Safety-related signal technology


Safe applications in line with EU Machinery Directive

For applications with special risks, specific precautions must be taken in order to exclude these risks and ensure the highest level of safety. These applications are regulated by the EU Machinery Directive 2006/42EC. According to this directive, signalling devices can form part of such safety precautions and provide a warning of imminent danger. In principle, all WERMA products can be used in accordance with this directive. But we also offer specially designed products, depending on the type of application, to ensure functional safety in accordance with EN 13849-1 (PL) or IEC 61508 / IEC 61511 (SIL).
