AS-Interface Safety at Work is a safety-related extension of the AS-Interface and is simply integrated in an existing AS-Interface network. All standard and safety components are activated in parallel via the same cable so that you can integrate safety-related functions such as an EMERGENCY STOP or door monitors in your existing system.
In order to evaluate safety-relevant signals, you will only require one additional safety monitor that uses dynamic code sequences to reliably communicate with the Safety at Work components. Installing an AS-Interface guarantees compliance with safety category 4 according to EN 954-1 and SIL3 according to IEC / DIN EN 61508.
This free PDF white paper compares the different TCP-based communication protocols (AMQP, OPC UA, MQTT, REST API) that have found their way up and are considered the enablers of IIoT and Industry 4.0. Get your free download now!
