New ARC Whitepaper
PROFIsafe: Networked Safety for Process and Factory Automation

Dear Reader,
Siemens invites you to download a complimentary copy of a new white paper entitled ' PROFIsafe: Networked Safety for Process and Factory Automation .'
In this paper, the ARC Advisory Group , the leading Manufacturing and Supply Chain research and advisory firm, shows why safety has evolved from being a cost burden and “necessary evil” to a strategy for improving productivity and reducing downtime.
Download this valuable paper, which we are only offering for a limited time, and learn how you can:

  • Curtail Downtime : Quickly bring production up to speed after a safety trip

  • Increase OEE and ROA : Keep machines running and personnel safe

  • Meet International Safety Standards : Machine OEMs can deploy globally acceptable safety solutions

  • Reduce Installation Time : Significantly cut wiring time by implementing a single bus architecture

In this paper you will also learn how one manufacturer cut integration times by 30 to 35% and another reduced wiring times by as much as 30% .
ARC states '... two-bus architectures are a thing of the past, ....
For new projects, machine builders, system integrators and end-users should find out how
a single bus strategy can both cut installation costs and lower TCO for future production equipment
.'
