Safer Parameter Distribution

Automatic safe parameter distribution

A particular highlight of openSAFETY is the automatic safe distribution of parameters. The protocol makes it possible to store all the configuration details of a safety application, such as light curtain settings, on the safety controller. If a device is exchanged, the safety controller automatically and safely loads the stored configuration onto the new system. Users do not need to manually configure the new node when they replace a safety device.

No faults go undetected

openSAFETY uses checksum procedures to continually check whether transferred data content is incomplete, and constantly monitors the data transfer rate. Thanks to the extremely short cycle times, faults are detected with nearly no delay at all.
