Drives with TwinSAFE option card TwinSafe I/O Terminals Software TwinSAFE - Open and scalable safety technology

The TwinSAFE integrated safety solution represents the consistent continuation of the open and PC-based control philosophy from Beckhoff. Due to their modularity and versatility, the TwinSAFE terminals fit seamlessly into the Beckhoff control system. Thanks to the fieldbus-neutral safety protocol (TwinSAFE/FailSafe over EtherCAT), the TwinSAFE devices can be integrated into any desired fieldbus system. To this end, the IP 20 TwinSAFE Bus Terminals are integrated into existing stations with K-bus or EtherCAT or used directly in the machine as IP 67 modules. These safety I/Os form the interfaces to the safety-relevant sensors and actuators. more
