Courtesy: Rockwell AutomationThe Safety Lifecycle Toolkit from Rockwell Automation’s Safety Lifecycle Toolkit is designed to give engineers one environment to complete the entire machine safety lifecycle. The toolkit includes the Safety Automation Builder software tool from Rockwell Automation. This is integrated with two other tools—the RASWin software tool from SolidSafe and Connected Components Accelerator Toolkit (CCAT). These tools are designed to guide engineers through steps of the machinery safety lifecycle within one environment, providing documentation to show compliance with international standards. Users can select all elements of an individual safety function, including input, logic and output devices, and will receive calculation files to confirm performance-level requirements are met. The integration of the RASWin risk-assessment software allows users with a Rockwell Automation subscription to conduct a risk assessment, define functional specifications and complete safety-system validation within the toolkit. This helps ease the compliance process because documentation is thorough, consistent and standardized from one project to the next.
