  • MACHINE SAFETY – TAILOR-MADE!

    Alternative solutions and the impact on safety certification - interview with Tobias Thiesmann lisää

    Safety functions are gradually shifting from hardware level to software level. As such, it makes sense for machine builders to work with their 

    safety systems suppliers early on when developing new products. There are particular benefits to be gained from the use of OEM-specific 

    software.

  • MACHINE SAFETY IN INTRALOGISTICS – BEST WHEN NETWORKED

    CONCEPTS FOR COMMUNICATION AND SIGNAL EVALUATION lisää

    When it comes to machine safety in conveyor and storage technology systems, it’s vital that the topic of ‘networking’ is on the agenda, owing to the extensive nature of the systems, and the numerous and dif-ferent safety switchgear devices that they contain. With a sophisticated networking concept, you can achieve multiple goals in one go – transparency in communication, ‘lean’ wiring and intelligent linking of different system areas. Here, system engineers can choose from a number of different options.
