ODVA Training on CIP Safety

Type: Training
Sponsor: ODVA, Inc.

TÜV Rheinland Headquarters
Am Grauen Stein
51105 Cologne
Schedule: Friday March 31, 2017
09:00 to 17:00 (Local CET)
Language of Delivery:


ODVA technologies include the Common Industrial Protocol or "CIP" - a media-independent, object-oriented protocol. Safety application coverage in CIP provides the ability to mix safety devices and standard devices on the same network or wire for seamless integration and increased flexibility. CIP Safety provides fail-safe communication between nodes such as safety I/O blocks, safety interlock switches, safety light curtains and safety PLCs in safety applications up to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 according to IEC 61508 standards.

Specifically designed to help engineers starting the process of implementing CIP Safety into a product, ODVA Training on the CIP Safety Technology is a one-day course that provides training on the Common Industrial Protocol, safety-specific objects and configuration, implementation approaches, and product testing, plus gives an in-depth review of The CIP Safety Specification.

This training will be run by ODVA. It will be held at TÜV Rheinland Headquarters and will run in conjunction with a 3-day IEC 61508 hardware/software training by TÜV Rheinland.

Attendees may register for either or both classes via this link: Attendees registering for both will receive a discount.
