Machine Safety: Ethernet Enabled Safety Solutions

12/20/2006




#1 Vendor of Safety PLC's in North America*
is also the #1 vendor of Ethernet Enabled Safety Devices

Dear Reader,
As the leader in Ethernet Enabled Safety Solutions , Siemens delivers solutions which allow you to control your machine and your costs. As an example, Siemens offers the following Ethernet enabled safety products.

  • Wireless Ethernet Remote I/O to reduce wiring costs while safely controlling your machine

  • PLC's with Safety Integrated which controls standard and Safety I/O to help you reduce cost

  • HMI panels which easily monitor your entire standard I/O and machine safety implementation

  • Cabinet less, modular, Safety and Standard I/O delivering the flexibility you need to control costs

  • Firewall VPN so your maintenance and operations can remotely monitor your systems

To see how all of these products work together, click here . At this site you will learn how these products are integrated into a comprehensive solution which helps you to reduce costs, meet new machine safety regulations and implement a solution which is safer for your machine operators.
In addition you will be able to download a complimentary copy of a new ARC 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.
When you download this valuable paper, which we are only offering for a limited time, you can learn how to:

  • 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 powerful 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%.
"... 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." ARC
