Does Kuka provide an SNCT (Safety Network Configuration Tool)?
We are working to integrate a KR C4 controller with a Schneider M580 safety PLC to communicate via CIP Safety over Ethernet/IP.
One of the key parameters to set is the SCID (Safety Configuration ID) otherwise known as "Configuration Signature" in Schneider documentation.
SCID = concatenation of SCCRC (Safety Configuration CRC) + SCTS (Safety Configuration Timestamp).
According to documentation, the SCCRC and the SCTS can be obtained from the SNCT. They are then input into Schneider Control Expert in the DTM settings. This ensures a verified CIP connection between the PLC and KR C4.
We are also asking Kuka customer support, but wanted to check on the forum as well.
