Safer applications

In addition to the qualitative approach to safety required by the EN 954-1 standard, EN 13849-1 demands a quantitative calculation of safety functions. In many installations, this leads to the use of a safety control being required. As a member of the PLCopen Safety Organization, Baumuller has taken the new safety requirements in the automation industry on board and provides PLCopen Safety-compliant security solutions that can be integrated throughout the machine's automation system.

The concept comprises centralized, modular decentralized and hybrid automation structures and is reflected across every application area. In this way, Baumuller is able to integrate its safety concept into all automation components, including communication systems and the Engineering Framework ProMaster.
