Safety Evaluation Tool

Safety Evaluation Tool offers VDMA 66413 neutral data interface

Universal data format for safety-related characteristic values

The Safety Evaluation Tool offers the ability to import characteristic values from other manufacturers and use them for calculation (as long as the manufacturer provides them in the library).

 

The Safety Evaluation Tool can be used to...

  • import the safety characteristic values of third-party products in VDMA 66413 XML format

  • export the safety characteristic values of Siemens products in PDF format

The safety characteristic values of Siemens products in XML format for importing into other tools can be found at the bottom of this website.

 

The unified sheet VDMA 66413 "Functional Safety – Universal data format for safety-related values of components or parts of control systems" describes a standardized electronic exchange format for safety-related characteristic values of automation components. The aim of the unified sheet is to provide the safety characteristic values in a consistent format for calculation tools in the interest of the users. Siemens collaborated extensively on defining the universal data format alongside other manufacturers and test agencies, such as IFA (Industrial Safety Institute of the DGUV), TÜV Rheinland, and TÜV SÜD.

Data import in the SET works via an additional menu item "Safety related product library". With this tool users can import the VDMA 66413 XML file of another manufacturer into the Safety Evaluation Tool.

Of course, it is also possible to enter safety-relevant product data manually.

Note
Each user is responsible for choosing the data from other manufacturers to be used and imported. It is important to ensure the imported product data are up to date. While importing, the Safety Evaluation Tool checks whether the format is plausible, but not whether the data of other manufacturers are up to date.
Siemens will continue to ensure that its own product data and standard-compliant calculation of the safety functions are up to date.

Siemens safety characteristic values as a PDF

Additionally available: An overview of the safety characteristic values of the Safety Integrated products from Siemens can be downloaded as a PDF from the Safety Evaluation Tool via menu item "Product characteristic values." The overview is provided free of charge and without any warranty for your calculation procedures.
