Machinery Safety, Embedded Systems, Sensors, Actuators


EN ISO 13849, EN 62061, IEC 61508 (VDE 803), …

With the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and the requirements it contains, machine safety has gained enormously in importance and has been furnished with a legally binding basis.


A detailed knowledge of the standards applicable within the framework of machine safety such as EN ISO 13849, EN 62061 and IEC 61508 is indispensable for successfully developing safety-related components.


What really counts, though, is not just familiarity with the content of one or the other relevant standard but rather a deep understanding of the interrelationship of all standards.


As far as this is concerned you will find innotec to be a highly competent partner for all your safety needs. We have a strong track record of successfully completed projects where observing the entire body of existing standards of machine safety was of crucial importance. This is always the case when, for example, a product needs to be licensed both according to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) and Performance Level (PL).


Typical examples of safety-related components in machine automation are:

  • Freely programmable controllers
  • Embedded systems with fixed programme control safety-relevant functions
  • Decentralized I/O modules
  • Safe sensors
  • Safe actuators
