flexibly, with minimum space requirements.
Safe industrial controls
SIRIUS is the industrial control technology from Siemens. It provides everything you need for a consistent and cost-effective safety chain in basic safety applications: from detecting to evaluating and reacting.
For example, the SIRIUS 3SK safety relays can be used to implement both local and integrated safety functions very easily, since they work together perfectly with both sensor technology and actuators.
The growth of digitalization in businesses and the associated networking are opening up huge potential in almost all areas. Safety Integrated uses your current network structure for the safety-relevant data.
PROFINET – the leading industrial Ethernet standard for automation – and the proven fieldbus systems PROFIBUS and AS-Interface help you to create consistent, integrated processes and set up networked interfaces.
Profile communication (such as PROFIsafe, PROFIdrive or PROFIenergy) can be integrated without additional cabling costs. Everything uses one cable; a secondary structure is not required.
