Safety and Control System offers half-byte mapping feature.
April 9, 2010 -
Along with PROFINET interface, PSSuniversal features half byte mapping, which facilitates orientation within system. Integrated standard automation lends to safety, while software accelerates commissioning. There is an absence of feedback between standard and safety, and safety settings for each device are made at single point. Based on modular structure, system minimizes planning and management effort via utilization of FS addresses plus number of addresses.

PSSuniversal PROFINET... now even easier to manage.
The decentralised I/O system PSSuniversal with PROFINET interface is now even more convenient to manage. "Half byte mapping" enables even easier orientation within the system.
Proven system - the benefits of the decentralised I/O system PSSuniversal:
High level of safety with integrated standard automation
Absence of feedback between standard and safety
Modular system structure
Rapid commissioning with PSSu Startup Software
Up to 40 % less power dissipation, depending on the number of safe modules that are needed
The benefits of head modules with PROFINET interface:
The PROFIsafe address is only required once per decentralised station, i.e. safety settings for each device are made at a single point
Simple operation, no need for address setting and address management on each individual I/O module
Less work involved in planning and management due to optimum utilisation of FS addresses plus the number of addresses
Easier orientation within the system thanks to half byte mapping
