Safety and Control System offers half-byte mapping feature.

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...
