Carlo Gavazzi Canada says its DuplineSafe Safety Bus can transmit signals over long distances (up to 5km without repeater). The simple and hardware-oriented communication principle of Dupline provides a strong platform for a Safety Bus, and the DuplineSafe products are now approved by TUV according to EN61508-SIL3 and EN954-1 Cat 4. Important features, such as noise immunity and reliability, allow DuplineSafe to avoid false trips, while its simplicity reduces the risk of human error and saves time. Moreover the long transmission distance makes it possible to implement plant-wide solutions. Last but not least, thanks to immediate and precise safety diagnostics, machine stops can be fixed faster, leading to higher production efficiency.
