Rugged, high-performance & trueSafety

With cSCALE control solutions, Hirschmann MCS offers a platform for mobile machines in rough environments that can grow with its challenges.

Safety at the Highest Level

Optimum safety with high availability - the cSCALE S6 trueSafety contains a unique combination of a high-performance functional CPU in combination with a certified safety CPU. 

  • Certified SIL 2 / PL d Cat.2 controller according to IEC 62061 and EN 13849
  • TÜV certified in conformity with EN ISO 13849 PL d and IEC 62061 SIL 2
  • Complete control solutions according to EN13849 / EN13000
  • High-performance application CPU
  • Certified arithmetic floating point and trigonometric functions
  • Support of redundant system architectures

SECURE mechanism

By the use of block cipher AES-256 bit (Advanced Encryption Standard), our control solutions are comprehensively protected from manipulation and unauthorized access. Encryption of the application and installation, plus a controlled update process that is recorded in the controller, brings security of our cSCALE series to a whole new level.


  • Reliable block cipher AES-256 bit
  • Unambiguous identification of software products on defined hardware
  • Unwanted software is blocked
  • Protection mechanisms are enabled for field updates using a USB stick
