LÜTZE Transportation is consistently pursuing its aim of making safety affordable, and, through the modularity of the LION system, permits a scaling of the safety functions from SIL0 to SIL2.
With LION, safe (SIL2) and non-safe (SIL0) related modules can be operated together on the same bus. A separate network installation for processing safe signals is thus no longer required.
LION avoids costly redundancies
LION generates high saving potentials through its use of 1-channel architectures.
LION can work without additional fieldbus networks for safety circuits
With LION, the available network installation can still be used. It is sufficient to use a suitable, applicative safety software attachment in terms of protocolling. Safe and non-safe I/O stations can thus be operated on the same network. These features have a positive effect on the cost and vehicle weight.
LION provides clear advantages in comparison to compact safe nodes
LION permits the scaling of safe I/O channels. The modular architecture allows the direct coupling of safe modules to non-safe modules. It is no longer necessary to install special safe I/O nodes. Safety functions in the train can now be implemented where they are really required. This is possible because LION supports the operation of safe and non-safe I/O modules on the same I/O node.
