EPSG introduces openSAFETY distribution 1.4 with new features

EPSG introduces openSAFETY distribution 1.4 with new features
The openSAFETY protocol stack is immediately available in version 1.4 as open-source software for download from the SourceForge repository. Just like the predecessor version, this new distribution has been precertified by TÜV Rheinland up to SIL 3 in accordance with IEC 61508:2010. Using the openSAFETY stack drastically reduces the time and risk involved in development.

Another feature for reducing costs is the option of running the openSAFETY Configuration Manager (SCM) on non-safe hardware platforms. This makes it possible to forgo a dedicated safety controller. A version control system has also been introduced.  The user can determine the version of the openSAFETY stack that should be used to run a component.

Additional support for developers is provided by the new, clearly structured Integration Guide, which goes much further than the previous manual and includes a step-by-step explanation of how to integrate the openSAFETY protocol stack into a safe device. Advanced configuration options have also been introduced. Vendors can now configure openSAFETY components using their own tools.
