Virtually every machine uses e-stops to bring them to a safe, no-power state. With AS-Interface, the most common e-stop is designed so that all the necessary electronics are part of the e-stop.
But there is another approach: combining a more conventional dumb e-stop with a very small AS-Interface G10 safety module....

Safe, contact-expansion relay modules for AS-Interface are used to expand the number of available safety outputs in cases where modern electronic safe outputs cannot be used. Because they have no mechanical components that are more prone to fail, this approach has numerous advantageous for AS-Interface networks:
