In fact, openSAFETY is open not onlyin terms of its legal basis, but also literally open in technical respects:given the protocol's bus-independence, openSAFETY can be usedwith all fieldbuses, Industrial Ethernet solutions, or industry-specificcommunication solutions. Thanks to its real-time capabilities andsupport of direct cross-communication, POWERLINK ideallycomplements openSAFETY and ensures fastest safe reaction timefor safety systems. The safety standard openSAFETY is certified SIL 3 according to IEC61508 and it has been approved by IEC as worldwide safety standard according to IEC 61784-3.
