GE Intelligent Platforms, we understand that production has to become more efficient by enabling the operator to work closer to the process without compromising safety.
VersaSafe adds SIL3 machine safety capabilities to GE’s high performance platforms strategy. By combining secure network connectivity, certified safety function blocks, an easy to use graphical programming environment, customers can efficiently integrate standards-compliant safety capabilities to their equipment while meeting increasingly stringent regulatory requirements. In addition to enabling safety functionality, VersaSafe provides enhanced I/O control capabilities suitable for optimization of high-end machines.
The VersaSafe distributed safety system provides a TÜV-certified SIL3 machine safety solution that focuses on the critical control requirements of the production environment: safe operation and greater uptime of the manufacturing equipment. High availability is delivered by integrating industry-proven PROFINET with optional media redundant protocol (MRP) and multiple cable media options. Machine repair times are reduced by the ability to put a machine in a safe state without fully powering down the equipment, enabling faster start-up after a repair.
