System Description: PROFIsafe Technology and Application

Filed under

One of the major events within the lifetime of the PROFIBUS and PROFINET International (PI) community was the first release of a specification for safety communication in 1999. It caused a quantum leap in possibilities in the world of automation. Since this event, PROFIsafe has evolved to become the leading and most comprehensive safety communication technology in the world. PROFIsafe is now progressing toward becoming an International Standard within IEC 61784-3-3. It is the objective of this document to provide a thorough insight into the PROFIsafe technology and the related issues without becoming too engulfed in specific details. It is not meant to replace standards or the official specifications and guidelines mentioned below. Those are definitive and binding.

PROFIsafe is approved by both the IFA and TÜV.

Safety has gained a constantly growing importance in the consciousness of the population worldwide. A comprehensive examination of application scenarios by numerous safety experts from well-known companies has created an open solution for PROFIBUS, the PROFIsafe technology. It is a software solution, which enables it to cover the whole gamut of requirements of process industries supplied by PROFIBUS (e.g. in the case of processing industries, the lowest loss making output, and in the case of manufacturing industries, reaction times in the ms field).
