Free guide to functional machine safety

Anyone responsible for the functional safety of machinery – mechanical and electrical engineers, machine builders and systems integrators – can find help in the form of a 200 page compendium published by Pilz Automation Technology.


The ‘Safety Compendium’, which was compiled by a committee of machinery safety experts at Pilz that includes engineers, lawyers and academics, is intended as an overview or technical guide for those keen to learn more about the application of functional safety standards to machinery and all its other associated aspects.


Available to download or as a hard copy, the compendium is the successor to Pilz’s ‘Machinery Safety’ book. The Safety Compendium addresses a number of topics, including laws, directives and standards (including the new Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC); safeguards and other protective equipment; safety control technology; safety related communications; and safe motion control.
