IO-Link Safety expands machines and systems automated with IO-Link to include functionally safe components and communication.

On the second day, TÜV-SÜD will cover the basics of safety development – of FS masters and FS devices in particular – in accordance with IEC 61508/62061 and ISO 13849, enabling participants to evaluate the implications for the engineering departments of their company. This includes an overview of the relevant standards & their content, project management, management for functional safety, required documentation, life cycle, safety functions, preferred architectures, methods for avoiding dangerous faults, FMEA, verification & validation and certification.

The third day will begin with a general overview of procedures for design & implementation and the creation of IODDs, including CRC calculations, and dedicated tools. A host of suppliers will then present development kits and development support.
