Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DISTRIBUTING PROJECT DATA OF A SAFETY CONTROLLER OF AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM TO THE CONTROL COMPONENTS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a safety controller for controlling an automated system (10) based on project data (130), wherein the project data (130) represent an application running on the system (1), comprising a plurality of control hardware components (26), wherein at least part of the control hardware components (26) comprise a project data memory (52, 52', 52", 52'", 52"") in each case, wherein the project data memories (52, 52', 52", 52'", 52"") are designed to store the supplied project data (130). The controller further comprises a connecting unit (34), by way of which the control hardware components (26) are connected to each other, and a distribution unit (52, 142), wherein the distribution unit (52, 142) is designed to distribute at least part of the project data (130) via the connecting unit (34) to at least part of the project data memories (52, 52', 52", 52'", 52""). The invention further relates to a related method and a related computer program.
