The machine manufacturer must comply with the safety requirements of the Machinery Directive and confirm this by the CE marking on the machine and the EC Declaration of Conformity.
EN ISO 12100: The designer has to analyze risks associated with the machine and reduce by suitable measures.
EN ISO 13849-1: Safety requirement and basic principles for the design and integration of safety-related parts of control systems, including software design. In terms of safety-related parts of control systems, the features in more detail, inter alia, the so-called performance level, which is necessary to fulfill safety functions in accordance with the standard. This applies to safety-related parts of control systems, regardless of what type of technology and energy is used (mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, electric) and for all types of machines.
EN ISO 13849-2: Defines the validation of safety-related parts of control systems and their components. The machine manufacturer validates the control system, the component manufacturer components. SMC confirms the validation of components and provides the appropriate operating instructions and information on the life values B10 or B10d available.
EN IEC 62061: Refers particularly on operational reliability of safety-related electrical, electronic and programmable electronic control systems and defines a Safety Integrity Level (SIL).
