Elobau introduces SIL certified safety relays
Together with a complete range of Machine Safety Switches and Coded Magnets, available in various sizes, materials and configurations, elobau offers a very comprehensive range of contact-less Machine Safeguarding Solutions.
The current EU standard, EN 954-1 will no longer be applicable and will be replaced by EN ISO 13849-1, which defines a Performance Level (PL) for all safety-related parts of a control system. IEC 61508, along with the sub-category standard EN 62061, determines a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) for the devices.
Manufacturers and operators of machinery are requested to have their machines fully compliant as of December 30, 2009 for the European market. OSHA standards and European standards will later converge towards the IEC61508 international standard.
