B&R shows how to break free from hard-wired safety

17 May 2015

B&R has added a new series of safe digital mixed modules to its X20 SafeIO family with the intention of breaking down the barriers to entry for programmable safety technology.

Even in the smallest applications, integrated safety technology is now no more expensive than a conventional relay. Safety systems at the smallest scale can now be implemented with a single X20 SafeIO module.

B&R's programmable safety technology is based on semiconductor components that are not subject to wear like conventional electromechanical relays, which have to be replaced periodically to maintain the functionality of the safety application.

Semiconductor-based safety technology is also considerably faster than relay-based systems.
