Ensuring machine safety with optimum productivity is a basic requirement in factory automation; and Siemens is the only provider to offer a comprehensive machine safety portfolio covering all manufacturing industry safety tasks. Safety Integrated gives you a complete safety technology solution from a single source that integrates seamlessly into Totally Integrated Automation.
For fail-safe communication, Safety Integrated uses both the tried-and-tested field bus systems AS-Interface and PROFIBUS as well as the innovative Industrial Ethernet standard PROFINET, which allows for new approaches to safe and efficient machines and systems – such as wireless fail-safe communication via IWLAN.
With all communication solutions, the safety-relevant data are transmitted via the already available standard bus to allow for significant savings in terms of installation and engineering. Safe I/O modules can be combined with standard modules, and safe data can be re-used for diagnostic purposes on the standard level.
