Safety standards traditionally have separated equipment function and safety, trusting hardware and mechanical safety features over software and electronic measures. Technical advances in automation hardware and software and new and revised safety standards are driving the market for intelligent and programmable safety solutions. This new generation of solutions is designed to be more effective in preventing accidents, less costly to implement, easier to adapt, and more reliable than existing hard wired systems.

Effective implementation of new safety solutions for both specific machines and plant wide solutions now is possible. Learn how safety standards are affecting manufacturers, and how the integration of Automation and Safety solutions help companies comply with these standards while significantly reducing ownership costs.
