ABB - AC500-S Safety PLC

AC500-S Safety PLC


  • Ideal choice for complex functional safety applications like crane, hoist, robotics, wind turbines etc.
  • Separate safety CPU offers the benefit of safety functions which remain active even when the non-safety control is inactive.
  • Able to handle real number or floating point data type resulting in highly accurate calculations for controlling speed, position etc.
  • Comes with a full range of trigonometric functions often used in precise measurements involved in crane applications.
  • Offers greater flexibility and simplicity due to programming in Structured Text (ST) as well as Function Block Diagram (FBD) and Ladder Diagram (LD).
  • The configuration and programming is done using Automation Builder V1.0 or above with a safety-certified editor in accordance with SIL 3 (IEC 62061) and PL e (ISO 13849).
  • TÜV certified Safety Code Analysis tool (SCA) opens the door to writing well-structured and easily understandable code which dramatically saves your time and money on solution certification efforts.

AC500-S Safety PLC range - extreme conditions XC modules

  • Applicable for harsh environmental applications like crane, hoist, winch, robots, wind (offshore and onshore), solar etc.
  • Physical dimensions, basic electrical characteristics and software compatibility correspond with the standard AC500-S version.
  • Engineering and operations are much more cost-efficient since spending money on special cabinets and cabling practices can be avoided.
