Autec Achieves TÜV SÜD Certification
Italian control systems manufacturer Autec has achieved TÜV SÜD certification for the safety functions of its Dynamic Series of radio remote controls. German-headquartered certification organization TÜV SÜD’s certified experts and technical consultants optimize technology, systems and expertise at over 600 locations in Europe, America and Asia.
Third party certification of safety functions assures the customers of the manufacturer’s ability to design, test and maintain specific levels of safety in the entire products’ lifecycle, Autec said.
The stop function in the Dynamic Series complies with requirements of EN ISO 13849-1 Performance Level “e”, Cat. 4 and EN IEC 62061 Safety Integrity Level 3. The UMFS function (that protects actuators from Unintended Movement From their Standstill) provides on its side PL “d”, Cat. 3 / SIL2. The Stop function takes the machine to its "safe state", even in case a fault on the radio remote control should occur. The UMFS function protects against movements that are not deliberately activated by the user, even in case of a fault in the remote control.
The Dynamic Series can be used in a vast range of mobile hydraulic applications, including machines that involve the lifting of people, as it meets high functional safety standards. All the models in the Dynamic Series undergo severe tests and inspections to prove their robustness even in extreme working conditions (high/low temperature, vibrations, shocks, chemical agents) and offer IP 65 protection against water and dust.
