Implementing functional safety and control tasks efficiently
The safety of personnel and machinery must be ensured throughout the entire life cycle of a machine or plant. This personnel protection normally involves the use of safety-related components such as position switches, light curtains, two-hand controls, emergency-stop buttons etc.
The safety-related information is monitored and evaluated by the new Safety control relay which meets the highest safety requirements. In this way, applications can be implemented with Safety that comply with international safety standards, such as category 4 in accordance with EN 954-1, PL e in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1, SILCL 3 in accordance with EN IEC 62061 and SIL 3 in accordance with EN IEC 61508.
The Safety certified by TÜV Rheinland combines the standard controller tasks with the safety-related tasks of a machine. Whether for simple or complex machines, the required protection of persons and processes is ensured by the compact Safety device.
