Increased occupational safety and reduced idling times
System controls that monitor the production process instead of switching it off can be installed in the system in accordance with the EC Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and EN ISO 13849-1 standard, which are intended to minimize the risk posed to people by technical equipment. The control systems applied must satisfy the relevant requirements regarding safety and performance level.
Not only is the concept of “functional safety” significant for employee safety, but it can also significantly increase the productivity of the machines and systems. This is why SEW‑EURODRIVE is investing in flexible solutions with safetyDRIVE. Flexibility is key: the modular safety technology components or the safety technology integrated directly into the drive technology are individually selected and adapted according to the application and task.
