Hengstler sees enormous potential in the field of functional safety in combination with ever-increasing machine guidelines, increasing number of safety applications. For this purpose, the internal system structure of the encoder is expanded by a combination of available blocks. The Safety Communication Layer of BiSS Safety has been certified according to IEC 61784-3: 2010 ans IEC 61508 Part1-7:2010. It is therefore suitable for safety-relevant communication up to SIL3.
This means that BiSS Safety, combined with Hengstler rotary encoders, will combine positive effects from two worlds. As a customer, one can be sure that Hengstler will successfully extend the encoder portfolio with BiSS Safety, thanks to its decades-long BiSS experience. On the other hand, users benefit from different providers, which offer a manufacturer-independent protocol for secure data transmission.
