The integrated TwinSAFE safety solution is the logical continuation of the open, PC-based Beckhoff control philosophy. Due to their modularity and versatility, the TwinSAFE components fit seamlessly into the Beckhoff control system. Accordingly, TwinSAFE has been integrated into the EtherCAT Box system. A large number of TwinSAFE-capable EtherCAT Box modules are available for securely recording, processing and outputting safety-relevant signals.
In addition, the is available. This allows standard signals from the areas of analog input, angle/displacement measurement or communication to be used for safety tasks in any network or fieldbus. TwinSAFE SC enables communication via a TwinSAFE protocol. These connections can be distinguished from the usual safe communication via Safety over EtherCAT.
