Regular information

Documentation and access to our technical content, events and publications are also very important to us. So the organisation not only publishes technical articles, press information, brochures etc., but also provides interesting and up-to-date information, in particular with the newsletter Safety Network News and the magazine CONNECTED.

Subscribers to the newsletter and recipients of the magazine are regularly informed of current developments concerning the safe bus system SafetyBUS p and the Ethernet-based system SafetyNET p. Contents include the latest news from the user organisation, details of newly implemented applications and current developments relating to the standards. Members of the organisation also have the opportunity to get involved by submitting their own articles.

Sharing information and experiences

One very important aspect of the organisation’s work is providing and assuring an optimum environment for the individual members to share experiences and suggestions through working groups, exclusive expert committees, technical committees or joint events.

The members contribute their expertise on this shared platform and profit from the experience of the other members. Users get to know new technologies and their practical application, and can thus draw on the experience and expertise of device manufacturers in various aspects of automation. Manufacturers and integrators gain new ideas and technological impetus from their discussions with users and universities. Universities benefit from the wide-ranging wealth of practical experience of users, manufacturers and integrators.

To committees and working groups

Joint presentation

We offer our members the opportunity to present their companies, products and services in the field of safe automation at exhibitions and events.

By taking this joint approach it is easier to access target groups or reach out to the next generation at recruitment events. Focused marketing thus achieves multiplier effects.
