POWERLINK and openSAFETY
POWERLINK provides uncompromising performance and real-time capabilities based on the established global standard, Ethernet. openSAFETY is the first open and only truly bus-independent safety standard available for all industrial Ethernet and fieldbus solutions. In addition to openness, the mode of communication of openSAFETY ensures that messages are received and processed by all recipients at the same time. This is one of the reasons why openSAFETY is a step ahead of the rest with regard to response times.
