The DeviceNet safety controller from Omron can control multiple safety functions without the need for a safety PLC, reducing the cost of an integrated safety and control network. The controller can operate either with an existing DeviceNet PLC or as a stand-alone device. The technology is based on the recently developed CIP Safety protocol, which enables it to be used with products from other vendors.
