Automotive Safety, Press incident

Automotive Safety, Press incident – Siemens AsiSafe, ASiMon, Rocketweel switch-lock units, Sick Scanners/Light barriers

This Machine, despite having been in operation for years without incident, trapped and pinned an engineer under a heating hood. Quick thinking by his colleague prevented serious injury.

Soft Control was awarded the contract to design and fit a safety system to exclude machine access without the machine being placed into a safe condition. It had to meet the requirements of the machine functional safety legislation ISO 13849, IEC 62061.

The project had to be completed within 4 weeks before an inspection by the HSE. This included technical manual / risk assessment, design, safety calculations, installation, commissioning, and testing.

The installation used Siemens ASiSafe, Siemens ASiMon and Siemens Asi, Hardened Rockwell 440G-MT integrated switch-lock units. Machine wiring was reduced using the Siemens ASi two wire communication bus which exhibits remarkable speed and signal integrity.

The outcome was a clean bill of health from HSE.
