Integrated safety functions facilitate significantly more powerful safety concepts, where the machine remains active. However, it is safely monitored – and in fact, the resulting shorter downtimes often result in higher productivity.

Conventional safety technology

Integrated safety technology

  • Powerful safety concepts with short response times

  • Simplified proof of machine safety according to ISO 13849-1 and EN 62061

  • No additional hardware components are required (contactors, safety relays)

  • Lower wiring costs

  • High degree of flexibility: safety and operating concept can be implemented in-line with those required in practice

  • High degree of cost-effectiveness: lower hardware and installation costs

  • Higher availability: electromechanical switching elements sensitive to disturbances are eliminated
