Safety Over IO-Link for Profisafe

POSTED 08/06/2018

In this video we share another innovation from Balluff to bring Automation and Safety together to offer a functional safety solution for factory automation. The concept is called Balluff's Safety over IO-Link. It utilizes Profisafe black channel tunneling principal for communicating safety over Profinet and IO-Link. This approach significantly reduces safety integration time, provides more diagnostics and offers flexible-modular approach.
