"Functional Safety is a subject that is important in many areas such as machine safety and process safety. CAPIEL products are used in this type of applications, This presentation explains the basics of Functional Safety."
Low voltage controlgear products and functional safety.
CAPIEL Project Group n° 5 has prepared a position paper to inform the CAPIEL members and machine builders the interpretation of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC to provide default values for reliability which can be used when making functional safety calculations.
Low voltage switchgear and controlgear - functional safety aspects
Functional safety is an important part of machine safety. The European Machinery Directive together with the harmonized standards EN 62061 and EN ISO 13849-1 gives the requirements.
This brochure provides information concerning the application of these standards and the European Machinery Directive, relevant to the implementation of low voltage switchgear and control gear in functional safety applications. Together with important facts it gives examples of low and high demand mode.
