Online Round Table: Analog Devices, TÜV NORD & MESCO

30. September 2021

2nd Online Round Table: Analog Devices, TÜV NORD & MESCO

+++ Functional safety, developer experience Safe Ethernet interfaces, Ethernet in hazardous areas (Ethernet APL) +++

The webinar focuses on the practice-oriented needs of hardware and software developers who are planning or already implementing a project with functional safety and safety protocols.

It provides you with valuable information on a conscientious but pragmatic implementation of safety-relevant requirements in the electronics development of components for factory and process automation.

Benefit from specifically shown news and solutions for common tasks in the field of functional safety and industrial communication.
Save valuable time with hints and tricks from experienced experts.

  • As a technology provider, Analog Devices presents current solutions and chipsets for industrial communication, in particular SPE Ethernet / Ethernet-APL (Ethernet communication in hazardous areas).

  • From the point of view of an inspection and certification body, TÜV Nord presents the safety-relevant industrial communication to be fulfilled in this area, including the normative requirements.


  • MESCO Engineering provides you with know-how in the field of functional safety and safety-relevant communication. As a reliable development expert for components of industrial automation, we present practical knowledge and development platforms.

Ethernet-APL & OPC Foundation cooperate

The cooperation between the OPC Foundation and the Ethernet-APL consortium will enable Ethernet-APL / OPC UA interfaces in the future. MESCO follows this trend and is expanding the Ethernet APL service accordingly: PROFINET / OPC-UA / MQTT communication can be implemented in field devices.


New HART® Slave Stack version 7.7

MESCO launches the latest version of its portable protocol software for HART field devices. HART Slave Stack 7.7 offers a quick and easy solution for communication that corresponds completely to the HART fieldbus system. A detailed documented interface for API simplifies integration and porting even further. The pre-certified software cuts development times considerably.
