New CIP Safety Gateway over EtherNet/IP

The new CIP Safety Gateway (BWU2742) from Bihl+Wiedemann exchanges with a GuardLogix® Safety PLC from Rockwell Automation both standard I/Os and safe I/Os.

In general the safety program runs in the respective safety PLC. Optionally, a safety program in the Gateway can also monitor system parts without the safety PLC.
