PDU transferred through the safety communication channel

NOTE 1 to entry: The SPDU may include more than one copy of the safety data using differing coding structures and hash functions together with explicit parts of additional protections such as a key, a sequence count, or a time stamp mechanism.

NOTE 2 to entry: Redundant SCLs may provide two different versions of the SPDU for insertion into separate fields of the OPC UA frame.
