27 - 31 May
The Ligna 2013 trade fair is also the perfect opportunity for B&R to highlight another of their strengths - openSAFETY, the only open, fieldbus-independent safety standard currently on the market. In addition to digital I/O, openSAFETY also covers analog and temperature interfaces as well as safe speed measurement up to SIL3 and PLe. Together with safe drive technology, it enables a large number of extremely fast safe reactions, which offers an opportunity for machine developers to reduce their reliance on E-stop buttons that can often result in damage.
openSAFETY can be seamlessly integrated into any standard control system. This includes B&R solutions for automating, operating and visualizing mobile systems, for example in the harvesting of timber. When applied to vehicle-mounted tools being used in a forest, B&R's integrated safety approach can help achieve occupational safety levels similar to those in a modern factory.
These highlights and more will be featured at the B&R booth as part of a comprehensive exhibition of notable innovations spanning every area of automation, further increasing B&R's already outstanding market position in the woodworking industry.
