Send SIL 2 Certified Commands

Integrate one Nano Safety Controller into your controller or HMI, and another in your machine or vehicle. The two paired boards can send and receive SIL 2-rated wireless safety commands such as emergency stop.

Streamline Development

The Nano Safety Controller leverages FORT's expertise in functional safety and makes it possible to send and receive trusted communications over BLE with minimal development effort or risk to system designers.

Black Channel Communications

We apply black channel communication principles to isolate and transmit safety data over virtually any network. Error detection and latency monitoring add extra layers of protection to ensure data integrity.

Functionally Safe Deployment

The Nano Safety Controller makes it easy for you to incorporate SIL 2 level safety into your design so you can develop and deploy with confidence.


Trusted Commands

Commands can include e-stop, crawl, reduce torque, or other changes in state. Configure the Nano Safety Controller to send or receive the specific commands that are safety-critical for your operation.
