MESCO develops first IO-Link Safety Development Boards

Monday, 9. October 2017

IO-Link is being increasingly adopted in the automation industry. In the near future, sensors and actuators for applications in the area of functional safety will rely on IO-Link Safety, the new specification that was released this summer.

MESCO IO-Link Safety Development Boards

Like IO-Link itself, IO-Link Safety will also be easy to integrate. The technology remains fieldbus and system independent. This is achieved by implementing safety standards such as FSoE or PROFIsafe in the IO-Link Safety Master. For the integration of IO-Link Safety into a new fieldbus system, the IO-Link Safety master must therefore be adapted - the IO-Link Safety devices remain uniform and can be used unchanged. For more complex sensors or actuators requiring safety-related "Dedicated Safety Tools" for parameterization, IO-Link Safety also provides a standardized software interface.

MESCO has developed IO-Link Safety Development Boards to be able to support manufacturers more efficiently with the development of their IO-Link Safety products. These boards will serve as a basis for the development of IO-Link Safety master and device stacks, and are intended to enable faster and more cost-effective development times.

We also develop for you!

MESCO offers CC-link IE TSN

MESCO is a new service provider for CC-link IE TSN technology. At this year's sps ipc drives in Nuremberg Peter Bernhardt, Head of Marketing and Sales at MESCO, referred to it.



The introduction to explosion protection

Explosion protection is of central importance especially in the chemical and petrochemical industries. When MSR devices require approval as explosion-protected equipment, the requirements of explosion protection must be integrated into the development process during device development. MESCO provides a practical introduction to the subject of explosion protection.


The introduction to functional safety

The demand for functionally safe products is growing continuously. Standards such as IEC 61508, IEC 62061, IEC 61511 and ISO 13849 or EN 61800-5-2 are particularly challenging for beginners. MESCO provides a practical introduction to the topic of functional safety.
