openSAFETY is the first open and only truly bus-independent safety standard available for all industrial Ethernet and fieldbus solutions. This technology makes it easier to implement safety solutions in compliance with current 2006/42/EC machine guidelines as well as other applicable standards. Using the "black channel" principle, openSAFETY is the only safety protocol in the world that can transfer secure data via any fieldbus system. Find out more
Classic fieldbus systems allow automation products from different manufacturers to be combined based on standardized technology. However, limited functionality often made it necessary to use different fieldbus systems for different automation tasks. This required the use of different tools and additional interface modules and also ran up against limitations when it came to diagnostics and infrastructure components. Find out more
