openSAFETY Demo


The openSAFETY Demo is an example implementation of an openSAFETY Safe Node (SN) with a simple GPIO application using POWERLINK as the underlying communication network. It is intended for people interested in openSAFETY and for evaluation purposes of openSAFETY.

This demo only demonstrates the network capabilities and transport of openSAFEY frames. Additional software and hardware components are necessary to meet any necessary requirements demanded by notified bodies or related standards.

The demo application consists of a part for handling the POWERLINK communication (POWERLINK Communication Processor, PCP), which is implemented on a FPGA platform and another part (application processor) executing the the user application, such as the openSAFETY stack and a sample application.

** The download of the openSAFETY Demo includes all sources and binaries for the FPGA part, as well as for the STMicro Nucleo-F401RE and Nucleo-F103RB development boards.**
