Description:

This paper discusses the changes in standards for the design of safety-related control systems. EN 62061 and EN ISO 13849-1 both deal with the functional safety of machine control systems, but they use slightly different terms and techniques to determine performance. Many users are confused by conflicting guidance from suppliers, who may prefer one standard over another. This paper clarifies the differences between EN ISO 13849-1 and EN 620 and discusses the main points machine builders should keep in mind for each.
