Safe Coupling

Safe communication

Safe Link either over diagnostic or fieldbus interface

For applications that work with traditional fieldbuses, the exchange of safe information runs over the Ethernet diagnostics interface of the AS-i Gateways with integrated safety monitor.

When an industrial Ethernet derivative is being used as the fieldbus, the AS-i networks can when desired be coupled over the fieldbus interface of the Gateways and communication takes place over the already existing Ethernet network.

Safety Gateways

In general the safety program runs in the respective safety PLC. The Safety Gateway exchanges both standard I/Os and safe I/Os with the PLC. Optionally, a safety program in the Gateway can also monitor system parts without the safety PLC.
