Pepperl+Fuchs products evaluated to ISO 13849-1 mostly show a performance level and category in the respective documentation. In other cases (mainly sensors) there are values given in the documentation that allow building a category 3 application by using the devices in redundancy. Electronic devices with programmable electronics are mostly also evaluated to IEC 62061 and claim to have a SILcl which also allows the use within safety applications according to the machinery directive.
As a supplier of functional safety equipment, Pepperl+Fuchs makes it easy to access the relevant values of components already in use. This helps you calculate safety assessments and offers various additional benefits:
The values and calculation procedures have been developed by IFA (Institut für Arbeitsschutz der Deutschen Gesetzlichen Unfallversicherung).
When the values are available for all components in use, the safety assessment of the machine or plant can follow.
