How WERMA can achieve a safer working environment
29 September 2011
The Machine Safety Directive changes have increased the requirement on machine operators to ensure that equipment is fitted with adequate safeguards to prevent accidental injury. All WERMA beacons and sounders can be used for machine status warning indication, compliant with the new European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which has been valid since December 29 2009
Signal device manufacturer WERMA can offer the most extensive range of products in Europe that conforms to the new guidelines relating to machine safety. If the signal device on a machine is prioritised for safety purposes, the new directive stipulates that the design engineer must include a safety value for the device in his risk analysis. WERMA now offers these safety values for more than 100 signalling devices, ranging from signal towers to visual, audible or combined signal devices in various sizes and designs.
The German technical testing authority, TUV has tested and certified these signal devices with exceptional results; in particular, all products achieve the best MTTFd (mean time to dangerous failure) value of greater than 100 years. MTTFd specifies the nominal operational duration until device failure in accordance with the EN ISO 13849-1 safety standard.
The extensive range of beacons and sounders manufactured by WERMA Signaltechnik gives equipment operators and manufacturers the widest possible design choice in terms of beacon intensity and sounder tone output, as well as providing all the additional accessories required to complete the installation.
