AS interface safety at work
The Safety Fieldbox in 3 variants PROFINET with PROFIsafe, EtherNet/IP with CIP Safety and EtherCAT with FSoE, enables a high degree of flexibility as a simple plug&play solution: all common types of safety switchgear can be connected.
Schmersal offers a wide range of safety switches with integrated AS-Interface Safety at Work interface, which can be easily networked with each other via this safety bus system. The AS-i system is very flexible, because the configuration can be easily changed even on existing machines.
The SD bus (SD = serial diagnostics) offers cost-efficient safety solutions. The SD interface allows mixed systems of sensors and interlocks. The diagnostics data from series-connected safety switchgear are transmitted to a higher-level field bus system. The SD interface system helps to implement predictive maintenance concepts.
