Safety Device OSSD Function

I know how to wire them into a circuit, but I was curious how the OSSD function actually operates electrically on safety devices?

Does anyone know? I can't find anything online.



Thanks!

We've played around with wireless, but I recommend against it. The main reason is cost. General wireless IO is around $500-$700 and an IO block like above, but from Turck, is around $200.
