Enhancement of machine productivity and availability in functional safety applications
Safety reaction to hazard events often leads to machine stops with increased downtime of machines. These events are usually triggered by safety devices that detect hazards or when safety devices become defective or unavailable due to failure. Usage of safety PLCs with the “failover” concept can enhance the productivity and uptime of machines and manufacturing systems significantly so that machine interrupts can be minimized or even be avoided in many cases.
