Easy integration of third party safety components

Easy integration of third party safety components

B&R has long said that with POWERLINK, it’s easy to integrate many different third-party devices into B&R automation solutions. The same now applies to safety components with an openSAFETY interface as well as modular devices. This makes implementing multi-vendor applications easier than ever.

OEMs often combine safety components from different vendors to create a safety solution. With Automation Studio, any openSAFETY device can be seamlessly integrated and configured using a device description file. This extends B&R’s support for optimal integration of third-party safety devices such as light curtains, rotary encoders, laser scanners and drives.

The same applies to modular devices, which can be connected and configured using the graphical editor in Automation Studio. This improves clarity and makes commissioning of the entire system more efficient.

Another big step in usability is the expansion of B&R’s proven firmware handling function to include all third-party POWERLINK and openSAFETY devices. The firmware on these devices is now updated automatically at startup and can also be manually reverted to an earlier version if necessary.
