Safety Integrated for optimal machine safety

Machine safety

Consistent, end-to-end safety for factory automation

Safety only truly exists if all the components and systems used in the plant are safe at all times. Siemens integrates the appropriate safety functions into the standard automation to ensure safety at any time during the production process. That's the consistent implementation of safety solutions according to Totally Integrated Automation. You need fewer components, less wiring, and save space in the control cabinet.
