MESCO develops first IO-Link Safety Development Boards

Monday, 9. October 2017

IO-Link is being increasingly adopted in the automation industry. In the near future, sensors and actuators for applications in the area of functional safety will rely on IO-Link Safety, the new specification that was released this summer.


MESCO IO-Link Safety Development Boards

Like IO-Link itself, IO-Link Safety will also be easy to integrate. The technology remains fieldbus and system independent. This is achieved by implementing safety standards such as FSoE or PROFIsafe in the IO-Link Safety Master. For the integration of IO-Link Safety into a new fieldbus system, the IO-Link Safety master must therefore be adapted - the IO-Link Safety devices remain uniform and can be used unchanged. For more complex sensors or actuators requiring safety-related "Dedicated Safety Tools" for parameterization, IO-Link Safety also provides a standardized software interface.

MESCO has developed IO-Link Safety Development Boards to be able to support manufacturers more efficiently with the development of their IO-Link Safety products. These boards will serve as a basis for the development of IO-Link Safety master and device stacks, and are intended to enable faster and more cost-effective development times.

Software Library simplifies the development of safety drives

During the development of safety drives a substantial portion of the effort (and costs) involved can be attributed to the implementation of safety functions. MESCO Systems has put together many safety-related functions in one software library. It can be universally deployed and thus allows drive manufacturers to significantly reduce development costs and shorten development times.
