Safety Under Control With Flexi Compact

The new software-programmable Flexi Compact safety controller from SICK Sensor Intelligence offers exceptional user-friendliness, flexibility, efficiency, and cost effectiveness. 

Future-proof Compact Safety Controller

The new Flexi Compact from SICK Sensor Intelligence is an all new modular safety controller which boasts a particularly competitive price/performance ratio and is well suited to machines with medium to complex safety logic.

When it comes to high usability, the intuitive Safety Designer commissioning software can help you to plan your entire safety application with the Flexi Compact in a matter of minutes. 

Impressive across the board – Flexi Compact ensures a fast production start, productive processes and increased machine availability

Flexi Compact gives you the means to implement your Industry 4.0 application to optimise your maintenance procedures for maximum machine uptime. Comprehensive diagnostics data can be read, visualised and evaluated in an application-specific manner via commonly used fieldbus protocols.

Combine the Flexi Compact with the Flexi Loop for a simple and cost-effective series connection of safety sensors without reducing the performance levels of your safety-rated control systems.

A detailed diagnostic function also assists with troubleshooting, keeping downtime to an absolute minimum while still achieving PLe and SIL3. 

Safety-over-EtherCAT

The Flexi Compact ensures that your machine and safety-related control systems will operate efficiently at all times thanks its high-performance Safety-over-EtherCAT backplane bus which provides safety-relevant data transmission in parallel to standard automation data on the same network. Faster response times also enable short cycle times and additional productivity gains in highly dynamic processes.

Fast Device Setup

Flexi Compact redefines the usability of safety controllers as the Smart gateway modules provide quick device set-up which speed up your commissioning time as well as simplifying machine integration, ensuring a fast production start.

Easy HMI Integration

By using the Flexi Compact safety controller, you can read, visualise and evaluate comprehensive diagnostics data in an application-specific manner via commonly used fieldbus protocols such as, Profinet and EtherCAT. In fact, easy HMI integration also facilitates direct on-site analysis.    

Future-proof Safety

The path to Industry 4.0 is characterized by continuous change. Thanks to its modular design, the Flexi Compact safety controller from SICK will continue to remain perfectly tailored to a wide variety of applications in the future.
