They allow you to save time and cost in obtaining the machine certificate according to the new European Machinery Directive by including it like a complementary documentation.
They can be easily selected, according to your safety level and application required, by means of our safety selector tool.
(*) Determination of the Performance Level requested (PLr)
(**) Categories of safety stop
International standard EN/ISO 13850 specifies the functional requirements and design principles of emergency stop devices.
It applies to all machines, whatever type of energy is used to control this function.
The standard allows two types of stop:
The choice between these two stopping methods is determined by an evaluation of the machine-related risks.
