GE Intelligent Platforms offers safety solutions specifically designed for process industry and factory automation applications. The process safety solutions include hardware features such as analog input validation, line fault detection, and output dynamic testing. To provide class-leading performance in all environments, the hardware can be operated between -40 and 70° C, are G3 conformal coated, and are resistant to 5G vibration and 30G shock. Software security features include programming security, programming change tracking, program validation with respect to language, coding, and references, and determination of trusted and safe data sources.

SafetyNet is part of the PAC8000 range - specifically designed to meet the needs of the Process Industry. A rugged product, it can be used standalone in SIL 2 ESD or Fire & Gas applications - and if standard IO is mounted on the SafetyNet node, it can be used as a tightly Integrated Control and Safety System.
