A key advantage of openSAFETY is that the data transfer protocol that carries safety frame traffic has no bearing at all on the functionality of the safety protocol. This is called the Black Channel principle. All safety-oriented mechanisms are implemented exclusively on the application level, which enables total independence from the underlying transport layer.
What do users have to do?
Users who would like to implement an openSAFETY-based safety solution with their existing data communication system must only ensure that the safety protocol is integrated on the application layer of their bus system.
Already TÜV-certified, openSAFETY provides a solid basis for implementing safe data transfer capability.
