B&R safety products awarded UL certification

February 9, 2015 - Underwriters Laboratories confirmed that B&R products comply with IEC 61508, IEC 62061 and ISO 13849 – the recognized standards for safety technology. In particular, functional safety certification by UL verifies compliance with applicable North American standards such as ANSI/UL 1998.

Having successfully completed the certification process, B&R's portfolio of integrated safety technology is now UL-listed in the FSPC category (Energy and Industrial Systems Certified for Functional Safety), as well as the corresponding FSPC7 category for Canada.

The significance of this certification extends beyond B&R's customers in the North American market. For European manufacturers who supply machines to end customers in the USA and Canada, having B&R products listed under the FSPC/FSPC7 categories in the UL certification database makes it easier to obtain approval for machine installations in these markets.
