Euchner has recently published SafetyBook – An Introduction to Safety Engineering. With this safety book, Euchner is making available its knowledge and the experience it has gained over 50 years in the field of safety engineering. It is the company's stated goal to contribute to the further development and simplification of safety applications in an increasingly complex legal environment. In particular, the introduction of the new EN ISO 13849-1 standard and the associated changes in the assessment of safety circuits have resulted in uncertainty on the part of users; Euchner has therefore paid close attention to this topic in the new book.
The SafetyBook is described as a resource for the planning and development of safety circuits to safeguard machines. Basic safety knowledge as well as legal and standard-related basics are conveyed through almost 200 pages. A detailed section with specific circuit examples rounds off the book. This section provides an informative basis for practical implementation and for solving safety problems.
The SafetyBook is available from Euchner priced EUR29.99.
