Ethernet-APL provides all the features required for a modern, future-proof network in the field of process plants. So why not fully exploit the advantages of digitalization and implement functionally safe (safety) automation utilizing the same network architecture? Having Ethernet-APL, the innovative physical layer, opens a unique opportunity to incorporate the requirements for safety applications in the instrumentation with Ethernet-APL.
The white paper “Ethernet-APL in the Field for high-availability Safety Applications” explains the benefits for end-users and product managers of suppliers when deploying Ethernet-APL's features simultaneously for safety and non-safety instrumentation. It is brought to you through the collaborative effort of BASF, Endress+Hauser, HIMA and Pepperl+Fuchs.
