Your benefits

Safe communication
in central and decentralized installations thanks to drive technology with safety options that are either integrated or can be expanded as part of a modular system.

Integral communication
between all levels of the system architecture as well as between the actual drive technology components.

...on all levels

The PROFIsafe profile is currently synonymous with safe communication: It gives your systems and automation concepts the functional safety you want and need.

All of our drive components, both mechanical and electronic, speak the “PROFIsafe” language. The components speak this language between themselves and also for communication with the control level.

Therefore, place your trust in the technology of one of the world’s leading manufacturers of drive technology and make use of the communication capabilities of our components. You can do this whether your machine or system is installed centrally or decentralized. And of course, it also available worldwide.
