The First Open Safety Protocol for Real-Time Ethernet
Today, many safety solutions are based on hardware components that must be wired separately from the control network. The consequences are cost-intensive cabling and very limited diagnostics options. Another solution implements a safety controller that receives all signals directly or via a proprietary safe bus. With these types of systems, special cables and specific safe bus components are...Read More »
