The EN ISO 13849 and EN 62061 standards for functional safety require assessments and calculations to determine the failure probability of safety circuits. The Phoenix Contact library for safety-related characteristic values according to VDMA data sheet 66413 has been updated with new products and language content.

As the distributor, the machine manufacturer is responsible for carrying out and documenting evaluations. Device manufacturers provide the relevant data (characteristics) for the safety-related devices used in machines from a product liability perspective. The safety technology calculations can be carried out with calculation tools (such as Sistema 2.x or later).

In order to standardize the characteristics, the standard 66413 VDMA data sheet has been adopted under the direction of the VDMA, as well as machine and component manufacturers and testing bodies. The Phoenix Contact library for safety-related characteristic values has been updated with new products and language content. It can be accessed either via the download area for the respective products or via the technology page on functional safety.
