SafetyBridge technology makes it possible to distribute safe I/O modules in a network without the need for a safety controller. SafetyBridge technology allows the input and output modules to exchange safety-related signals with one another. Since the modules process the safety function themselves, the standard control system and network are only used as a transport medium. By eliminating the safety controller and safe fieldbus system, SafetyBridge technology can reduce the cost of a safety system.
