Control systems for machinery, whether electrical, pneumatic,
hydraulic or combinations there-of, are often required to perform
safety-related functions. There are regulatory requirements for
these control systems and established approaches for dealing with
their design, which are laid out in European Standards. This course
will help delegates understand how to specify and design safety
related control circuits which comply with the requirements of both
the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008 (Machinery
Directive 2006/42/EC) and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment
Regulations. It explains how these, and other regulations and
standards are applied to real-life situations, through the use of
examples of how to and how not to do it. The course provides
methods and templates developed at HSL to help engineers comply
with the relevant requirements effectively and efficiently.
The course concentrates mainly on the approach laid down in EN ISO
13849-1:2008, but also gives objective advice on the relevance of
other standards such as EN ISO 13840-2: 2012, EN 62061:2015, and
other Safety of Machinery standards, such as EN ISO 14119: 2013 on
The course will also explain the changes in the recently
updated standard EN ISO 13849-1: 2015.
- Relevant standards including EN ISO 13849-1:2006 & 2015,
and EN 62061:2015, EN ISO 14119: 2013
- Safety integrity levels, performance levels, categories, what
they are what they aren't and the difference between them
- Circuit design
- Demonstration of interlocking and other safety devices
- Potential user interference and misuse of safety devices
Who should attend?
Electrical, control and project engineers, whether they be original
equipment manufacturers or users involved in specifying control
systems on customized machinery / assemblies or significantly
modifying control systems on existing machinery / assemblies.
The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of
Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good
links to mainline train stations and Manchester International
Details of hotels in the Buxton area can be found at www.visitbuxton.co.uk
The cost of the course is £515 per person (includes course
notes, lunch and refreshments).
Please note that all courses must be paid for via credit
card at the time of booking.
